Here are a few fun facts about Mad Max Fury Road:
- In creating the look of the film, director George Miller laid down two stipulations for the production to follow. Firstly, the cinematography would be as colorful as possible in order to differentiate the film from other post-apocalyptic movies which typically have bleak desaturated colors. The initial concept was for a black and white film; however, producers heavily advised against this as it would deter audiences.
- Secondly, the art direction would be as beautiful as possible as Miller reasoned that people living in the post-apocalypse would try to find whatever scraps of beauty they could in their meager environment.
- George Miller and Charlize Theron didn’t get along with Tom Hardy during filming. They both found him difficult to work with. Hardy would later apologize to Miller at the film’s Cannes premiere.
