Mad Max

Everyone knows that George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet) will be directing Mad Max 4: Fury Road, which will begin filming in Australia this summer, and that Mel Gibson has recently revealed that while he will produce the new film but will not appear in it.

 

Here is the cast line up so far, Tom Hardy (Bronson, RocknRolla) and Charlize Theron are the leads in the fourth Mad Max movie, and now we have Zoe Kravitz (The Brave One) will play a character named Five Wives and she will join Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories) and Adelaide Clemens in a convoy being chased by the bad guys. Also in addition, Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, Clash of the Titans) is also on board to play a character named Nux.

Now for the big update: Miller was always looking for a young actor to star in the film, so it was just assumed that Mad Max 4 would be a prequel. But now THR is claiming that the movie is set a short while after the story detailed in 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (the third installment), which keeps Mad Max relatively young.

FYI: In Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome Gibson was 29-years-old. Hardy is now 32-year-old, which makes him the right age to play Max after the events in the third film.

Kotobukiya which is a toy company that makes mini-statues and busts based on DC Comics, Marvel and Star Wars characters. The company has an exclusive deal with Marvel and gets all character designs before films appear in theaters.

Well if you look back at the designs for Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Punisher: War Zone, all the toys look exactly as they do in the movies. And yes they were all released before the movies ever hit theaters.

So keeping that in mind, Kotobukiya has just released a glimpse at their statues for Captain America and Thor, which means that this is probably our first look at what the characters will look like in their own respected films. You can check out the photos below.

Here is a few things e already know about the Green Lantern movie, that the main villain will be Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard), and director Martin Campbell has already revealed that plenty other characters from the origin story will also be included.

The good thing is that Campbell has said that the movie will follow the origin story of Green Lantern pretty closely, and that Sinestro may have a part in the film, but only as a mentor. It might not be until the sequel that we actulay get to see him go over to the dark side.

So in the mean time while we wait to see what Hammond, Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds) and Sinestro (Mark Strong) will look like, here is a sneak peek at some concept art of Kilowog, Tomar-Re and Abin Sur. These are members of the famous Green Lantern Corps.

We still have no clue as to who will play Abin Sur, but judging by the picture, it may just end up being Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean, Underworld). You can check out the concept art below.

During a press junket for Edge of Darkness, the actor confirmed that he will not reprise his role as Mad Max. He won’t even appear in a cameo. “No, not at all,” he said.

Even though there have been reports that British actor Tom Hardy has been cast in the lead, there has been no confirmation from director George Miller. Many were hoping that Gibson would return to the franchise after his production company signed on to produce Mad Max 4.

By reports the man had started to feel unwell during the screening of the film earlier this month and was rushed to the hospital where he arrived unconscious. A scan showed that his brain was hemorrhaging. “It’s likely that the over-excitement from watching the movie triggered his symptoms,” the doctor said.

The man died eleven days later from the brain hemorrhage, making it the first death linked to watching James Cameron’s science-fiction epic.

 

More than likely the death had nothing to do with the movie Avatar itself, but was a reaction to the film being watched in 3D format, which is known to trigger a lot of health problems. So if you have heart problems and high blood pressure it’s advisable to avoid 3D movies.
