Let’s take a little journey back in time, oh, say about five years, to when we first heard tell of George Miller‘s latest installment of the Mad Max franchise, a small, dusty feature called Mad Max: Fury Road. Back then, in September of 2009 (do you even remember September of 2009? here’s a hint — the number one song for most of that month was “Obsessed” by Mariah Carey), the film was set to star an impressive duo of talents — the just-rising Tom Hardy and the always-good Charlize Theron. While their involvement hasn’t changed in the five years since the film was first announced, plenty else has. Really, plenty, from the rumor that it was to shoot back-to-back with a sequel to the plan to lens the whole thing in Australia to the obvious buzz that it would be shot in 3D. There’s also the fact that we’ve been talking about this film for nearly half a decade and that it’s finally, finally happening. Really! Mad Max: Fury Road is indeed happening — in fact, it’s happening so much that it already happened. The film has already been shot and is in post-production but that doesn’t mean a whole lot without a fresh glimpse at its two stars, now does it?
