Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.16.18] Australia post apocalyptic



Despite the success of Mad Max:Fury Road, I always thought a sequel to Miller's fourth movie was unlikely, at least in the foreseeable future, but everyone kept talking about it like it was a done deal. Well maybe now some reality will set in as George Miller's production company is taking Warner Bros. to court in what looks like a messy lawsuit.

The director’s production company, Kennedy Miller Mitchell is suing the studio for unpaid earnings on the post-apocalyptic movie and both parties are not playing nice.

Miller is accusing Warner Bros. of “high-handed, insulting or reprehensible” behavior and refusing to pay a $9 million bonus fee for delivering the movie under budget. Kennedy Miller Mitchell claims it delivered the movie under the agreed budget of $157 million while the studio is saying it cost $185.1 million.


As an added f-U to Miller, Warner Bros. filed their own lawsuit claiming that Kennedy Miller Mitchell broke their contract to deliver a 100-minute movie with a PG-13 rating when Miller turned in a 120 minute movie with an R rating.

Jesus, everyone. The film was a huge hit. You all made out like kings. Accept that and let's make another one already. I don't know about you, but I don't want to have to wait another 20 years for a Mad Max movie.

Now that you mention it. Why did the movie get an R rating? There was no nudity or cussing. The violence wasn't over the top to justify an R rating; I've seen worse in PG-13 movies (Die Hard 4).

Loved the first three, Fury road has been on TV, playing quietly behind me, and I have not bothered to watch more than a few minutes. For some reason, it just never appeals to me, I couldn't care less if they made another or not, Just out of interest, I live less then a mile from the location of the sand / crashed plane scenes in MM3.

well, based on their recent DC masterpieces, it's obvious WB has a good grasp on the industry.
