About Mad Max’s sequel Furorisa
Known for his visionary filmmaking, George Miller maximizes the vastness of the Australian outback to breathe life into the action sequences, capturing the essence of the film brilliantly. The first batch of released images showcases the stunning cinematography, with Anya Taylor-Joy in the spotlight as the young Furiosa. Chris Hemsworth, undergoing a transformative role as the Biker Warlord Dementus, adds an extra layer of intrigue.
Much like its prequel,
Mad Max: Fury Road, Miller takes full advantage of the Australian landscape, offering wide-angled shots that amplify the intensity of the action. The lighting techniques, especially in portraying Furiosa within the confines of her vehicle, contribute to the film’s visual allure. Anya Taylor-Joy’s portrayal of the titular hero assures fans that she is the perfect choice to carry on the legacy established by Charlize Theron in the acclaimed 2014 classic, which also starred Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky.
The official plot synopsis released by Warner Bros. sets the stage for Furiosa’s journey
“As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home. Taylor-Joy stars in the title role, and along with Hemsworth, the film also stars Alyla Browne and Tom Burke.”
Chris Hemsworth said about his character Warlord Dementus, “He’s a complicated individual. He’s a very violent, insane, brutal person that is born from the Wasteland, which is the world the ‘Mad Max’ saga takes place in. He’s a product of his environment, he has been birthed into a space where it’s kill or be killed. He’s learned to rule with an iron fist. There’s a charisma to him and it’s a very manipulative charisma,” per Variety.
Who is returning to the sequel Furorisa?
George Miller, the director of the prequel, teamed up with Nico Lathouris to write the story. His last movie, Fury Road, with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, was a big hit, getting 10 nominations at the Academy Awards and winning in categories like editing, sound, and design.
Now, for the new movie Furiosa, many of the talented people who worked on “Fury Road” are back, like the editor Margaret Sixel, costume designer Jenny Beavan, and composer Junkie XL. The sequel’s visuals will be handled by cinematographer Simon Dugan, taking over from John Seale, who worked on Fury Road but decided to retire.
