It's been nearly 30 years since the last sequel in the franchise hit theatres, becoming the top-grossing Australian film and holding the Guinness record for most profitable film for decades. The plot sees the titular character fight delinquency in a dystopian future filled with zealot motorcycle gangs and high crime.

Fury Road sees Tom Hardy step into the fold as Mad Max himself. Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicholas Hoult and Zoë Kravitz also star in the film, which has been in the franchise creator, George Miller’s mind since at least 2003, when he announced that a script had been written for a new film.

The project was then plunged into insecurity following “development hell”. Political sensitivities then took hold as filming locations such as Namibia proving to be a security concern following the U.S’s decision to tighten travel and shipping restrictions. The Iraq war then provided what looked like the final nail as Mad Max’s plot was considered to be politically incendiary.

But production picked up, and the casting of Tom Hardy in the lead role really helped to gather momentum for the film, which, according to Jason Boland – an Australian Photographer who has been taking stills on the set for Mad Max: Fury Road “is going to be epic."
