It has been over three decades since Australian filmmaker George Miller made his directorial debut with the low budget, but hugely successful, post-apocalyptic action film 'Mad Max,' which also propelled Hollywood legend Mel Gibson into worldwide fame.

The pair's first collaboration was so well received, two sequels soon followed with 1981´s 'The Road Warrior' and 1985´s 'Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome'. But with an entirely new cast, different leading man and much more advanced filming techniques, how did Miller bring the 80's classic into the modern age of cinematography with 'Mad Max: Fury Road'?

The rebooted franchise now has Tom Hardy in the leading role, and the supporting cast is equally impressive with the likes of Charlize Theron, Nicolas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, plus many more.

Although Miller will undoubtedly not regret joining such a star-studded production, he initially had no intention of returning to the film series that gave him global recognition.
