Mad Max director George Miller says he has "other stories and other scripts" to continue the rejuvenated franchise, though that any further movies depends on the success of the latest film, Fury Road.

In that case, the director shouldn't have any problems getting a sequel green-lighted with Fury Road gaining critical acclaim ahead of its release on Friday (May 15).

"We've got other stories and other scripts, but it really depends on how this goes and whether everyone - particularly me - has an appetite to go back into the wasteland. Going back to the baby analogy, it's like asking a woman who's just given birth, 'You wanna try it again?' 'No!'" Miller said at the premiere this week.

Star Tom Hardy certainly seems open to sequels, telling Variety, "On the level of really cool characters to play in an epic franchise, Max is right up there. There's no CGI - very, very little - and it's brutally visceral."

"Thirty years after Miller gave the world Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, he's returned to his own post-apocalyptic world and created an exceptional, fearless and poetic masterpiece that's primed to become a modern classic," said Lindsey Bahr of the Associated Press.

"With Fury Road, director George Miller returns to the lawless, oil-deprived future of his seminal series for the first time in three decades. It was worth the wait," said A.A. Dowd of AV Club.

"Mad Max: Fury Road is a masterpiece of cinema, a full throttle symphony of mayhem and exhilaration that will blow audiences out of their chairs," said Julian Roman of Movieweb.

Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
