Mad Max: Fury Road High Octane Collection announced

What a day! What a lovely day! Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) director George Miller has been mumbling hints about a black and white edition of his extraordinary post-apocalyptic adventure for some time, and we had effective confirmation a couple of months ago, but now it is official.

Two new Blu-ray releases are being packaged up. The first, for true Max Rockatansky completists, is entitled the Mad Max High Octane Collection and brings together all four films in the Mad Max series – Mad Max (1979), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) – into one juicy package.

The collection also includes the Black and Chrome edition of Mad Max: Fury Road, which was carefully colour calibrated by Miller himself, plus over five hours of bonus content, including a feature length documentary on the original film.

There is also the slimmer Fury Road: Two Film Collection which has the latest film and its monochromatic alternate edition, including a special introduction from Miller himself, explaining his vision.

Both Blu-ray packages, shiny and chrome, arrive in the US on 25 October. While there is no confirmation of a UK release date as yet, it will surely reach us before we are awaited in Valhalla.
