Oh, what a week! What a lovely week!
Just days after a supercut of insane set footage went viral on the internet, “Mad Max: Fury Road” continues to bring the goods for fans this week. Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has officially announced the “Mad Max” High Octane Collection, which will feature all four films in the George Miller franchise and the long-rumored black-and-white edition of “Fury Road.” The collection will hit stores on Blu-ray ($79.99) and DVD ($54.97) on December 6, which means it’s the only Christmas gift a cinephile will need.
Fortunately, the black-and-white edition will also be hitting Blu-ray alongside the theatrical release of “Fury Road” ($29.98) in a special two-pack. The version has been floating around ever since George Miller spoke about making an early black-and-white cut of the film so that he could show composer Junkie XL. The director ended up loving the version, calling it more “authentic,” “elemental” and “the best version” of “Fury Road.” There wasn’t enough room on the film’s original DVD release to include the version, but now it’s finally coming this December.
The “Chrome Edition,” as it’s officially called, also includes a special introduction from Miller describing his vision for the movie.
