If for some reason you were following Amazon Germany's Blu-Ray listings then you might have noticed the addition of Mad Max: High Octane Collection. What was so special about this cut compared to the already awesome version of George Miller's classic that we have now? Well, it contains the sought-after black & white cut that Miller himself has called more "authentic and elemental". Seriously? MORE elemental? MORE authentic? Guh.
Well get ready because the Mad Max: High Octane Collection is headed our way, officially announced for December 6th. The 6-disc set includes all four movies from Miller's apocalyptic franchise: Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, and of course, Mad Max: Fury Road which you can check out in the "Black & Chrome" edition. What a glorious day!!
And if that's too much, you can get the Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome Edition, a simpler two-movie set that includes the theatrical cut along with the black & white cut. I know which way I'm going.
We'll let you know as soon as these are available for pre-order, but for now check out the special features, a killer trailer for the black & white edition, and an amazing video that shows what the movie looks like minus the special effects. What Miller actually was out there shooting is simply mind-blowing.
