If you have wanted to see George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road in black and white – or black and chrome – December 6 is your chance.
Miller is releasing a special edition of the 2015 masterpiece in conjunction with a High Octane Collection that will include all four films in blu ray and a 4K version of Fury Road. That sounds awesome, sure, but hearing Miller talk about Mad Max: Fury Road in black and chrome is what makes me salivate:
“One thing I’ve noticed is that the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now. The other version is to really go all-out on the color. The usual teal and orange thing? That’s all the colors we had to work with. The desert’s orange and the sky is teal, and we either could de-saturate it, or crank it up, to differentiate the movie. Plus, it can get really tiring watching this dull, de-saturated color, unless you go all the way out and make it black and white.”
December 6 is going to be Mad Max day for super fans.
