5 Mad Max Facts You Didn’t Know About!

If you haven’t seen the new Mad Max film, that’s a problem you should definitely go fix! The film follows after the original three films that starred Mel Gibson, which were acclaimed as some of the best action films of all time; but although there’s definitely a loyal fanbase to George Miller’s Mad Max franchise, there’s still so much that fans don’t know about the world of Mad Max.

So here’s five Mad Max facts, you probably didn’t know about!

5. LIMITED BUDGET

Even though it’s one of the best movies of all time, it’s hard to think that the first Mad Max film, only had a budget of around $350,000. George Miller worked as a emergency room doctor beforehand just to try and raise the money for the film.

4. LORD HUMUNGUS, Or JIM GOOSE?

Most of us remember the villain from the second Mad Max film, but did you know Lord Humungus was supposed to be Jim Goose, Max’s partner from the first film. While that idea was later scrapped from the final draft, you can still spot a few hints that were left over. For example, the back of Humungus’ head is burned, and his gang has a tons of police vehicles.

3. GenIUS WITH CGI

Despite the modern technology of our current era, the majority of the special effects in Mad Max: Fury Road was done without the work of CGI. All of the stunts and explosions that you see were definitely real, and the only CGI in the film was used for the landscape, to remove stunt rigging, and for Charlize Theron’s fake prosthetic arm.

2. ONE LUCKY DOG

The dog that we all saw from Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior was rescued from being euthanized when the makers of the film were looking around pet shelters for a dog to act in the film. This particular dog was able to play around with a rock, which appealed to the makers of the film. After the film, he would later be adopted by one of the camera operators.

1. A REAL ACCIDENT

In Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, there is a scene where a stuntman flies off of a motorcycle and hits his leg on a car. He was originally supposed to fly over the car, but the stunt didn’t go as planned. The stuntman actually broke his leg badly, but they kept the scene in the movie because it looked cool.

Mad Max Fury Road is in theaters now!
