I have never seen a film series has captured the anarchic dystopian science-fiction vibe as giddily as George Miller’s Mad Max movies. From 1979’s original Mad Max through 1981’s The Road Warrior and then slamming into Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in 1985, the future was brutal, toxic, barren, and filled with rabid vehicular beasts built from scraps that civilization had left behind. Thirty years later, it’s time to get back to some Australian post apocalyptic insanity.
Here are vehicles in Gifs which are featured in the Mad Max: Fury Road. But this is nowhere near a comprehensive catalog of the 150-or-so lunatic machines conceived by production designer Colin Gibson and built by the production company. Keep in mind that practically all the stunts seen in Fury Road were done “practically,” which means physically, in the real world, using actual cars and living stunt people. Cars had to be built to be reliable and rugged rather than fast. And, of course, there were duplicates of all these vehicles. After all, having a film crew wait around for a broken car to be fixed is very expensive.
