'Mad Max: Fury Road' comes to DVD in Black & White special edition
I loved Mad Max: Fury Road. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen, and when I drove home from the theater after the movie ended, all I wanted to do was listen to Judas Priest while speeding wildly down the freeway. Unfortunately, I live in Los Angeles, where you can never go faster than 10 mph. So that never really happened.
Just when you think they couldn’t improve on the multi-Oscar winner, something comes along to make the post-apocalyptic hellscape just one louder. Producers have decided to issue the “Black & Chrome” edition, which turns the entire movie into black and white. It’s the film you never thought you needed, but now you probably can’t live without.
In a 2015 interview with /Film, the movie’s director George Miller explained how fond he was of the MM:FR b&w when he said, “Every time I saw the black and white I thought ‘Oh, my god!’ It just reduces it to this really gutsy high-con black and white, very, very powerful.”
“Black & Chrome” goes on sale December 6. Copies of Judas Priest Painkiller not included.
