George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road blew away all expectations when it roared into theaters last summer. It was universally praised, and while it didn’t make as much money as some may have hoped, it still was considered by many as the best film of 2015. Now a year removed from its wild premiere, a big question still remains about the western-on-wheels. Since only the theatrical version of the film has been released so far, many are wondering what’s next for the action epic. But it’s recently been announced that an upcoming Mad Max Blu-ray collection will include the mysterious black-and-white version.
Currently exclusive to Amazon Germany, a new six-disc set called the Mad Max High Octane Collection has just opened for preorder. The collection contains all four films, the documentary The Madness of Max and all-new features for The Road Warrior, Beyond Thunderdome, and Fury Road. But what’s most exciting is that it also includes the “Black and Chrome” edition of Fury Road. Check out the preorder page’s description of the new version below.
Fury Road “Black and Chrome” Edition – The surreal black-and-white film version of Fury Road of the brilliant George Miller (about 120 minutes)
Early rumors had teased that the alternate edition of Fury Road was going to be included on the film’s original home release last year. That sadly did not come true, so many have been awaiting when this enticing new version would land. Like the theatrical cut, the “Black and Chrome” edition is also 120 minutes long. This means that there’s probably not any additional footage to the film, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still in store for a great new experience with its new look. But as wonderful as this news is, the collection has no release date yet for the U.S. or other countries. We will keep you updated if anything changes.
The Mad Max High Octane Collection will be available for purchase in Germany on September 29, 2016.
