Mad Max: Fury Road gets new release date

Needless to say, it’s in 2015…

The list of big-name blockbusters scheduled for 2015 grows ever longer, with Warner announcing that Mad Max: Fury Road will now be arriving in the most crowded summer market in recent memory.

Having initially been slated for a 2014 release date, the film will now open on 15 May 2015, putting it in the same territory as Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which opens two weeks earlier.

Leading man Tom Hardy recently revealed that he was heading back out on location for a series of additional shoots, an announcement that seemed to point to another delay in the long-gestating project.

The new release date will now place the film exactly thirty years after the last instalment in the series, assuming of course that there isn’t another delay in the pipeline…

Meanwhile, 2015 grows ever more jammed with summer tentpoles. Surely we’re at capacity now? Standing room only? We shall see…

      This has got to be one of the longest productions in history?? I have no idea whether this will be good or not but have a bad feeling that when / if it is released, it will be lost into the abyss of 'no-one cares' especially more than ever now with this news as it will be completely overshadowed.

      It's crazy to think that this film was originally scheduled for release in summer 2012. I hope the delay is worth it. The Star Trek reboot and World War Z are recent examples where pushing the release date back has benefitted the final product. However, both of those were delayed by 6 months, not 3 years ...

      I think the makers and journos might be overestimating how big this will be. It isnt going to rival avengers 2 unless there's a big marketing campaign, it'll open in top 3 in US but really, is this intended to be a big money-spinner? wait until rebootcop comes out and then see how much marketing money gets thrown on it

      Warner Brothers are probably way over budget on this film by now. They better hope none of the actors do anything stupid between now and 2013 (see Shia Labeouf for reference).
