With director George Miller’s insane-looking fourth Mad Max movie, the Tom Hardy-starring Fury Road, due out this May, what better time to rewatch the first film in the series? “No better time!” say the folks at Scream Factory. The genre imprint is putting out a collector’s edition Blu-ray of 1979’s Mad Max on May 5 and, we can exclusively reveal, the rerelease will include new interviews with Mel Gibson – who originated the role of Australian cop Max Rockatansky – actress Joanne Samuel, and director of photography David Eggby. The Blu-ray will also feature a commentary with Eggby and others, a couple of featurettes (Mel Gibson: The Birth of a Superstar, Mad Max: The Film Phenomenon), theatrical trailers, TV spots, and photo galleries.
You can see trailers for both Mad Max and Mad Max: Fury Road below.
