Charlize Theron has been a Jalopnik fixture for awhile now, showing up in good and great movies including The Italian Job reboot, Mad Max: Fury Road, and this year’s The Fate of the Furious, where she plays a super no good cyber hacking person who turns cars into zombies. But the first trailer for her other action…
Tonight on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, we uncover the best kept secret of the post-nuclear-holocaust desert: Immortan Joe’s Citadel!
“Wasteland Weekend” is a Mad Max-style ComicCon that goes down in the desert. You know, for realism. Our man Sweet Lips here got into Wastelanding with pirate-themed bitchin’ Camaro, then upgraded to a damn sand-sunken Exxon Valdez.
Some evil genius put Mad Max: Fury Road audio over Disney’s Cars and the result is pure adorable evil. You’ll never look at Lightning McQueen without flinching again.
I’m not over lifted muscle cars yet. Especially when they’re as badass as this diesel-powered ’73 Road Runner, and we get to watch them run from wasteland marauders!
You may not realize this, but the Mad Max you grew up watching was likely the American-dubbed version and not the Aussie original. At the Jalopnik Film Festival later this month in Los Angeles we’ll be presenting the Aussie version. Just watch these two clips and you’ll see why.
If you live in Seattle and you need a ride to Valhalla, you’re in luck. The driver-on-demand app Uber is running a promotion with the new Mad Max video game that puts passengers inside post-apocalyptic-inspired vehicles.
What is the point of life? Is it all ultimately meaningless? Yes. But there are ways to be happy. Like watching this video mashup of The Cannonball Run with Mad Max: Fury Road. That is all you need to be happy.
We’ve already gone deep into the creation of the cars in Mad Max: Fury Road, but we haven’t delved into the details about the bikes. It’s time to rectify that.
Mad Max: Fury Road is nothing short of a full-on two-hour assault for the senses. Even though you’ve been told that almost all the stunts were real, it’s almost hard to believe when seeing it on the big screen. So here’s over 18 minutes of raw footage, so you can see them really doing it for yourself.
If you read our feature on the man behind the post-apocalyptic machines of Mad Max, you know that he wants to name one of the cars in the sequel Jalopnik. Now you can get the lowdown on the non-Jalop-monikered vehicles that are going to blow up the screen this Friday.
“Make it cool or I’ll kill you.” That’s what director George Miller told Colin Gibson, the production designer responsible for all the cars in Mad Max: Fury Road. Gibson did one better: he made every single one of them functional, because the desert doesn’t suffer mechanical fools lightly and CGI is bullshit.
How pumped are you for Mad Max: Fury Road? It’s been 30 years since the last one, but now we’re just a week away from a new installment of George Miller’s explosion-tacular, post-apocalyptic festival of mayhem. First let’s look at the method behind the madness.
Let's say your little Seymour or Brynleee wants a Power Wheels car, but they're not like the other kids. They think Barbie's Mustang is for cowards, the F-150 isn't menacing enough, and the Jeep lacks outright slaughtering power. What do you get for your lil' desert warlord?
In a move uncharacteristic of the franchise, yesterday's new Mad Max teaser is full of cars, explosions, and hardened stares.
Stop what you're doing right now and watch the new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road. Two words: Holy shitballs.
Remove a significant amount of paint, add more rust and a monstrous supercharger. It will intercept.
So you may have heard that there's a new Mad Max movie coming out. And, aside from providing a ton of screenshots that could be mistaken for a day at Burning Man, there's one thing you know a Mad Max movie will provide: lots of heavily modified cars. Let's see if we can figure out what they all are!
If you look at this Ford XA Falcon and think "Oh my god, that's the most badass thing I've ever seen," I don't blame you. Eight headlamps, full protection against loose kangaroos, a V8. It's the full package.
With Mad Max: Fury Road around the corner, it's a hip time to envision the post-apocalypse. In that vein, good friend and pro shooter Douglas Sonders captured the feel at "Wasteland Weekend." Here's a wallpaper courtesy of Sonders, with more photos and video on his site. Embrace the end of the world.
