In 1979, George Miller drastically altered the cinematic landscape with the introduction of MAD MAX. Miller and producer Byron Kennedy turned their scrappy low-budget exploitation effort into a raging global phenomenon, introducing audiences to its unique post-apocalyptic setting, ferocious white-line stuntwork, and the bravado performance of then-rookie actor Mel Gibson.
And if MAD MAX lit the fuse, THE ROAD WARRIOR exploded with a fury that has burned strong enough to celebrate the 35th anniversary of its U.S. release this year, plus spawning two more sequels: MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME, and MAD MAX: FURY ROAD — which garnered ten Oscar nods, including Best Picture, and won six.
This summer, Creature Features goes hell on wheels in celebrating the lauded franchise with this group art show featuring our blazing group of talented artists from every corner of the pop culture universe — comics, animation, visual FX, make-up FX, production design, fine art, and more.
