"Black and Chrome" Cut of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Will Finally be Released.
The black & white version of Fury Road has been talked about for some time now, George Miller himself even spoke about how much he wanted the world to see the version of the film. Money talks though, so it wasn't released when the film came out on blu-ray months and months ago, they knew they had something worth a double-dip on their hands. The appropriately titled "Black and Chrome" cut will finally be seeing the light of day and will be able to be viewed in two different releases.
I know this is a cash-grab, but I NEED it. There is nothing stopping me from this double-dip as I've been waiting for quite some time to watch this spectacular film in black and white. The black and white version isn't all that's new though. The Mad Max High-Octane Collection will come with an array of new special features along with the "Black and Chrome" cut:
"Fury Road “Black & Chrome” Edition – Witness the surreal black and white version of mastermind George Miller’s Fury Road.
George Miller Introduction to the Mad Max Fury Road: Black and Chrome Edition – Special introductory piece by George Miller describing his vision.
Road War – In 1982, the world was blindsided by George Miller’s masterpiece of apocalyptic destruction: The Road Warrior. For the first time ever George Miller, Terry Hayes and star Mel Gibson tell the story of the car-crushing production that redefined action cinema forever.
Madness of Max – The previously released Mad Max (1979) documentary is a feature-length documentary on the making of arguably the most influential movie of the past thirty years. With over forty cast-and-crew interviews, hundreds of behind-the-scenes photographs and never-before-seen film footage of the shoot, this is, without a doubt, the last word on Mad Max (1979). Interviews include: George Miller, Byron Kennedy, Mel Gibson, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Steve Bisley, Roger Ward, Joanne Samuel, David Eggby, Jon Dowding and many more. From the Producers to the Bike Designers to the Traffic Stoppers, this is the story of how Mad Max was made."
I'll probably end up taking the plunge on the High-Octane Collection if I'm being perfectly honest. It's a little sad though because I already own every single Mad Max movie separately, but oh well. Both editions of the film will be available to buy on December 9th with MSRPs of $79.99 and $29.98, though I'm sure they'll be sold for a lot cheaper if you pick 'em up during their first week of release.
