It's always an uphill battle for R rated movies at the box office, but the fact that this summer's 'Mad Max: Fury Road' grossed nearly $370 million at the international box office is a solid result, not least because it's a sequel/reboot to a film last released thirty years ago. I suspect 'Fury Road' will have a good life on home video, and starting from next month Roadshow and Warner Entertainment will release the film on 3D and 2D Blu-ray HD, DVD and Digital across the world.
The Blu-ray versions come packed with 90 minutes of detailed making-of featurettes, as well as a number of deleted scenes and an UltraViolet digital code. Sadly, the black and white version that Director George Miller hoped to include has not made the cut - no doubt they're holding it back for some future re-release.
'Mad Max: Fury Road' is available to purchase on September 1st in the United States, September 2nd in Australia and October 5th in the United Kingdom.
