Mad Mel returns to Blu-ray in style this summer!
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers will be releasing 'The Mad Max Trilogy' on Blu-ray on June 4.
The three films – 'Mad Max' (1979), 'Mad Max Road Warrior' (1982) and 'Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome' (1985) – are all set in the near-future in Australia. From the very first film, Oscar® winner George Miller ('Happy Feet,' 2006) proved a master at creating the gritty, bleak dystopian world and staging the incredible car stunts and crashes in the era when stuntmen, not computers, achieved the effects. All three movies starred Mel Gibson, virtually unknown until after the second film, as Max Rockatansky, a highway cop traveling through the Outback in a society descending into chaos. The films started Gibson on his road to international superstardom, led to his signature 'Lethal Weapon' series, and later two Academy Awards® for his roles as producer and director of 'Braveheart' (1995).
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray set is $49.99.
