Extravagantly deranged and entirely over the top, George Miller has revived his Mad Max punk-western franchise as a bizarre convoy chase action-thriller in the post-apocalyptic desert in his movie, Mad Max: Fury Road. There are dozens of huge rigs and chunky 18-wheelers driven by large, angry men with long hair and bad teeth, and their rides are pimped out with skulls and other gory accessories. Some of these assault vehicles have permanent armies of drummers on board, thumping belligerently and rhythmically away, creating the kind of scary and upsetting noise usually only heard on the streets of the Edinburgh festival. For fans of the original Mad Max trilogy, this new movie is sure to please. We have comprised a list of the best Mad Max gear in order to celebrate.

The book features art inspired by the film, with each image in the unique style of its artist. Every artist created their own double page spread, portraying everything from action sequences to character portraits.

Welcome to Wherever You Are
Welcome to Wherever You Are is a feature length documentary celebrating the Mad Max mythology! A group of Max devotee's build a replica Interceptor, one of the most insane Mad Max cars, to drive it across the Australian desert, visit locations from the Mad Max trilogy, and talk to locals about their Max experiences. Everything was documented including interludes with police, arguments, vehicle break downs, and so on. The documentary ends at Bathurst during race weekend where over 70 street vehicles are destroyed as the Mad Max sub culture collides. This mountain mayhem of destruction had never before been filmed and resulted in a variety of threats and legal 'discussions' attempting to squash its release. It was also banned from Australian TV. You don't have to be a rev head, Mad Max, or V8 fan to enjoy this but it helps!
