Vanaf deze week zal Mad Max: Fury Road in de Nederlandse bioscopen te zien zijn,en zijn de eerste reviews heel erg lovende en zeggen zelfs dat de hype er omheen terecht is. Nu ben ik nog al skeptisch, want vanwege nostalgie zijn de oude films mijn favoriet. Maar goed, er is een nieuwe featurette verschenen en vertelde Tom Hardy en Charlize Theron je in dit interview hoe tof het wel niet was om in deze film te mogen spelen.
Question: Tom, the Max in this movie seems to be more broken than we've ever seen him before. Were you reflecting on all that he's been through in the previous three movies?
TOM HARDY: I think he's supposed to be broken, isn't he? In many ways, he's a broken-spirited man. We start off with Max in a hermetic lifestyle, in the beginning. He wants to be left alone. And then, we see him open up throughout the movie, connect with humanity around him, and be broken again, really. And then, he's sent off into the Wasteland. I'm not sure quite where this fits into the films prior to it, but there was a succession of conversations about and around the world and mythology previous. George [Miller] wanted him to be broken, at the beginning, and then suitably broken again.
