One of the biggest spectacles of the spring will race onto the small-screen later this summer. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Mad Max: Fury Road Blu-ray release date as September 1. If you’re inclined to grab the digital version instead of a disc-based one, you can download Mad Max: Fury Road beginning August 11.
The Mad Max: Fury Road Blu-ray combo pack will come in two flavors: the standard 2D version and what should be a sweat-inducing 3D Blu-ray edition. Both versions, along with the Digital HD iteration, will include the core movie as well as more than 90 minutes of special features.
Also available Sept. 1 will be the Mad Max 4-Film Blu-ray Anthology, which promises to be absolutely epic. The anthology includes the original “Mad Max” (1979), “The Road Warrior” (1981), “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” (1985) and “Mad Max: Fury Road” — all on Blu-ray Disc. The Anthology set will also include a DVD-based documentary called “Madness of Max,” plus a slew of Mad Max Anthology trading cards. The Anthology pack carries an MSRP of $89.98, though currently has it for about $10 off.
In Mad Max: Fury Road, Max is haunted by his turbulent past and believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator named Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
Somewhat surprisingly, the Mad Max: Fury Road Blu-ray combo pack and standard-definition 2-disc DVD set both contain the same special features:
- Maximum Fury: Filming Fury Road
- Mad Max: Fury on Four Wheels
- The Road Warriors: Max and Furiosa
- The Tools of the Wasteland
- The Five Wives: So Shiny, So Chrome
- Fury Road: Crash & Smash
- Deleted Scenes
The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack carries an MSRP of $44.95, the standard Blu-ray set is $35.99, and the DVD set is $28.98. A similarly priced Mad Max: Fury Road Digital HD edition will be available to own via streaming and for download on Aug. 11 from select digital retailers such as Amazon, CinemaNow, Flixster, Google Play, iTunes, PlayStation, Vudu and Xbox.
The Mad Max: Fury Road Blu-ray 3D Combo and Blu-ray Combo Packs both include Digital HD with UltraViolet.
