Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron
Set in a post-apocalyptic era after a nuclear holocaust, the film sees survivor Max Rockatansky (Hardy) captured by the War Boys, the army of the tyrannical leader Immortan Joe. Max is chained and used as a blood bank for one of the army’s sick boys. Meanwhile, Joe sends Imperator Furiosa (Theron), one of his lieutenants, on a mission to collect gasoline—only to realise later that she has also abducted his five wives. A monumental desert chase follows. Max is caught up in the midst of it all, and soon becomes Furiosa’s right-hand man in her attempt to get to her homeland, called the Green Place. Editor Margaret Sixel, director George Miller’s wife, had to watch over 480 hours of original footage in around three months.
