As the sequel to the 2008 box office hit “Mad Max” prepares to open in theaters nationwide on Thursday, the film’s producers have been busy working on its sequel, “Fury Road,” which is scheduled to open on July 24.
In an interview with Variety, director George Miller and co-writer Chris Terrio confirmed the film will feature some of the most expensive cars in the world and will feature the world’s highest-octane, supercharged motorcycles.
They also confirmed that the film has a budget of $1 billion, making it one of the biggest films in history, with an estimated $3.7 billion in worldwide ticket sales.
The film has already grossed $3 billion at domestic box offices and $1,400 million worldwide.
But that was before its May 17 opening, and the film is expected to have an even bigger opening in August when it will open in Australia and New Zealand.
It is not yet known whether the film can break into the $4 billion range in the U:R market.
While the film opens in a world that looks like it will resemble the Mad Max series of books, Miller said that the world is still far from being “a dystopian society.”
“We have some really beautiful, beautiful, interesting places to explore, and we have the possibility to take that world and create a place that’s so different from the ones that we know and love,” Miller said.
“We have to be very careful, because you always have to do things in your world in a way that makes sense.”
The film will be the fourth film to star Chris Pratt and Charlize Theron in the “Furies.”
They are the only actors to appear in the franchise.
“Fury” was based on the novels by Max Brooks and is set in the year 2034.
Its screenplay, by Terrio and Miller, is by Tom McCarthy.
Miller said “Furious” will explore the characters and storylines of the original book, which has been adapted into several feature films.
The first “Furry” movie was released in 2003 and grossed nearly $250 million.
The second film, “Cars,” earned $180 million.
“We knew that it would take a little bit of time,” Miller told Variety.
“It took a lot of work to make it work.
But it was worth it.
We felt like we did a very good job.”
