Mad Max

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mad Max is a 1979 Australian dystopian action film
directed by George Miller, produced by Byron Kennedy, Mad Max
and starring Mel Gibson as "Mad" Max Rockatansky,
Joanne Samuel, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Steve Bisley, Tim
Burns, and Roger Ward. James McCausland and Miller
wrote the screenplay from a story by Miller and Kennedy.
The film presents a tale of societal collapse, murder, and
vengeance set in a future Australia, in which a vengeful
policeman becomes embroiled in a feud with a vicious
motorcycle gang. Principal photography took place in and
around Melbourne, Australia, and lasted six weeks.

The film initially received a polarized reception upon its
release in April 1979, although it won three AACTA
Awards and attracted a cult following, while its critical
reputation has grown since. The film earned more than
US$100 million worldwide in gross revenue. It held the
Guinness record for most profitable film and has been
credited for further opening up the global market to
Australian New Wave films. The film became the first in a Australian theatrical release poster
series, giving rise to the sequels Mad Max 2: The Road
