Fancy brushing up on your Mad Max knowledge ahead of the highly-anticipated release of George Miller's latest instalment, Mad Max: Fury Road?
Screenings of the first two films, Mad Max and Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, are taking place across Ireland from May 9-13 ahead of the Fury Road nationwide release on May 14.
Mad Max, starring Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky, blazed a trail in 1979, and its influence can be seen in countless post-apocalyptic films that sprouted in its wake. It was followed up 1981 by the second instalment.
Fury Road stars Tom Hardy in the role previously inhabited by Mel Gibson. This time around Max gets swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron).
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.
Screenings of Mad Max and Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior will take place nationwide in Ireland from the 9th to the 13th of May in the following cinemas, check cinema websites for further details:
