MAD MAX Spinoff FURIOSA Will Be Australia's Biggest Movie Ever; Chris Hemsworth Shares Excitement

Mad Max director George Miller held a press conference today to talk about Furiosa, confirming that it will be the biggest film ever made in Australia. Chris Hemsworth has also shared his excitement!

There's good news for Mad Max spinoff Furiosa today as the highly anticipated movie (starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) revs up to begin production in Australia. A press conference was held in New South Wales today, and it was confirmed that the movie will be the biggest ever made in the country. 

At least $350 million (AUD) is being injected into the local economy, with 850 jobs being created in the process. 

Director George Miller was looking to film a key action sequence this year, with cars build and stunts prepared before Australia's state tax incentive was decreased. However, now that's been extended, there's no rush. "Since we started Fury Road I think there’s been six different regimes at Warner Bros.," the filmmaker said, addressing Furiosa's delays. "Now it’s stabilized very much and they’re able to basically pay attention coherently to the films they want to make and this is one of them."

Emphasising that he's keen for moviegoers to watch this spinoff on the big screen, Miller promised that Furiosa will be a "unique" addition to the franchise, but one that still feels familiar to fans. 

Chris Hemsworth, who is in Australia shooting Thor: Love and Thunder, was also on hand. He described the movie as the "biggest pinch-myself moment, because I’ve grown up watching it [Mad Max] and it’s so iconic. It is a huge honor. A lot of pressure, but exciting pressure that is certainly motivating."

While shooting isn't set to begin for a while yet, it looks like we'll have more to share from Furiosa soon.
