A video showing footage from the Warner Bros.’ distributed Mad Max: Fury Road without the CGI effects posted last Thursday on YouTube is now trending on social media with 1.72M views (and climbing) in less than a week, which shows the film’s strong fan base and staying power of this action eye-candy from director George Miller. The film released in the summer of 2015 and went on to make $378.4M at the worldwide box office. It also ended up gathering six Academy Awards — the most of any other film last year — after receiving a big 10 nominations to begin with, including Best Director and Best Picture. The film starred Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy. Miller told Deadline during a Q&A, that he thought of the film as “a visual rock opera.” Gotta give props to John Seale who worked as cinematographer and on multiple cameras as you can see in the clip. He was also nominated for an Academy Award this past year. This footage was put together last year for Warner Home Entertainment’s division by digital advertising agency space150.
