Watch the trailer for the new Mad Max movie (VIDEO)

30 years ago, Mel Gibson played Mad Max in the violent cult road warrior movie. Next year a new film in the series will feature Tom Hardy in the role of the silent anti-hero.

 

Anyone remember ‘Mad Max’? Mel Gibson’s breakthrough and the first real starring role was as the traffic police up in a violent dystopic future world. The film was banned in Sweden in 1979, much like Monty Python’s ‘Life of Brian’ in Norway, so when the sequel came two years later it was renamed to ‘Road Warrior’. It also followed by a third film, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, which was so bad that the only thing people remember is Tina Turner’s theme song.

Now Max is back. The Australian director George Miller is making a fourth film, ‘Fury Road’, with Tom Hardy (Bane in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’) in the role of Max, and with South African Charlize Theron (‘Monster’, ‘The Cider House Rules’) in the supporting role.

The film begins in the dystopian future-Australia where ‘Road Warrior’ left off, and if the trailer is to be believed we can expect a to see a lot of action. The movie is set to premiere in May 2015.

Timbaland on Missy Elliott’s new album (VIDEO)

Rapper Missy Elliott has not issued any albums for almost ten years. Now it seems as if some new material could soon see the light of day.

Her longtime collaborator, producer Timbaland, tells Rolling Stone that an album is in the works.

– It’s just a question of when she wants to do it, he says.

When asked how the new material sounds, Timbaland responded:

– It’s something you never heard Missy do. It sounds like today, though, the future.

Missy Elliott debuted with “Supa dupa fly” in 1997. Since then she has made five CDs including the latest, “The Cookbook,” released in 2005.

Paul McCartney will release the material which remained unpublished with Wings, in reissued versions of the ‘At the Speed of Sound’ and ‘Venus and Mars’ albums on September 23.

Universal Music has informed that both albums will be published in a variety of formats, but in all cases will include two discs that contain, in the first volume, the remastered original material and, in the second, several demos and themes unknown to the general public.

In addition to an deluxe edition that will include a book with interviews and material from the personal archive of the artist, a DVD additional footage will also be available.

After the dissolution of The Beatles, McCartney founded Wings along with his then wife, Linda, and the guitarist of Moody Blues Denny Laine. The group released a total of nine albums.

Following the commercial success of 1973’s ‘Band on the Run’ they followed it up in a very similar stylistic vein with 1975’s ‘Venus and Mars’, then with Jimmy McCulloch among their ranks.

The album, recorded in New Orleans and London, reached the number 1 both in the United Kingdom and in the United States and included songs like ‘Listen to What the Man Said’.

‘Wings at the Speed of Sound’ (1976), which had a similar commercial fate, led it to be number one in sales in the United States, and number two in the United Kingdom. That album included songs like ‘Silly Love Songs’ and ‘Let ‘ em In’.
