I would love to see another Mad Max film. Had no idea they were doing them again. Please don't be 3-D. Please don't be 3-D.

Unfortunately it's already going to be in 3D, but at least they're going to be filming it with actual 3D cameras and not done after the fact.

3D has almost become the norm, but like Dark said at least it is not being tacked on at the end.

Hollywood definitely is going crazy with the 3-D stuff right now. Looking forward to this film though, whenever it may come out.

This really sucks for the crew members who don't have jobs now and won't until February. That puts a lot of pressure on them. I mean it's great for the movies, because we'll get two of them, but that sucks for everyone else. I think I read somewhere that one of the lead actresses is about to drop out of the film because the new schedule conflicts with her other obligations.

I wonder how good a move this will be in the end.

Sounds like an ominous doom.

Im Master, he Blaster.

But anyways, I don't know how do you make a remake of a cult classic. If it a differnt story, differnt point of view then maybe. But I can not see this being a blockbuster, only getting critize on not being true to the original. But I would loved to proven wrong.

As far as I knew these new films are supposed to be sequels (a continuation of the Mad Max story) and not a remake...
