The fourth film, ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', was released in 2015 after thirty years in DevelopmentHell, and is set an ambiguous amount of time after ''Beyond Thunderdome''. Now something closer to "society" has crawled from the ruins of the old world: there are landed tribes, and alliances, and tyrants at the helm once more. Creator/TomHardy takes over the role of Max, who teams up with the elite Imperator Furiosa, played by Creator/CharlizeTheron. She's on a mission to help a group of women fleeing across the Wasteland from the Immortan Joe, the tyrannical warlord leader of the massive human colony known as "the Citadel." Production was delayed by higher-than-normal amounts of rainfall around [[UsefulNotes/AustralianStatesAndTerritories Broken Hill]] that made the area too green, so filming moved to Africa. George Miller and ''Fury Road'' co-writer Brendan [=McCarthy=] already have sequels written, the first of which is titled ''Mad Max: The Wasteland''.

The first film, ''Mad Max'', is set [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture "A Few Years From Now"]] at a time where [[TerminallyDependentSociety scarcity of oil]] is [[JustBeforeTheEnd beginning to cause the collapse of civilization]] -- law and order is barely holding on within the towns while the highways are controlled by the outlaw gangs. Max Rockatansky is a Main Force Patrol cop, held in high regard by his boss and peers, with a happy home with his wife and young son -- until run-ins with the motorcycle gang led by the villainous charismatic [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Toecutter]] cause his life to fall apart. Max famously goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge at the film's climax, but by the end he has lost everything. Made with practically no money and released in 1979, the film was surprisingly successful in Australia and around the world to the point where it was in ''The Guinness Book of World Records'' for decades as the most profitable film ever made. However, it was barely noticed in America, where it was only given limited release and all the characters' voices had been dubbed with American accents because distributors [[ViewersAreMorons thought the audience wouldn't understand what they were saying]].

No bolding for work titles. See format rules on How To Create A Works Page, 4th paragraph "No bolding is used for work titles" and FAQ: "What emphasis do I use for the title?: Whatever you do, it does not belong in boldface-font."

George Miller and ''Fury Road'' co-writer Brendan [=McCarthy=] already have sequels written, the first of which is titled ''Mad Max: The Wasteland''. ''Fury Road'' has a four-issue miniseries from Creator/VertigoComics written by George Miller, Nico Lathouris and Mark Sexton, serving as a prelude to the events of the movie, spotlighting Immortan Joe, Nux, Furiosa and Max. The graphic novel collection also includes the story of the War Rig. A video game by the developers of the ''VideoGame/JustCause'' games was released on September 1, 2015 for PC, XboxOne, and PlayStation4. It was originally announced as a tie-in game to ''Fury Road'', then was said to be an alt-universe standalone game, but was ultimately revealed as a stealth tie-in game. The plot is that Max was attacked by Scabrous Scrotus, one of Immortan Joe's sons, and has his beloved V8 Interceptor stolen for parts and he ends up working with Chumbucket, a deformed "blackfinger" [[note]]a mechanic with an unnatural savant-like understanding of vehicle engines[[/note]]. Chumbucket sees Max as an Angel sent by the god Combustion to help him complete his car, the Magnum Opus. Max simply sees Chumbucket as a means of getting a replacement vehicle so that he can finally reach an area of the Wasteland called the Plains of Silence and find peace in a world gone mad.
