â€œIt was mental in a brilliant way,â€ Tom said about filming the movie. â€œYou have no concrete, no coffee shops. We were in the middle of a sandpit.â€â€œI wanted to tell a linear storyâ€“a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes,â€ director George Miller said to the mag. â€œIn this crucible of very intense action, the characters are revealed.â€ EW.com
The film, which Miller calls â€œalmost a continuous chase,â€ extends the story of the first Mad Max film, but itâ€™s not necessarily within the canon of the rest of the series. â€œOf course itâ€™s based on the same character that theyâ€™ll play, the lone warrior in the wasteland disengaged from the rest of the world,â€ he said in a press conference. â€œBut naturally Tom brings his Tom Hardy-ness to it, and the story is different to some degree. The character is different to some degree.â€ Hardyâ€™s Max will be joined by Charlize Theron, playing a warrior known as Furiosa.Miller said that his post-apocalyptic film will deal with some of the same issues as its older counterparts. â€œIn many ways weâ€™re sort of doomed to repeat the whole history,â€ he said. The Road Warrior, to some extent, was inspired by the oil crisis of 1973, when an embargo by oil-producing Arab countries led to shortages and rationing. â€œPeople effectively went to war for oil,â€ he said. â€œWe arguably have been fighting oil wars ever since. Now, in some places in the world, there are water wars.â€
