There are many different versions of Mad Max movie posters out there. But none ooze with neon retro cool like this original 1979 US-release version. Before the film studio knew that Mel Gibson's boyish good looks would be responsible for much of the box office windfall.
The 1979 Australian dystopian action film directed by George Miller, produced by Byron Kennedy, and starring Mel Gibson became a cult classic right outta the gate. The film presents a tale of societal collapse, murder, and revenge set in a future Australia, in which an unhinged policeman becomes embroiled in a violent feud with a savage motorcycle gang. If you haven't seen it, find it and watch it.
The film initially received a polarized reception upon its release in April 1979, although it won three AACTA Awards and attracted a cult following, while its critical reputation has grown since. Filmed on a budget of A$0.4 million, it earned more than US$100 million worldwide in gross revenue, and held the Guinness record for most profitable film.
