Oh what a day! What a lovely day! The National Board of Review has named Mad Max: Fury Road the best film of the 2015!
NBR President Annie Schulhof said, “2015 has been a banner year for popular cinema. We are thrilled to be awarding George Miller and Ridley Scott, two iconic filmmakers at the top of their game, while also celebrating the next generation of talent.” Scott also won big with The Martian getting three awards!
The summer blockbuster shot Tom Hardy to even more greater international acclaim, but honestly Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa stole the show, flanked by many and varied women in heroic roles.
George Miller, mastermind behind this iconic franchise, has shared that a Fury Road sequel is definitely on the cards, but Furiosa won’t be making a comeback.
We’ve also recently had a peek at what Miller’s version of the Justice League would have looked like, had he not dropped out of the project!
Theron reprises her role in Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, The Huntsman: Winter’s War as the Evil Queen, and her latest project is an adaptation of spy thriller The Gray Man, where she plays protagonist who, in the novel, is a man.
Hardy’s been busy too, also starring this year in Legend as both Kray twins, and early next year in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant, alongside Leonardo diCaprio. He’s also lined up for a Vertigo Comics adaptation of 100 Bullets, and an Elton John biopic called Rocketman. Currently, he’s on set for BBC drama Taboo, which he co-wrote, is co-producing alongside Ridley Scott, and starring in!
