Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller probably didn’t realise the avalanche of discussion he set off when he first mentioned a black-and-white version of his award-winning film. We’ve chronicled the mystery behind this version of the film in the past, but now it seems like it’s actually happening.
Empire Online found an Amazon listing for an upcoming German, six-disc Mad Max collection called the “High Octane Collection”. Part of the set is a “Fury Road ‘Black and Chrome’ Edition—The surreal black and white film version of Fury Road of the brilliant George Miller.” “Black and Chrome” is what the edition was referred to last year, so this seems legit.
That’s the good news. The bad news is A) as of now, this is just a German release and B) Warner Bros. Home Video has yet to comment on it, so whether or not the entire world will be able to enjoy this version in the near future is still up in the air.
