Easily one of our all-time favorite post-apocalyptic franchises ever is the original Mad Max series. (We have high hopes for next years reboot, too!) Poster Posse member Brian Taylor, AKA “Candykiller,“ has just released a brilliant new print for the 1981 classic: “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.”
The franchise launched the career of American actor Mel Gibson to super star level and has become a pop culture favorite for fans all over the globe. Gibson’s portrays this loner, vagabond character perfectly, and director George Miller delivered a visual smorgashboard that has endured the 35 years since the first film was released in 1979.
Brian’s print centers on the film's main characters, Gibson as as “Max Rockatansky,” (quite possibly the BEST name ever given to a character in film to this day), Bruce Spence as “The Gyro Captain,” and Kjell Nilsson as “The Humungus.” Getting equal time in the spotlight is Max’s super bad-ass vehicle, the black supercharged V-8 Pursuit Special. The color palette of the print fits the film perfectly, highlighting the harsh, dry environment the film takes place in.
