Now you don't need me to tell you to go see Mad Max: Fury Road. I can imagine you've already been told by practically everyone you know (and their mothers) to go see George Miller's imaginative, kinetic and downright insane reboot of the apocalyptic Australian actioner.
Although Mad Max might not have beat Pitch Perfect 2 at the box office, it has certainly won over critics and audiences alike, with the film now benefiting from great grassroots word of mouth publicity.
Perhaps one of the greatest things about Max Max: Fury Road is the minute attention to detail in the vehicles, costumes and improvised weapons of the wasteland residents. All of this came together with Miller's direction to create an insane visual spectacle. Now a new book, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road, has just been released which shows how the movie achieved its iconic look. It's jam-packed with concept art for the reboot, and we've got a taster of it right here. Take a look at the pictures below:

Mad Max: Fury Road started life in a rather unusual way. Instead of developing a script or screenplay, Miller decided to storyboard the entire film, allowing the narrative of the film to develop through the action and art direction.
