The Empire edition summed up the first results of the development of cinematography in the XXI century. The world famous film magazine has published a list of the best films from the past 20 years. The rating was headed by the film "Mad Max: Fury Road".|
George Miller's post-apocalyptic action game went through all the circles of the production hell. Filming could start at the beginning of the 2000s: first, the September 11 attacks interfered with the work, and then the military conflict in Iraq. As a result, the film lost Mel Gibson, who played Max in the previous parts of the franchise.
In 2010, Miller finally received funding and invited Tom Hardy for the lead role. It seemed that the director had caught his luck by the tail, but as soon as the action team arrived in the Australian desert, torrential rains began there for the first time in 15 years. The film crew was out of work for eight long months. George had no choice but to look for new locations and relocate to Namibia.
The grueling filming lasted several months. Already at the stage of editing, it was revealed that many scenes needed processing. Miller had to wait for the cast to finish work on other films. Filming went on for about a month and cost the studio a pretty penny. Despite huge production problems, Fury Road was a success. The two-hour movie ride has grossed over $ 378 million and has won two hundred awards, including six Academy Awards.
On the second line of the ranking is the first part of Peter Jackson's trilogy about Middle-earth - "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring". Third place went to "The Dark Knight" by Christopher Nolan.
