The climactic truck crash for the new Mad Max movie has finally been filmed. Somewhere in western Sydney, director George Miller and the cast led by Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron had to interrupt the shooting due to some heavy rain. "Smashing up a couple of big trucks, it had to be very, very, very precise. So we just had to wait for a clear day" Miller said in an interview. This location was chosen because it's "isolated and you can drive big vehicles very fast and crash them". A bit muddy but it proved to be suitable for an action-full finale once the weather went back to normal and a hovering media helicopter was out of sight. George Miller is the Oscar-winning director of the 3 previous Mad Max movies and both Happy Feet films. After a few obstacles before shooting for Mad Max: Fury Road started [such as the financial impact of the September 11th attacks and the rain that caused the desert to blossom at Broken Hill], it was finally shot in Namibia and South Africa. "It's been a really difficult movie. It's pretty constant action [on screen] but we've had superb stunts and safety crew. We've had no significant injuries. One of our top guys was doing a simple manoeuvre and just pulled a tendon on his biceps; that's one of the worst injuries we've had". This fourth movie from the Mad Max franchise centres on Max (Tom Hardy) caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. It is set shortly before the events of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.  But will we get a glimpse of the original Max, Mel Gibson? "It would have been nice somehow, but, no, it's not true" Miller said. Mad Max: Fury Road is scheduled to be released on May 15th, 2015.
