9. 350 thousand Australian dollars


This amount was the budget the first film in the franchise. Many juggling had to come up to take forward the film, in fact Jon Dowding, the art director, confessed that he had to borrow the ads we see in the scene Jessie will buy ice cream, (he says the back).

8. Mel Gibson


In the first trilogy we see a very young Gibson as an actor, said he was not the cast to accompany his friend Steve Bisley, who plays Goose. Legend also has it days before Gibson had a fight in a bar and that it liked to cast keepers. What it is confirmed by Miller, it is that when I saw the scene knew he had found his hero.

5. Actresses

If there is a scene that fascinates remember me is to Tina Turner as Aunty Entity, the surprise comes from knowing that for the role were considered Jane Fonda and Lindsay Wagner but Miller saw on television Tina talking about his desire to act , so in front wrote the character thinking about it. Also, the role of Max’s wife was for Rosie Bailey, however, because of an accident she had to give way to Joanne Samuel.

With all the action scenes including the trilogy needed a team of stunts, however Beyond Thunderdome Mel Gibson did all the stunts.

2. x10


If for the first film’s budget was 350 thousand dollars Australians, the second featured 10 times that figure. Beyond Thunderdome he counted for 12 million Australian dollars. However, already in the XXI st century, with a new trilogy, Fury Road had a budget of USD 150 million.
