As you all probably know, Mad Max: Fury Road had a smashing debut this weekend, earning $45.45 million in America and $109.5m worldwide in its first few days of release. I made a reference offhand in my box office reports that I wasn’t necessarily super thrilled at the film’s success, despite considering George Miller’s sequel to be the best film of the year and one of the great all-time action pictures. I’ll go into that a little bit towards the end of this piece. However, there are a few “good” lessons that can be taken from the somewhat expected success of the unexpectedly terrific Mad Max: Fury Road. Moreover, if I cannot get excited about a film as good as Mad Max: Fury Road doing as well as it did this weekend, then what the hell am I doing here? With that in mind, here are five explicitly positive lessons that could hopefully be taken from the successful debut of Mad Max: Fury Road. Here’s hoping Hollywood takes heed.
