Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Sets Digital & Physical Release Dates Amid Box Office Struggles

Mad Max fans will soon be able to own the latest installment in the George Miller-helmed film franchise. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is heading to digital and physical media after a disappointing run in theaters.




Per ComingSoon.net, Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment has announced that Furiosa will be available to buy or rent on digital platforms beginning June 25, 2024. The Mad Max: Fury Road prequel will then be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on August 13, 2024. Warner Bros. also confirmed that a “Black & Chrome” edition of Furiosa will be released later this year, complete with an introduction from Miller. The director previously released a “Black & Chrome” version of Fury Road to critical acclaim. For those unfamiliar with the “Black & Chrome” editions, they present the Mad Max movies in visually stunning black-and-white instead of color.

Furiosa Makes the Original Mad Max Required Viewing

Furiosa is a brilliant prequel to Fury Road, but it’s even more impactful for fans of the original Mad Max and makes that film required viewing.


Also announced was a new Mad Max 4K UHD box set that will collect all five installmentsMad Max (1979), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), and Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. Like the Furiosa Black & Chrome edition, the 5-film Mad Max box set will be released later this year.


What Bonus Features Are Included?

The following special features will be available on both the 4K UHD and Blu-ray releases of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga:

  • Highway to Valhalla: In Pursuit of Furiosa
  • Stowaway to Nowhere

The 4K UHD release will also include three exclusive bonus features: Metal Beasts & Holy Motors, Darkest Angel: Anya Taylor-Joy as Furiosa, and Motorbike Messiah: Chris Hemsworth as Dementus.


“As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus,” reads the synopsis for Furiosa. “Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.” Anya Taylor-Joy headlines Furiosa as its title character, with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke appearing in supporting roles as warlord leader Dementus and Praetorian Jack, respectively.

Furiosa Makes the Case for Chris Hemsworth Playing DC’s Greatest Villain

Chris Hemsworth’s twisted and bloodthirsty Dementus in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga has the energy of a major batman villain from 2008’s The Dark Knight.


Furiosa is the fifth film in the Mad Max franchise and the first to not center around its title character, Max Rockatansky. Mel Gibson portrayed Max in the original trilogy, with Tom Hardy taking over the role for Fury Road. Jacob Tomuri, who was Hardy’s stunt double on Fury Road, makes a brief appearance as Max near the end of Furiosa.

Is Another Mad Max Movie in the Works?

Furiosa is supposed to be followed by a sixth Mad Max film, subtitled The Wasteland, which Miller previously shared would also be a prequel to Fury Road. However, with Furiosa failing to light up the box office, having earned just $160 million after three weeks in theaters, it is unknown if The Wasteland will move forward. Even Hardy doesn’t believe the project will receive the greenlight, stating during a recent interview with Forbes that he “[doesn’t] think [The Wasteland is] happening.”


Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga arrives on digital platforms on June 25, 2024, followed by a 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD release on August 13, 2024.
