A surprising celebrity consultant ensures that Mad Max: Fury Road won’t be your typical testosterone-drive action spectacle.
In fact, Mad Max director George Miller enlisted the help of activist, feminist icon, and Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler in order to ensure that Fury Road wasn’t just another story about helpless female victims; it’s a story about empowered survivors.
Perhaps George Miller and company knew that with today’s audiences being more sensitive to these issues than past audiences have been, they needed to address these topics in ways that rang true and not contrived. But hardcore fans of the original trilogy’s element of red-blooded machismo probably shouldn’t worry too much. From the looks of the trailers so far, all things indicate that this Mad Max will be full of fire and blood.
