Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (also known as Mad Max 3: Beyond Thunderdome) is a 1985 Australian post-apocalyptic action adventure film directed by George Miller and George Ogilvie, distributed by Warner Bros., and written by George Miller and Terry Hayes.

In this sequel to Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Max (Mel Gibson) is exiled into the desert by the corrupt ruler of Bartertown, Aunty Entity (Tina Turner). Bartertown is a city on the edge of a desert that has managed to retain some technology if no civilisation. Max has his supplies stolen and must seek shelter there in a post apocalyptic world where all machines have begun to break down and barbarians hold what is left. He becomes involved in a power struggle in this third Mad Max film where he must first survive the town, survive the desert and then rescue the innocent children he has discovered.

The third instalment in the Mad Max film series and the last to feature Mel Gibson as Max, the series was revived in 2015 with the release of a sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, starring Tom Hardy in the title role.

Poster Collector

Simon, is a movie poster warrior who collects far too much. He also writes posts, articles, and guides for The Poster Collector. He also fancies himself a bit of a sports star in his hometown and spends too much time researching and finding new movie posters to acquire. If he’s not typing away at his keyboard or searching auctions, you can probably find him watching James Bond or Star Wars (or both).
