The Mad Max franchise is a series of post-apocalyptic films directed by George Miller that follows the exploits of "Mad" Max Rockatansky, a former law enforcement officer who finds himself attempting to survive in a devastated future world where oil is a scarce resource. For the first three films, Max was portrayed by Mel Gibson, whose role in the film helped launch him into movie stardom. The exploits of Mad Max in the original trilogy involved seeking revenge for the deaths of his wife, son and a partner in the original film, then becomes a drifter-survivalist in the second film (also known as The Road Warrior) and concludes his adventures by trying to save a group of children in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. A rather obscure NES game, titled Mad Max, was also released in 1990 and a SEGA take on The Road Warrior was released as Outlander in 1992 because Warner Bros. abandoned the production shortly before the initial release. George Miller would return in 2015 with Mad Max: Fury Road, a new feature film relaunch directed by George Miller and starring Tom Hardy as Max.
