Fury Road Minute 3 - The one who runs

FuryRoad-Banner003.jpg

A band of War Boys roar onto the screen, hot on Max’s heels. Despite his speed, Max is quickly surrounded and a well placed explosive flips the interceptor, sending it rolling through the dirt. As it slides to a stop, Max emerges, dazed from the assault, his mind racing with thoughts of a child run down by a wasteland war party.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 102 - Him that came the salvage

BeyondThunderdome-Banner102.jpg

Savannah sits before the assembled crowd, holding a newborn child in her arms, as she tells them of the journey that brought them to this point in their history. As the scene shifts to a shot of the city, great signal fires can be seen in the buildings, as a way to beckon wanderers in from the wasteland, but as is also seen, there is one wanderer in particular who still walks the wastes. We can only assume their identity as the movie fades to black.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 101 - I's looking behind us now

BeyondThunderdome-Banner101.jpg

Savannah and the other lean out the side of the plane, taking in everything around them, amazed by the sheer scale of what still remains after nearly two decades of calamity. Savannah begins speaking in voice-over and the scene fades to some time later, as a group of the tribe who left gathers in a grand hall to listen to Savannah relay The Tell for that evening. The shot tracks along a group of people, children and adults, all sitting dutifully.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 100 - The land of tomorrow

BeyondThunderdome-Banner100.jpg

Jedediah diligently flies his Airturk with Mr. Skyfish hovering over his shoulder. The plane banks hard to the right and flies into a massive sandstorm. The thick clouds give way to a canyon, spanned by the remains of a massive bridge. At the canyon’s edge sits a mighty structure with great sweeping lines. Savannah and the others have reached their tomorrow-morrow land, the bombed out remains of Sydney. The buildings stand hollow and grey against the blowing sand.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 99 - Goodbye, soldier

BeyondThunderdome-Banner099.jpg

Aunty lets out a laugh and leaves Max to the desert, stopping only to look back at him and say goodbye before mounting her vehicle and driving away into the wasteland. Max rises to his feet and watches her go. He is left surrounded by wrecked vehicles and smoke as the scene wipes to the Airtruk, now far away from where they were. It flies along reliably, despite the massive sandstorm looming in the distance. The minute ends in the cockpit with Jedediah.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 98 - Ain't we a pair

BeyondThunderdome-Banner098.jpg

Despite having just jumped from a speeding vehicle, Max is able to lift himself enough to the see the plane fly overhead, and see one last glimpse of the people inside. Nearby, a charred and broken arm reaches from inside a wreckage towards a mask mounted to an iron bar, raising a defiant gesture before falling limp. As Max moves to stand, he is stopped by Aunty’s guards. She approaches him and smirks, saying “well, ain’t we a pair…”.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 97 - The way things are wont to go

BeyondThunderdome-Banner097.jpg

Max guns the engine and speeds ahead of the Airtruk, moving into position between it, and Aunty’s forces. She is unfazed by this development and as if sensing a challenge, Ironbar speeds ahead of the line, straight towards Max. But Max isn’t playing chicken today, and climbs out of the driver’s seat, leaping from the vehicle at the last moment, and sending his camel truck headlong into Ironbar. The plane leaves the ground and takes flight over the remaining vehicles.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 96 - There's not enough runway

BeyondThunderdome-Banner096.jpg

Noticing that Jedediah has cut the engine, Max climbs up the wing to ask him what’s going on. Jedediah is certain that there’s not enough runway between them and the might of Bartertown, but Max assures him that there will be. As Jedediah starts up the plane once more, Max reclaims his camel truck and the two begin rolling back the way they came. As they accelerate, Max maneuvers his vehicle alongside the plane and shares one last look with the people inside.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 95 - Cliffhanger

BeyondThunderdome-Banner095.jpg

As junk scatters across the runway, Aunty and her fleet thunder past Jedediah’s grotto, hot on the heels of the plane. Aunty is out in front, leading the charge, but another vehicle, driven by Ironbar, quickly comes from behind to lead the attack. However, the plane has come to the edge of a cliff, and without the necessary speed needed for flight, Jedediah is forced to stop and turn the plane around., which is fortunate for Scrooloose, who rejoins the party.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 94 - Ready for take off

BeyondThunderdome-Banner094.jpg

With the plane spinning up outside, Max insists that Jedediah’s plane is the one thing that may save his life that day. He understands well enough what Max is getting at, and soon He and the others run out of the dugout and board the plane as Jedediah Jr. begins to taxi away. They make it to the runway, but Jedediah tells Max that they’re overloaded, they won’t get off the ground. Undeterred, Max releases the cargo nets and drops Jedediah’s junk on the runway.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 93 - Which way did he go?

BeyondThunderdome-Banner093.jpg

Jedediah Jr. heads underground to escape his pursuers, ducking into a series of underground tunnels, but Max and the others are close behind. The boy finds his father lounging on a bed, reading a magazine, and tries to get him to leave in their plane, but he is ignored and as Jedediah Jr. runs off, Jedediah is soon joined by some visitors to his grotto. One of the visitors in particular seems to know Jedediah quite well, and begins to insist that today is his lucky day.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 92 - This is a stickup!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner092.jpg

Finally free of pursuers, Max has made his way to the front of the train and found Pig Killer impaled by Ironbar’s harpoon. Max makes quick work of the harpoon, pulling it from Pig Killer’s leg, but Savannah catches sight of an obstruction in the distance that forces him to slam on the brakes. As the train comes to a halt, Max and the others find themselves being held up by Jedediah Jr., but Aunty’s vehicles are close behind, sending everyone on the run once more.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 91 - A bridge too far

BeyondThunderdome-Banner091.jpg

It’s a desperate tug-of-war between Ironbar and the Children as both hold tight to Master. Max capitalizes on the opportunity and delivers a mighty kick to Ironbar’s face, sending him careening on a pipe out into open air. Dangling and helpless to rescue himself, Ironbar calls for backup, but the sudden appearance of a bridge leaves him up in the air. Ironbar fights to stay on the pipe, hurdling obstacles as they come, but ultimately Mr. Skyfish puts an end to him.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 90 - It’s alright, we’re going home!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner090.jpg

With the cabin no longer a safe place, Savannah begins helping the smaller children move onto the Generator Train’s engine, but Aunty is clever and shouts for Blackfinger to disconnect the caboose from the engine. Savannah hears the order and quickly grabs Master, causing Aunty to rescind her order. As Blackfinger holds the train together, Aunty pulls Master away from Savannah, a victory that is short lived as Max snatches Master and they jump to safety.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 89 - Gritty Gritty Bang Bang

BeyondThunderdome-Banner089.jpg

Scorched, soot-covered, and screaming, Ironbar clings to the front of the generator train having inexplicably survived a horrific explosion. Nearby, Max finds himself the target of a Bartertown vehicle intent on doing to him what He just did to Ironbar, but Max is a skilled driver and avoids the train. Up in the cabin, Master and the children are attacked by more guards, led personally by Aunty, but luckily for them, Savannah is nearby and ushers them outside.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 88 - Warning! Highly Flammable!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner088.jpg

Abandoning his hand-powered rail car, Ironbar leaps onto a vehicle equipped with a harpoon gun and quickly puts it to good use against Pig killer. Before He can get off another shot, Max is there to use his cowhide car to push Ironbar’s buggy in front of the generator train. The small buggy is no match for the speed of the train and though Ironbar tries to leap to safety, he quickly finds himself engulfed in a massive fireball as the buggy is completely demolished.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 84 - There ain't no plan

BeyondThunderdome-Banner084.jpg

Clear of Bartertown, Max, Master, Pig killer and the kids seem to be in the clear. With Underworld fading further and further into the distance Max takes a moment to ask Pig killer what their next move is going to be, a question for which there is no answer. Meanwhile, in the cabin at the back of the train, Master is attempting to pack several keepsakes into a bag. This task is thwarted by the children, who are intent on exploring this cabinet of curiosities.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 83 - We will rebuild!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner083.jpg

The terrified wastelanders press towards the exits, but Bartertown’s guards keep them in place as Aunty steps out onto a platform to address the people massing below.  She raises her hands to quiet them, and though explosions continue to erupt around her, Aunty is calm and determined, instructing those gathered to chase after Master and those that took Him from them. The crowd cheers and moments later Aunty leads a rolling armada out into the wasteland.
