Mad Max All Night Movie Screening
An all-night Mad Max movie marathon in Ikebukuro. For ¥3,000 you can settle down to watch eight hours of post-apocalyptic dystopian action at the brilliantly named Mad Explosion 1, 2, 4, 4! Mad Max – Death All Night! The Australian franchise was co-created and directed by George Miller, who completed the first movie in 1979. Mad Max 2 (1981) and 2015’s well received reboot, Fury Road, starring Tom Hardy, are acknowledged by many as some of the best action films ever made. Getting the rights to show Beyond Thunderdome (1985) apparently hit a dead end, so the organisers have opted for showing Fury Road twice (hence the “1, 2, 4, 4!“) in both the regular and special Black & Chrome edition. Even with the third movie absent, this night is probably more than enough Mad Max to keep fans wide awake.
