Australian showbiz legend Bert Newton was one of the first character actors cast by George Miller when the movie was to be filmed in Broken Hill, New South Wales, the original location for The Road Warrior (1981), a.k.a. The Road Warrior. Unfortunately, rainfall had completely changed the desert landscape, and years later the decision was made to move the production to Namibia. It was then, in mid 2012, that Bert Newton decided to drop out of the production, going on to appear as Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Australian stage revival of "Annie". See more »

Rumbling and moving musical score fitting to action by Junkie XL . Special and weird futuristic atmosphere created by cameraman John Seale who reflects splendidly the barren outdoors . According to this cameraman the cinematography would be as colorful as possible in order to differentiate the film from other post-apocalyptic movies, which typically have bleak de-saturated colors . Spectacular and impressive production design, the art direction is as beautiful as posible ; that's why the filmmaker Miller reasoned that people living in the post-apocalypse would try to find whatever scraps of beauty they could in their meager environment .
