What a lovely day. A black-and-white cut of Mad Max: Fury Road has been mooted by George Miller ever since the film’s release last year, when he expressed his desire to release a decolourised version. Turns out Miller is a man of his word, because the ‘Black & Chrome’ edition, which he recently described as “the best version” of the movie, is now available to stream via Amazon.

Speaking to Indiewire back in September, the visionary Australian writer/director revealed that he’s wanted to put out a monochrome Mad Max as far back as 1981’s Road Warrior, the second film in the franchise, stating: “[There’s] something about black-and-white, the way it distills it, makes it a little bit more abstract. Something about losing some of the information of colour make it somehow more iconic.” Judging by the gorgeous trailer embedded below, we’re inclined to agree.
