Mad Max to have Australian accent


I'm not sure why I'm writing this story, is it really news, does anyone actually care? Well apparently so.

Avalanche Studios has confirmed that Max in the upcoming Mad Max game will have an Australian accent. Apparently I missed the memo but there was a internet campaign going around in which fans complained after hearing an American accent in the game's teaser trailer.

Well it must have worked because Avalanche boss Christofer Sundberg said via Twitter: "Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame: It shall be so.

"We admire your loyalty. You have been heard."

Now if only we could erase Mel Gibson's dodgy Scottish accent from Braveheart. Petition anyone?

Also, if you pre-order, you get the "good old days" expansion pack for free. Where Mad Max gets drunk, drives erratically and throws anti-Semitic slurs at anyone he meets!

In my humble opinion, apart from a few notable exceptions, remakes are never as good as the originals.

im not a massive fan of the originals! I love mel Gibson I guess I didn't appreciate them cause I watched them in my younger days, but im a massive tom hardy fan so I have faith in this 1, but I do agree a lot of remakes are not as good! also looking forward to the new Riddick! prequel I believe?

It's opnly worth going back and taking a butchers if you're interested. But dated as they are, they are excellent films. well, the first two at least. The fact that Fury Road has the same director bodes well, but since Gibson turned down the role of Max, no-one knows what the story is doing! I would have prefered a new film in the universe if it had to be done, but this way they sell it as Mad Max and make a bucket of cash. You won't find a bigger Tom Hardy fan than me, but my fear isn't the acting calibre, it's the production itself. Riddick looks great, I believe it's a prequel but I'm not sure. Anything to erase the memory of that awful sequel.

Quite right too, looking forward to this more than the film, as TM quite rightly pointed out, remakes are almost always turds.

Aliens sits in a list similar to the good remakes one, one of the few sequels to surpass the original. It's a great flick. 3 and 4 are good, in their own way. 3 is better if you watch the directors cut and realise it was the guys first feature film,
