Mad Max: Fury Road is mowing down any hint of negative press and gathering faithful converts from all avenues of life with its visceral brand of artful violence.  It was a foregone conclusion that a sequel would be spawned after the rabid response to George Miller's cavalcade of motorized mayhem, but until now, its official name was mostly unknown.  Years ago, when the Mad Max reboot was gathering steam, Miller had suggested that a second film might be named Mad Max: Furiosa, but that seems to have been left in the dust with the 70-year-old's recent announcement. 

According to a new podcast interview with The Q&A With Jeff Goldsmith, Miller announced that the next Mad Max movie would be called Mad Max: The Wasteland.  Actor Tom Hardy will certainly return to star in the sequel as his contract binds him to three more movies, but it's unclear as to whether Charlize Theron will be back for another ride.  No plot details have emerged yet but tell us what you think the newly branded follow-up might refer to and if The Wasteland suits its feverish, high-octane style.
