While I don’t normally focus on the numbers, this one is fun for fans of Mad Max: Fury Road. According to Variety, the film’s debut on home video “easily topped” the sales charts debuting on Nielsen’s records for home video, and Blu-ray specifically, at number one. The former number one title, The Walking Dead: Season 5 fell to the number three slot with DreamWork Animation’s Home in the second position.
It’s safe to say the title’s performance is not mediocre.
Though not the biggest hit of the summer, Fury Road certainly seems to have struck a cord in the public consciousness with War Boy lingo slipping into speech and Charlize Theron‘s Furiosa becoming something of an icon. While director George Miller has already teased a fifth installment in the series, Mad Max: The Wasteland, financing is not a sure thing. Hopefully it’s performance on home video means Max will ride historic once again.
