Furiosa Has A 15-Minute Action Sequence That Took Over Two Months To Shoot, And I Love The Nickname For This ‘Important’ Moment In Anya Taylor-Joy’s Mad Max Movie


Mad Max: Fury Road may have focused on Tom Hardy’s incarnation of the title character, but it was Charlize Theron’s Furiosa who stole the show in the 2015 movie, so much so that a prequel about the character was greenlit. We’re now just a month away from the Anya Taylor-Joy-led and George Miller-directed Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga arriving to the 2024 movies schedule, and another piece of intriguing piece of information has been shared about the project. There’s a 15-minute action sequence that took over two months to shoot, and I’m delighted by the nickname the cast and crew gave it.

While no specific details about what this Furiosa action sequence contains were shared by Total Film, producer Doug Mitchell informed the publication that it took 78 days and “close to 200 stunt people working on it daily.” This sequence was internally known as “Stairway to Nowhere,” and Anya Taylor-Joy said the following about why it’s a crucial moment in Curiosa’s journey:

George and I would have these big conversations about why this particular set-piece was so long. It’s because you see an accumulation of skills over the course of a battle, and that’s very important for understanding how resourceful Furiosa is, but also her grit. It’s the longest sequence any of us have ever shot. On the day we finished, everybody got a ‘Stairway To Nowhere’ wine!
