As thirty years separate Beyond Thunderdomeand Fury Road, respectively released in 1985 and 2015, “only” 9 years separate Fury Road > from its spin-off, Furiosa. If the delays between each film seemed to shorten, to the delight of fans of George Miller's post-apocalyptic saga, this relief could be short-lived.
