Some friends and I went to see Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 70 mm on the big screen last night. Mel Gibson didn’t drive the last of the V-8 Interceptors to the Aero, but someone did.
The movie was great, of course, and everyone was happy to see that Vernon Wells was on hand to chat and answer questions afterward.
He talked about his mohawk, his assless chaps, the silver boomerang breaking his elbow, the blonde kid on the back of his motorcycle, the feral child, his ass and how there were only six stuntmen (plus the stunt leader) for the entire shoot.
Brian, otherwise known as Captain Buzzkill, noted that I should’ve brought Wage along so I could’ve gotten a picture of Wez and Wage. Sigh.
