George Miller and Anya Taylor-Joy will invite us in about a month to witness what may become the best action movie of the year

Nine years ago, Geroge Miller signed a cinematographic miracle that became, simply and simply, the best action film of the 21st century. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ continues to this day to be a masterpiece with a sense of rhythm, planning, narrative and a sense of spectacularity—among many other things—that have not been surpassed by any production. … Until now.

Stairway to Nowhere

It is clear that the only one capable of surpassing Miller is Miller himself, and everything indicates that ‘Furiosa’, the prequel to the 2015 title, is a strong candidate to, at least, face it. Expectations were already through the roof, but today they have grown a little more after the article published by Total Film in which producer Doug Mitchell has revealed one of the not so secret weapons of the tape.

This is none other than ‘Stairway to Nowhere’, the name that has been given to a 15-minute action scene in which 200 stuntmen worked and whose filming lasted a whopping 78 days. At the moment no specific details have been revealed about her, but Anya Taylor-Joy, star of ‘Furiosa’, has spoken about the process of creating her to give us long teeth.

“George and I had great conversations about why this particular sequence was so long. It’s because you see a repertoire of abilities throughout a battle, and that’s very important to understand how many resources Furiosa has, but also her determination. It’s the longest sequence any of us have ever shot. The day we finished, everyone got a ‘Stairway to Nowhere!’ wine.”

The most common of us mortals will have to wait for the next May 24 to see if it lives up to ‘Fury Road’, but those attending the Cannes Film Festival will be able to do so at its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on the 15th of the same month. Will they witness a new gem of modern action cinema?
