More Movie Taglines:
  • Max is back...and Tina's got him!

  • Hold out for Mad Max. This is his greatest adventure.
  • A lone warrior searching for his destiny...a tribe of lost children waiting for a hero...in a world battling to survive, they face a woman determined to rule.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Barter Town Crowd: Two men enter, one man leave!
  • Dr. Dealgood: Listen all! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now! Busted up, and everyone talking about hard rain! But we've learned, by the dust of them all... Bartertown learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens here! And it finishes here! Two men enter; one man leaves.
  • Dr. Dealgood: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... Dyin' time's here.
  • Aunty Entity: Welcome, to another edition of Thunderdome!
  • Max: Thunderdome. How do I get in there? Aunty Entity: That's easy. Pick a fight!
Movie Trivia:
  • The script called for Aunt Entity (Tina Turner) to drive a vehicle. All of the vehicles were built using manual transmissions, which Turner couldn't drive, so a car equipped with an automatic transmission had to be constructed.
  • One of the restaurants in the post-apocalyptic city is The Atomic Cafe, a reference to The Atomic Cafe (1982), a documentary about the Cold War, nuclear fear and propanganda films from the government.
  • When introducing Max to the Thunderdome crowd, Dr. Dealgood calls him "The Man with No Name". This is a reference to Clint Eastwood's character in Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns", particularly Per un pugno di dollari (1964), where his character also enters a town as a drifter and plays the two ruling factions against each other for profit.
  • The character of "Captain Walker", the absent father-figure/savior/pilot, is clearly a reference to "Captain Walker" from the film Tommy (1975). Also, the presence of Tina Turner (who protrayed the "Acid Queen" in "Tommy") strengthens the connections between the two movies.
  • Director/Co-Writer George Miller was given the rights to this and Mad Max 2 (1981) to get him to step aside as the director of Contact (1997).
