Back in July, news broke that the Oscar-winning blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road would getting its own black-and-white cut, and now, it's finally available to stream online.
The new monochromatic edition appeared on Amazon earlier this week, and it will be available on DVD in the US on December 6, just in time for the holidays.
Last year, director George Miller told Slashfilm that he actually prefers the black-and-white version:
One thing I've noticed is that the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There's only two ways to go, make them black and white—the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now. The other version is to really go all-out on the colour. The usual teal and orange thing? That's all the colours we had to work with. The desert's orange and the sky is teal, and we either could de-saturate it, or crank it up, to differentiate the movie. Plus, it can get really tiring watching this dull, de-saturated colour, unless you go all the way out and make it black and white.
You can stream the gorgeous monochromatic version in its entirety here.
