Watch Mad Max Movies in Order: A Streaming Guide to the Wasteland

Updated on

If you're looking for a UK streaming guide to the Mad Max franchise, we've got you covered. Here you can see where to watch every Mad Max movie on UK streaming services such as Disney+ Netflix and Prime Video. We'll also let you know if you can watch it for free on services like iPlayer and ITVX.

When George Miller made his directorial debut with Mad Max in 1979, he had no idea it would become known as one of the greatest action films of all time. The film brought audiences down under to a dystopian Australia where society has collapsed into tribal warfare and the remaining population are reduced to fighting for decimated resources in a desert wasteland. After the success of the first Mad Max, Miller went on to make two more instalments in the 1980s starring Mel Gibson before returning to the series 30 years later in 2015 with the critically acclaimed Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy as the classic character.

With a fifth instalment, Furiosa, on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to slap on your sand goggles and drive through the wasteland by watching the four previous Mad Max instalments in order of release. Check out our handy guide below to find out how to stream all the Mad Max movies in order.

In 1979, George Miller plucked the relatively unknown actor Mel Gibson out of obscurity and put him in the starring role of his daring original film as Max Rockatansky. The first film covered Max’s evolution from a rising Main Force Patrol officer to a bereft, lone drifter through the wasteland. 1981’s Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior continued Max’s story, picking up about three years later when Max finds himself helping a group of oil refinery workers trying to escape the station through a horde of murderous bikers. The third instalment, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, was released in 1985 and takes up Max's story some eighteen years later after he is exiled by settlement leader Aunty Entity and finds himself protecting a group of children who survived a crash in the desert.

After Miller hit pause on the series for some thirty years, he returned to the wasteland in 2015 with Mad Max: Fury Road, this time starring British actor Tom Hardy as the damaged but moral protagonist. Fury Road brought a new generation into the world of Mad Max and introduced us to the new character Furiosa, a renegade general trying to help five women escape the clutches of Immortan Joe. While writing the screenplay for Fury Road, Miller and screenwriters Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris fleshed out the side characters to an extent that they wound up with enough material for two more films.

The next entry on this list is 2024’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy as a young Furiosa and explores the character’s origin story. While details about the following film, Mad Max: The Wasteland are as scarce as water in the desert, it is likely we will see the return of Tom Hardy as Max in a continuation of his story.
