You’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road, now it’s time to take a second look at Easter eggs you might not have noticed on a first watch.
It’s been a long journey for the Road Warrior. In fact, the release of the fourth Mad Max installment marks over 30 years since we last saw him. But, despite three whole decades, there are a number of things that haven’t changed. Granted, Max himself has changed his entire face (give a warm welcome to Tom Hardy, everybody), but there’s enough familiarity from past Mad Max films to keep you comfortable.
Director George Miller made sure to include a number of Easter eggs referencing the past films to please long time fans. Some references are glaringly obvious, like the infamous Interceptor, and other tricked-out vehicles. Others, though, are a little trickier to spot.
Blink and you’ll miss a few of them, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. From costume choices to props, we’ve found Easter eggs from all three previous Mad Max films. Unfortunately, though, no Mel Gibson cameo or mention could be found.
How many references did you catch in Fury Road? Take a look below and see if there’s anything you missed!

You’ll see it with new eyes and a deeper perspective. Pick out some of the references mentioned above, and try and find some yourself! You never know what else you might catch.
