Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) film just started in Japan theaters on June 20. The Japanese title is "Mad Max Ikari no DEATH ROAD (マッドマックス 怒りのデス・ロード)".
You might not know that when a movie from Hollywood launched in Japan, it has always been adjusted to promote in Japanese style unlike anywhere else such as These movie poster Japanese ver.
These characters are designed by Maeda Mahiro, one of the most prominent Japanese anime creators.
I think it's a good idea for promoting the action movie in this anime land because Anime is everywhere in Japan. Japanese always see anime object at least once a day.
Moreover, there are a lot of famous artists/voice actors for Mad Max: Fury Road Japanese version, such as Akira (from Exile all-male J-Pop group), Nakamura Yuichi (Gray in Fairy Tail anime series), and Takahashi Chiaki (Miura Azusa in IdolM@ster). Akira role as Max Rockatansky the protagonist.
