Furiosa release date: When is the Mad Max prequel coming to theaters and streaming?

The road ahead of us isn't a long one.

After absorbing the first look at Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, many diehard fans and casual moviegoers are wondering about all the international release dates and when it may hit streaming after its theatrical run. We have done some digging and collected everything we know so far here.

When is the Furiosa release date if I want to see it in theaters?

The Mad Max: Fury Road prequel was announced to hit US cinemas on May 24, 2024, almost one year later than its original planned release date of June 23, 2023. Australia, meanwhile, will get it one day earlier, May 23. Fitting, considering it was shot in the country back in 2022.

The release dates for other international territories remain unclear, as big tentpoles can move either forward or back in certain countries because of holidays, strategic positioning, or simple distribution adjustments. However, we can say that Warner Bros. Pictures' movies don't stray too far from the US release dates most of the time.

When is Furiosa coming to streaming?

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is fully expected to hit Max (Warner Bros. Discovery's streaming platform) a few months after it ends its theatrical run. Major releases on this streamer have been harder to predict versus Disney+ and other services, as they're heavily dependent on the box office performance of each movie. With Mad Max: Fury Road gradually earning the "modern masterpiece" status, expectations surrounding Furiosa are high, so we could be looking at a long and healthy theatrical run if the reviews are notable enough.

We can try to predict a potential streaming release date on Max using some of 2023's tentpole releases from Warner Bros. For example, Blue Beetle crashed and burned at the box office, and hit Max on November 17, three months after its theatrical debut. Meg 2: The Trench fared much better in cinemas, but its release on Max happened on September 29, not even two months after its early August debut. As for Barbie, the highest-grossing movie of the year and a huge win for Warner, it's arriving on Max on December 15, almost five full months after it painted cinemas everywhere pink.

The head-scratcher here is Meg 2's super fast jump into Max despite a strong theatrical and digital performance, as Blue Beetle's gap can be explained with a progressive domestic release that prioritizes rent and buy options over streaming to salvage the situation. With how finicky Warner Bros. Discovery is about theatrical performances and distribution, Furiosa could either follow a standard-ish three-month window or surprise everyone with a faster incursion into streaming. Given its more limited appeal, an anomalous Barbie scenario isn't likely.
