‘Furiosa’s Scene-Stealing Warlord Reveals New Details About the Mad Max Prequel

Outside the gates of Gastown, the fearsome Dementus turns to his horde of followers, singles one rider out among hundreds, and makes a fearsome demand to him. “I only answer to the Octoboss,” the man answers defiantly.

This small exchange reveals a surprising amount about the world the Wasteland — typical of the way that George Miller’s Mad Max saga tends to layer in detail so subtly you might not even notice it. Is Dementus (played with villainous glee by Chris Hemsworth) the formidable warlord we assumed? Or is there dissent among his ranks? Can he lead at all? And, perhaps most importantly, what’s the deal with the Octoboss?

Thankfully, we can answer at least one of those questions. After sending out a call across the Wasteland (an email to his manager), Inverse got in touch with the Octoboss himself (Australian actor Goran D. Kleut), who happily answered our probing queries about his character in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

The Greatest Indiana Jones Mystery Skirts Scientific Fact

Next to Star Wars, perhaps no film series of the last 50 years has been as influential on genre cinema as Indiana Jones. If Star Wars set a path for science fiction and fantasy to follow, Indiana Jones gave a blueprint for adventure films. And while no one has to tell you where “No, I am your father” came from, you also probably don’t need to be told twice where “Why did it have to be snakes?” came from, either.

Beyond iconic lines and daring scenes etched into our imagination, there are more subtly influential parts. Maybe that’s where you found out about the Ark of the Covenant or the Holy Grail. And notably, the end of a couple of the Indiana Jones films — and some of the novels, and a couple video games — involves a mysterious area called Hangar 51. In a month where we’re celebrating the anniversaries of both Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade, Inverse takes a look back at the one of the franchise’s most mysterious inventions — and the science behind it.
