Years in the making and maybe with another sequel in the wings, the fourth installment in Aussie director George Miller’s post-apocalyptic “Mad Max” series finally returns next year with a new, younger, and madder Max in Tom Hardy.
Until 2015, though, check out a new Comic Con poster for the movie. I think the whole “what a lovely day” tagline is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but I could be wrong. Aussie humor sometimes goes right over my head.
A apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Nathan Jones, Josh Helman, and Hugh Keays-Byrne.
Mad gets mad again next year, May 15, 2015.
