I was wondering why they didn’t show a trailer for George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” during Comic Con, and as it turns out, they did, and you can see it for yourself below. It is quite, yes, epic, and ol Max sure looks like he needs some help. Say, from a chick with a metal hand, per instance. Yikes. Life is tough in the wastelands, I guess, when even our tough-as-nails hero can get strung up like some wild hog.
I also like how they gave Mad long hair in the beginning ala his ’80s “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” days. Nice.
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, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Max runs for it next year, May 15, 2015.
