Ok... Just give me a second to compose myself. I'm still bewildered by the insanity that is the new (and final) Mad Max: Fury Road trailer. Holy sh*t is what comes to mind. Simply and utterly bonkers is how I'd describe it. Completely bonkers. What a day. What a lovely day.
Check out the trailer below:
Three trailers have already released for the film and each and every single one of them was awesome. Today, Warner Bros. have debuted the final trailer for the reboot/sequel and it is just as chaotic and insane, if not more so, than all the reveals prior. We certainly know where the 'mad' in Mad Max comes from. This trailer is f*cking ridiculous, that's for sure. There's a reason this is one of my most anticipated films of the year and this just shows why.
We've seen quite a bit of footage and action already but this reveal is really here to give us a better idea of the actual plot. We find out that Charlize Theron's Furiousa is at the heart of the big massive road battle that Fury Road will revolve around. It looks like a chaotic, wonderful and just hugely fun film! If anything, we know that no film this year will beat this in ingenuity and craziness. It's as if they got The Joker to write and direct this film.
Replacing Mel Gibson - from the original films - as our eponymous lead, Max Rockatanaky, is none other than Tom Hardy. Having starred in Locke, The Drop and even season 2 of Peaky Blinders, 2014 was a busy year for the actor and things are only going to get busier this year. He's a great and remarkably talented actor and I'm intrigued in seeing what he brings to Fury Road.
With Mad Max 1, 2 and Beyond Thunderdome helmer George Miller returning to the director's chair for this and starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough and more, Mad Max: Fury Road will explode into cinemas on May 15th, 2015.
Here's the film's official synopsis:
The post-apocalyptic action film is 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 of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by TOM HARDY from The Dark Knight Rises), 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 (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), 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.
