Director and co-writer George Miller
may have taken sixteen years or so to finally manifest his vision for a fourth installment in the epic desert Mad Max
saga, but the efforts have already been paying off. Tom Hardy
takes the lead handed down from previous franchise actor Mel Gibson who headlined the first three movies up to Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
(1986), and despite some of the significant hinderances the film endured, early test screenings are drawing some pretty positive buzz, particularly from this weekend’s events at San Diego Comic Con with the first four character posters
unveiled on Saturday.
On Sunday, Mad Max: Fury Road finally gained more ground with the release of the official SDCC teaser, and clearly this latest installation is ready to deliver the same good old fashioned road raging mayhem, with all the trimmings and then some!
“MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. 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.”
Hardy is joined by Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Nathan Jones. Mad Max: Fury Road releases on May 15, 2015. Peep the madness below!
