Here’s the first official trailer for George Miller’s forthcoming Mad Max reboot: Mad Max: Fury Road.
Yes the lead character has been re-cast with Tom Hardy taking over the Interceptor hot seat, but apart from that this has the Road Warriror stamped all over it. I’ve waited a long time for another Mad Max movie and judging what’s on offer through the trailer, it looks like the wait was worth it.
The plot of Fury Road rattles along like so:
An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and mostly 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.
Mad Max: Fury Road is set for release in May 2015.
