Doesn’t it seem like we’ve been hearing about this film for forever? Well, watching the trailer you kind of have to understand why. That’s a lot going on. It’s a great trailer too, showcasing some if it’s shocking, acrobatic visuals, some nice shots of our leads Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult and gives us a taste for the dangerous and painful atmosphere of the film while refusing to be a trailer that gives away every single thing that’s going to happen in the film.
Director George Miller seems to have mastered the post-apocalyptic mood and some of the shots of the expansive desert were enough to get me into the theater. The movie is released May 15th, 2015 and will hopefully be a great start to what looks to be a loaded blockbuster season.
Check out the trailer and official synopsis below and let us know what you thought of the trailer in the comments.
From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) stars in the title role in “Mad Max: Fury Road”—the fourth in the franchise’s history. Oscar winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”) stars as the Imperator, Furiosa. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max,” “Sleeping Beauty”) as Immortan Joe; and Nathan Jones (“Conan the Barbarian”) as Rictus Erectus. Collectively known as The Wives, Zoë Kravitz (“Divergent”) plays Toast, Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”) is Capable, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) is Splendid, and supermodel Abbey Lee is The Dag, and Courtney Eaton is Fragile. Also featured in the movie are Josh Helman as Slit, Jennifer Hagan as Miss Giddy, and singer/songwriter/performer iOTA as Coma-Doof Warrior.
