One of the most talked-about moments from Comic-Con was the first look at George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, which finds Miller revisiting the world of his cult classic Mad Max trilogy, with Tom Hardy taking over the iconic role made famous by Mel Gibson. By all accounts, the footage screened in Hall H was jaw-droppingly awesome, and a truncated version has now appeared online, courtesy of Warner Bros. Check out the first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road right here.
During the panel, Miller described his vision of the film as “a Western on wheels,” and it seems like that’s precisely was he’s given us. “I love chase movies; they’re the purest form of cinema. I wanted to make one long extended chase, and see what we could pick up about the characters on the way.”
Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, Mad Max: Fury Road opens on May 15, 2015. Check out four new character posters below.
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.
