George Miller’s latest chapter in the Road Warrior saga is shaping up to be the most insane installment to date, if this hot off the presses international trailer for Mad Mad: Fury Road is anything to go by.
Though it contains much of the same footage that we’re already seen in previous sizzle reels, there’s no doubting the sheer amount of chaos on display here, as Tom Hardy’s grizzled protagonist rubs up some of the Wasteland’s most foreboding inhabitants the wrong way. Retaining the lone wolf mentality of previous films in the franchise, Fury Road will see Max become swept up in a group of bandits fleeing a tyrannical warlord known only as Immortan Joe.
With no choice in the matter, he must side with the ragtag crew in order to take down the marauding leader, and while it may not be a plot for the ages, if anything, Fury Road could prove to be the most stylish tentpole movies of the year.
Tom Hardy will stalk the wasteland for better or worse when Mad Max: Fury Road blasts into theaters on May 15 here in the States. Rounding out the cast are Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, and Hugh Keays-Byrne.
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.
