San Diego Comic Con is the hub of all things nerdy, and their latest announcement meant the release of the Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer, along with the character Posters you see below.
I am super excited for this movie. It’s been around 30 years since George Miller directed the first Mad Max, which starred Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky. The upcoming film will be the fourth in the franchise, with Max being played by Tom Hardy, and he looks awesome – I can’t be the only person looking forward to seeing what Hardy looks like with long hair?
The trailer introduces max, then follows that up with a massive desert car chase led by Nux, a mutant boy who’s played by Nicholas Hoult. It reminds me of an episode of whacky races, but far more epic and 100 percent more brutal. Explosions, blood, an abundance of spikes, and a handful of models – what more do you need?
According to Miller, Imperator Furiosa, who is played by Charlize Theron, is the boss of a war rig that’s moving across the wasteland – presumably what we saw in the trailer. It looks like Max has no choice but to join the convoy.
The four character posters depict Tom Hardy as Max, Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, Nicholas Hoult as Nux, and Hugh Keays-Byrne. The movie has a release date of 15th May 2015.
