Seriously, how great does Mad Max: Fury Road look? The newest trailer for the franchise’s revival, unleashed on the world this spring, is utterly bonkers. Over-the-top apocalyptic action featuring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron and a cast of villains that looks like it’s straight out of Borderlands (wait, do you guys think Borderlands might have been partially inspired by the original Mad Max? Nah, probably not). Besides balls-to-the-wall action, the trailer gives us the slightest hint of a plot – Max (Hardy) helping Furiosa (Theron) cross the desert with freed captive women in tow and chased down by aforementioned bandits.
Oh yeah, Max waxes philosophical a bit about whether he or the bandits are the real crazy ones, but forget about that – did you see that flaming guitar thing?! This movie is pushing all the right buttons, man. Anyway, Mad Max: Fury Road, directed by George Miller and also starring Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Keays-Byrne, hits theaters May 15.
