Though he broke Batman’s back in The Dark Knight Rises as Bane, Tom Hardy admitted he was initially “daunted” upon entering director George Miller’s iconic, post-apocalyptic universe in Mad Max: Fury Road.
Charlize Theron is no stranger to fantastical, futuristic driven narratives (Prometheus), and now she stars in Mad Max: Fury Road as Imperator Furiosa, a leader of a group who bumps into the road warrior himself, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy).
It’s hard to imagine it’s been almost 30 years since Mel Gibson (and Tina Turner) graced the screen in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Director George Miller is back to revisit his fatalistic desert wasteland, this time with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road.
Mad Max: Fury Road is slated for a May 15, 2015 release, and the trailer officially debuted at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Check out the video and images below, and if you have any thoughts on Hardy taking over Mad Max or the return of the franchise (the first installment, Mad Max, came out in 1979), feel free to comment! I haven’t checked out Miller’s trilogy in years, but maybe it’s time to take one more ride with Mel Gibson’s Max before I see Hardy take over the reigns in May.
