While we know Tom Hardy is replacing Mel Gibson in the title role, the plot details of the sorta sequel/sorta reboot are scant. There’s a convoy, a band of motorised marauders, a bunch of weird characters (including original Mad Max villain Hugh Keays-Byrne!) and Charlize Theron as the impressively monikered Imperator Furiosa. We also know there’ll be a dearth of dialogue (Hardy has a grand total of 16 lines) and that the vast majority of the stunts and effects are practical.
Oh, we also now it looks amazing. Check it out:
