Mad Max: Fury Road Looks The Business

Mad MAx FRFollowing a rapturously-received presentation at San Diego Comic Con, the first trailer of the ridiculously-long-in-gestation Mad Max: Fury Road has been released and it’s a killer.

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:

Mad Max: Fury Road hits cinemas in 2015 – hopefully sooner rather than later.
