A Mad Max sequel/reboot has been in the works practically since the inception of this site seven years ago, and you could once count me among the people staunchly indifferent to such a thing. There have already been a hundred Mad Max ripoffs and director George Miller’s post-Mad Max output (‘Lorenzo’s Oil,’ ‘Babe: Pig In The City’) hasn’t exactly screamed “I need to make a sequel!”
That said, the trailer for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Zoe Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is here, and damned if it doesn’t look pretty badass. There really isn’t much to say about it other than it looks cool. I guess it’s true that it isn’t that hard to make good post-apocalyptic car porn. It’s dirt, cars, and explosions, I don’t know how you’ve been screwing this up so badly.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ opens May 15th, 2015
