Mad Max: Fury Road SDCC FootageJuly 28th, 2014
Mad Max: Fury Road looks to be an over-the-top reboot of the classic Mel Gibson post-apocalyptic films … and we like it. Coming in as the fourth film in the Mad Max series, the story takes place between the first Mad Max and Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. It’s being produced and directed by none other than George Miller, who directed the first three Mad Max films.
No word yet on when it will be released, but the IMDB site currently indicates a May 15, 2015 release date.
Here’s a bit more of the film’s description:
Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.
And… Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
