Comic Con has been wild, even for those of us that weren’t able to attend. So many spectacular announcements have been made, and some of the trailers have blown me away. Mad Max: Fury Road is a title that was announced forever ago, and that I have been anxiously awaiting ever since. The news is slowly trickling in. Most of the time it’s just a scan from a magazine interview, or a poster, but thanks to Comic Con, we now have the very first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road. I’ve gotta say, this trailer has done for me, exactly what I hoped it would do. It has given me a glimpse of the style and tone of the film, and now that I have a taste for what they’re doing with this franchise, the day of release couldn’t possibly come soon enough. I want this movie inside of me right now. Until that day happens, check out the trailer below, and wait a few minutes before standing up. Your nerd-on will be mighty.
Synopsis From Comingsoon.net:
Plot Summary: “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.
