There’s something gloriously insane about Mad Max and the world he lives in. Hell, being mentally unbalanced is part of his name, as the Road Warrior is forced to survive in a world that has long since kissed sanity goodbye. It’s also the kind of film franchise that is just begging for viewers to toss rational thinking and environmetally sound ideas out the window, as the latest trailer for the Tom Hardy-starring movie is all kinds of crazy.
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
Mad Max also stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, and Hugh Keays-Byrne. And a truckload of groovy drugs for director George Miller, I’d imagine.
