Every single thing I’ve seen from Mad Max: Fury Road thus far tells me that it’s the sand and petrol fever dream of crazy awesomeness that we never knew we wanted, but now that we’ve seen it, we can’t do without! Unfortunately, we’ll have to survive a bit longer without dudes playing flamethrower-guitars!! as we’re still about a month away from the movie’s release.
Luckily though, we have a brand new Japanese trailer that shows off a whole bunch of new footage tide us over. Unluckily, it ditches all the weird wonderful musical cues all the other trailers had for an alternative rock soundtrack that feels like it came straight from an early 2000’s Jet Li movie.
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.
From now onwards, I will only ever say “Maddo Maxxu” like a Japanese guy.
Mad Max: Fury Road is written and directed by franchise creator George Miller and stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Nathan Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Courtney Eaton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. It is scheduled for release on May 15, 2015.
