Mad Max: Fury Road

Just after learning that Mad Max: Fury Road had some reshoots to complete this November, we finally have a real first look photo from the film. The photo itself actually leaked last year by way of a picture of the same photo that was signed by Tom Hardy and Warner Bros. confirmed it was a real image from the set. We never posted because the quality was so low, but now a much higher resolution version of the picture has surfaced online via AICN showing a rugged Hardy in the middle of a desert, complete with a motorcycle. We're probably a long ways off from a trailer, but this should give fans a small taste of what's to come.

Here's the first photo from George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road from AICN:

Max Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road is directed by George Miller who co-write the script with Brendan McCarthy and Nick Lathouris. Miller describes the plot saying, "Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron). This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived." Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also star in the film which shot in Africa earlier this year, and is still expected to hit movie theaters sometime in 2014.

        That would mean the film is actually set before The Road Warrior, and NOT after Beyond Thunderdome, as he had discarded the car and the "Road Warrior" personality at the end of the third film.

          Yeh, Sadly unless some goofy time travel shit takes place or some other such non-sense we should not see it :(.

            Actually... there's a simple solution... Mad Max 4 is in fact an interquel set between the first and second film that explains how he goes from the city to the outback, and also how he transformed into the warrior we saw at the start of Mad Max 2. Ergo the Pursuit Special would obviously feature(and it will, Miller said it would back in 2009 when they started working on this film!). I can tell you that, it IS the plot. People saying it's going to be set after "Thunderdome" just haven't seen Thunderdome for a while. It can't be set after that, because he has finally regained his compassion at the end of that film and "retires" from being the "Road Warrior".

            Oh really? I thought I read somewhere it was after Thunderdome. This is excellent news. I feel that the gap between MM and RW has a lot of space for good stories. Seeing his transition from the angry cop into the road warrior will be fun to watch. I also think Hardy is a great choice for Max he has the intensity. Edit: not sure where I read it was after Thunderdome but you are correct. So We will see his car :D. Man I love Mad Max, heralds back to my child hood.

    Guess I'll have to watch those Mad Max films soon.
    • avconsumer2
      You really should. They kind of redefined the post-apocalyptic genre. (imo)
    Needs more eye patch.

    perfect casting! this will be great!
  • cobrazombie
    I hope this is a continuation and not another fucking reboot.

      Nope. It's a Mad Max adventure following the first movie, but either before or after Road Warrior (most likely before with him transitioning from vengeful mourning cop into the Road Warrior) and definitely confirmed pre-Thunderdome.
