Only the mad survive! Aside from Interstellar, the best footage I've seen at Comic-Con 2014 (so far) was for George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. This movie has been in the works for a very long time, and will finally be out in theaters next summer (May 2015). The footage shows an epic scope and some incredible, amazing, unbelievable (and supposedly practical) vehicle/car action. One scene shows them driving into a massive sandstorm, with tornadoes that tear some of the cars apart before they burst into flames. It looks insane, but insane in every good way possible. A new set of character posters have debuted - see them below.
Before we get into more of the artwork, I have to say - this is not just hype, Mad Max: Fury Road looks like an extraordinary action movie. Just take a look at some of these tweets from colleagues at the Comic-Con Hall H panel talking about how insane it looks. These are proof that many, many people felt the same as me about the footage - that this movie is going to be fucking awesome and I cannot wait to see it next summer.
Mad Max looks INSANE. Like the best kind of INSANE. As if a meth lab exploded all over a hot rod flick. #sdcc

FURY ROAD footage was massive. Highlight was car chase into a massive dust tornado w/ Max strapped to the hood of a car as hostage #SDCC

Here are the four new character posters giving everyone a better look at the style of Mad Max: Fury Road. Notice the Tom Hardy shot is upside-down, and the last one is the guy who plays Toecutter in the original.

Mad Max: Fury Road is a reboot of the adventure franchise that began with Mad Max in 1979, starring Mel Gibson. George Miller, the director of the original film and its sequel, is back behind the camera, working from a script he co-wrote with first-time writer Nick Lathouris. Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max (Tom Hardy) 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. Meanwhile, Furiosa (Charlize Theron) is a woman of action who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and more star in the film Warner Bros. Pictures releases on May 15th, 2015. Interested?
