First Look: Tom Hardy & Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'
We've been waiting a long time to see Mad Max: Fury Road, a reboot of the post-apocalyptic adventure hero that Mel Gibson played so many years ago. It's been years since the film started shooting, and the project has been kept under tight wraps, but with the film set for release next summer, the hype machine has finally kicked off with a first good look at Tom Hardy in the title lead role, along with Charlize Theron, sporting a shaved head and a bionic arm. On the film, director George Miller says, "I wanted to tell a linear story–a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes. In this crucible of very intense action, the characters are revealed.” We can't wait to see more sometime soon. Look below!
Here's our first look at George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road from Entertainment Weekly:
And here's a batch of first look photos from EW as well (a trailer should come soon):
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?

Um who of the cast is awful? The 2 headliners are Amazingly talented actors.
Brian Sleider on Jun 25, 2014
Indeed. Plus, since the casting was super important in the first two... oh... wait...

I read the test footage was amazing and I love the cast... I'm amped for this one here.

Oooh, I forgot about this beauty. Hope it's gritty and raw. I'm upset that Snowpiercer is limited release only, so we who apparently live in the Stone Age will have to wait.

Aw shit. I need Rhona Mitra in this.

The photos look as though it is combining the stories of both The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome into one reboot movie. It has my interest at least, which is something most reboot movies don't do for me.

My thoughts exactly! It has a touch of Thunderdome to it and a hell of a lot of Road Warrior. I'm having mixed feelings about this...

I've got a very good feeling about this one.

Poor Poor Hollywood , Nobody has new ideas . And they expect IMAX and sci-fi toys to save them in these reboots of OLD ideas .. it'll make money I guess ; Some still only go to movies for car crashes and explosions ..toss in a little sex and a LOT of death and you have your basic 500-theatre Feature film ... I'll wait for it to get to HBO ...

Love the makeup on Charlize (or lack thereof), she's looking quite the badass. Looks good so far!
