The word on the web was that we, those of us not at Comic Con, were going to wait until this weekend to see MAD MAX: FURY ROAD trailer. That is not true. Warner Brothers has released the “Comic-Con First Look” trailer. Mania has located the UK trailer and attached it here as well. Warner Brothers has also released official new character art for the film. Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ Mad Max: Fury Road arrives May 15th, 2015. 

Press Release: From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

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: Fury Road”—the fourth in the franchise’s history—stars Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) in the title role, alongside Oscar winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”) as the Imperator, Furiosa. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max”, “Sleeping Beauty”) as Immortan Joe; and Nathan Jones (“Conan the Barbarian”) as Rictus Erectus.

Collectively known as The Wives, Zoë Kravitz (“Divergent”) plays Toast, Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”) is Capable, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) is Splendid. They are joined by supermodel Abbey Lee as The Dag and Courtney Eaton as Fragile, both of whom are makingtheir big screen debuts. Also featured in the movie are Josh Helman as Slit, Jennifer Hagan as Miss Giddy, and singer/songwriter/performer iOTA as Coma-Doof Warrior.

The cast is rounded out by well-known Australian actors John Howard and Richard Carter, supermodel Megan Gale, Angus Sampson, Joy Smithers, Gillian Jones, Melissa Jaffer and Melita Jurisic.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Miller (“Happy Feet”) is directing the film from a screenplay he wrote with Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris. Miller also produces the film, along with longtime producing partner, Oscar nominee Doug Mitchell (“Babe”, “Happy Feet”), and P.J. Voeten. Iain Smith, Graham Burke and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-winning director of photography John Seale (“The English Patient”); action unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris (“Australia”); editor Margaret Sixel (“Happy Feet”); production designer Colin Gibson (“Babe”); Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“A Room with a View”); and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt (“Knowing”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Kennedy Miller Mitchell production, a George Miller film, “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The film is scheduled for release on May 15, 2015 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

 This movie has been getting some bad press with the shifting release but it looks really good. Hope the movie lives up to the trailer.

I don't need to see any other trailers to know I am going to see this.

 Many pro football fans don't like the two weeks of hype preceding the Super Bowl.  They'd never be able to endure the two years (or more) of hype that some Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror and Comic Book movies get (Guardians of the Galaxy hasn't been released yet and all ready they are pitching the sequel that will be out in 3 years).  I liked it better in the pre-internet days when you found out about an upcoming film in a magazine article or when you saw the first trailer on television (or coming attractions in the movie theatre) and a month and a half later... viola... the movie was in the theatres.  How can any 2 hour movie live up to years of hype?  The answer is they can't but it doesn't matter because by the time it actually comes out we're all ready more excited about the next big movie that will be out in a year or two.

Anyway...only 8 more months before this comes out.

Looking that this trailer , already looks like  a remake of Mad Max 2 . I cant believe that He wipes out this car as well , without the car to Me isnt a movie . So here We are again with a trailer  and  People an Max this time tied on the front of a car or truck .The script is a  updated remake with Chalize Theron with a mechanical left hand . I can see if Gibson was asked to come back passed for a good reason .

Probably need to see more than just car crashes and crazy headgear... Better previews are coming for sure, but I'm stoked!

I guarantee you that Comic Con went nucking futs after they played this trailer - that looks bad-ass!

CalamityJohnson 7/29/2014 10:22:49 AM

definitely will see this. I remember when thunder dome got bad press too but it kicked ass. Car chases, explosions, crazy crashes, maddened libido-raged lunatics with crazy masks, dust-stained nitrous pumped cars/motorcycles/trucks/planes, and of course a brooding Mad Max - stir, mix, and voila! Fun popcorn summer flick.
