“Mad” Max Rockatansky’s world of fire and blood returns to the big screen next summer. After debuting almost 10 minutes of footage from Mad Max: Fury Road during the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation at Comic-Con, the first trailer has arrived. The latest entry in the Mad Max franchise is manic, crazy, and better looking than anything we could have hoped for. Watch the trailer after the break.
Reviving his creation to a new generation of moviegoers, George Miller has transcended his franchise beyond belief. I haven’t even seen the movie yet and I just feel that Mad Max: Fury Road will have so much energy and incredible production design just based on this trailer alone.
Tom Hardy captures the role of Mad Max well, but it’s Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa and Hugh Keays-Byrne as Immortan Joe that really steal my attention. All of the costumes, characters, and insane vehicles we see here have rebuilt this world for the epic blockbuster age. The music in this trailer sets up a intense tone, closely imitating one of those fan made sound effect remixes.
We don’t know much about the plot based on this long teaser trailer, which I’m OK with. And even though George Miller has been the writer-director for Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet, and Happy Feet Two, I trust that he knows the world of Mad Max better than anyone and the trailer is proof in and of itself.

Here is the official plot synopsis for Mad Max: Fury Road, courtesy of Warner Bros.:
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.
Written and directed by George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Zoe Kravitz, Abbey Lee Kershaw, and Kennedy Miller Mitchell.
Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
