Reboots are reboots are reboots, but let’s talk about what we really want from a Mad Max reboot.
1. Max Rockatansky, played by a totally committed actor who’s not unafraid to go off the rails.
2. A dirty, dystopian landscape, with lots of mind-blowing, badass vehicles, weapons and tools.
3. Crazy, terrifyingly maniacal bad guys, and a few kickass survivors to root for.
4. Chases, Stunts, Fire and Explosions and General Mayhem.
Now let’s see what writer/director George Miller (who’s written and directed all the Mad Max films) has given us in this new Mad Max: Fury Road trailer:
Tom Hardy — balls out committed — check.
Madmen, survivors, cool vehicles, chases, fire, explosions, landscape…all checks.
Plus, this thing looks shitballsbananacrazy (and way better than anyone imagined)! I am all the frakking way in.
Max Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, Nathan Jones and Riley Keough. It will presumably blow a hole through your local theater May 15, 2015.
