Director George Miller was at Comic-Con 2014 to present the world’s first footage from Mad Max: Fury Road. If you couldn’t make it to San Diego, fear not, as the footage has now landed online, and you can watch it below. Miller described the film as a “western on wheels”, and the trailer is a suitably stripped back and lean affair. There’s dust, cars, explosions, and plenty of Tom Hardy brooding charismatically. Plus, you get a couple of brief glimpses of Charlize Theron’s badass Imperator Furiosa. Returning to the “familiar” terrain...

After over a decade of trying, director George Miller finally got to make another entry in the Mad Max series…almost two years ago. The film began shooting all the way back in the fall of 2012, but it wasn’t until this year’s Comic-Con that anyone saw a lick of footage from Mad Max: Fury Road. The action-packed trailer impressed those in Hall H, thanks to plenty of practical stunts, muscular action, and a promising glimpse of a return to one of the coolest worlds and character ever put to film. Max is now played by Tom Hardy, who is of course a beast of a man that’s well-suited for the character once played by Mel Gibson. Will Hardy’s performance reflect Gibson’s iconic work as Max or is Hardy and Miller going in a different direction? That’s a question director George Miller answered in the press conference for Mad Max: Fury Road, a »

It has been twenty-nine years since a Mad Max film has been released (Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome). Now, Australian director and franchise runner George Miller returns to the series, with a re-imagining of the first film, titled Mad Max: Fury Road. Mel Gibson has been replaced by Tom Hardy; the film also stars Charlize Theron. And, the first trailer for the film has been released. The film focuses on two rebels in the wasteland. Max (Hardy) has lost his family and he is looking for vengeance, while a troubled woman (Theron) believes that she can find truth and peace in her homeland. Both characters collide in a desert, which is teaming with blood-thirsty warriors and warlords. Mad Max: Fury Road will be released in theatres, May 15, 2015. Fans of post-apocalyptic action thrillers can preview the film below, with more story details to come this way soon. Release Date: May 15, 2015 (Theatrical). Director: George Miller. »

A trailer is important to the marketing of a film. It establishes tone, characterization, mis-en-scene, maybe offers some salient plot details and character relationships. It is often the first point of departure for those who are as yet undecided about a film; it is the place where fans are drawn in or pushed away. A bad trailer might not make or break a film, but it can give viewers pause about whether or not they open their wallets for this particular feature. So when I see a poorly made trailer for a film that I’m otherwise excited for, as the case in the most recent one for Mad Max: Fury Road, I am a trifle heartsick.
Mad Max: Fury Road features Tom Hardy as the titular angry man attempting to navigate a dystopian wasteland full of nasty people better known as “Australians.” He will eventually fall in with Furiosa »

On Saturday, Vulture, on the ground at Comic-Con, attended the Mad Max panel, where director George Miller described his upcoming prequel, Fury Road, as "practically a feature-length chase scene." The trailer, first shown at yesterday's panel, is now available online. Tom Hardy plays a young Max in a rough-and-tumble chase as a band of marauders try to capture Charlize Theron, who sports a shaved head and gritty eye makeup and her band of dewy women. As you might expect, there are lots of spikes, explosions, and desert sand.Watch it below: »

Director George Miller has quite the variety of movies under his belt: His film credits include the family-friendly Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City as well as the cruder Mad Max trilogy. Now, the Australian filmmaker is visiting Comic-Con for the very first time to promote the fourth in the Mad Max series, Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
Miller stopped by EW’s Comic-Con Hideout to explain why Mad Max: Fury Road is “basically a western on wheels,” his action movie inspirations, and why you won’t be seeing much CGI in his latest film. »

The first footage from “Mad Max: Fury Road” was rolled out at Comic-Con Sunday by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow. Also read: Comic-Con Accident: Car Plows Into Pedestrians During ‘ZombieWalk’ (Video) If this early clip is an indicator, Tom Hardy may have no problem making fans forget Mel Gibson, who starred as “Mad” Max Rockatansky in the original apocalyptic sci-fi saga back in 1980. The fourth film in the franchise is directed, produced and co-written by George Miller, the man behind the original. Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also star in “Fury Road. »

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), 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. And… Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. »

Thirty years after the final film in the Mad Max trilogy came out, Max is back and madder than ever.
Tom Hardy plays Max in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, a re-imagining of the original 1979 Mad Max that starred (and launched the career of) Mel Gibson. After the success of the first in the trilogy, director George Miller went on to make Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981 and then Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in 1985 before hitting a wall in the development of a fourth film.
But Miller now has directing, producing, and writing duties on the latest film, »

George Miller's return to action cinema was so triumphant at Comic-Con this weekend, that Warner Bros. just decided to share this first look trailer with those of us that sit beyond the walls of Hall H. The trailer is awesome. I don't need to recap anything. You just want to watch it. So do. It's below.Okay, well if you've scrolled back up... a few thoughts. The majority of scenes shown look to be from quite early in the film, specifically from one action sequence when Tom Hardy's Max is still the prisoner of the film's villain, The Immortan Joe played by Hugh Keays-Byrne, an actor who also appeared in 1979's Mad Max. The practical effects and stunt work look stunning, and, well, 2015 can't get...

How ready are you to watch a ton of explosions in the desert? Tom Hardy is stepping into Mel Gibson's shoes for the reboot of the Mad Max franchise with Mad Max: Fury Road, and this first look at the movie takes the antihero to insane new places. Hardy is joined by Charlize Theron as a warrior named Furiosa, as the two go up against a terrifying gang fighting for resources in a postapocalyptic world. This trailer, first shown at Comic-Con, doesn't give away a ton of the plot, but there is all the action you can possible imagine. Hopefully we'll get a better look at Hardy, Theron, and Nicholas Hoult as Nux before the film's May 15, 2015, release date. Until then, let this footage rock your day.

The official footage for George Miller.s Mad Max: Fury Road that screened in Hall H on Saturday makes its way online 24 hours later, promising viewers that 2015 will belong "to the mad." Hard to argue with them after seeing this intensely brutal, bone-crunching and vehicle-smashing trailer. The clip was shared via Warner Bros.. official Web site, plunging audiences back into the post-apocalyptic vehicle warfare of Max Rockatansky, this time played by Tom Hardy. It points out that it marks the triumphant return of George Miller, conceiver and director of the original Mad Max trilogy that included The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

Seriously, does this look unbelievably awesome or what. That George Miller. That Charlize Theron. That Tom Hardy. George Miller is directing the film from a screenplay he wrote with Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris. »
