Nicholas Hoult ('Warm Bodies'), Riley Keough ('Jack and Diane'), Zoe Kravitz, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ('Transformers: Dark of the Moon') and Abbey Lee Kershaw are amongst those along for the ride. George Miller, who helmed the original trilogy, returns once more to direct. Check out the goods below. »
Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past. And the fact that neither Marvel nor DC announced any of its upcoming titles still stings. But, dang that footage! Both studios are clearly on the path to releasing two of the biggest movies of all time! It's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be vying to knock Avatar off its perch as the top grossing movie of all time. But seeing the latest and first footage from these superhero behemoths wasn't the only fun studios had with their fans and ever-expanding audience. There were a couple of curveballs thrown »
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showed off her toned legs in black skinny jeans and added a simple white t-shirt and green bag as she boarded a plane at Lax Airport in Los Angeles. She's also asserting her authority on some of her photo shoots. Huntington-Whiteley has become more opinionated during photo shoots. According to Telegraph.co.uk, the 'Victoria's Secret' angel - who has been modelling for almost a decade - likes to offer her own creative input on set and credits her increased level of self-confidence for helping her to express herself. She said: "Those days of just standing in front of the camera without an opinion are over for me. "I've paid my dues with that and I'm so lucky now I get to collaborate with brands where I can bring my creative input to things. It's exciting."

Director George Miller made us believe in a young Mel Gibson as "Mad Max" in 1979, heck he even made us believe that animals can talk in "Babe!" Now, the Australian director is making us believe that we need another hero in the form of Tom Hardy in the new "Mad Max: Fury Road."
The "Inception" star slides into Gibson's shoes in the sequel which had all of Comic-Con buzzing when the trailer premiered at the convention.
In the press conference at Comic-Con for the film, Miller said, "Of course it's based on the same character that they'll play, the lone warrior in the wasteland disengaged from the rest of the world."
Mad Max: Fury Road is the long awaited 4th instalment in the popular dystopian franchise. It sees Tom Hardy take on the role of Max from Mel Gibson, who may not be the best leader of a franchise these days. The trailer shows Hardy in captivity for the most of it, while Charlize Theron leads a band of women through the hellish landscape. This is an astonishingly action packed trailer filled with the kind of excessive car chasing and smashing we would expect. Granted, the inclusion of CGI effects is commonplace these days, but when an older franchise is brought back without a reliance on practical effects, it does take some getting used to.
George Miller, the man behind Happy Feet, directs, and I suppose it’s worth mentioning the versatile Aussie was also responsible for the original Mad Max trilogy. This will hopefully lend a lot of consistency to »

Mad Max: Fury Road has been a long time in coming. Writer and director George Miller began the dystopian action franchise with the original Mel Gibson installment in 1979, followed closely by Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981 and Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome in 1985. He reportedly hit a wall while trying to concoct the fourth chapter, but finally found his bearings on the story a decade ago and began shooting all the way back in 2012.

The Comic-Con trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road has been released online.
Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film in the George Miller franchise. The Max character was originated by Mel Gibson, with the first Mad Max movie coming out in 1979. Miller has directed all the films in the series.
The filmmaker recently described the fourth instalment as a "Western on wheels".
"Even if it's in the future, we have gone back [to] the more elemental behaviours. More medieval. The setting is very spare and clear," he said.
Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director/writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and you can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come with the first trailer that was originally unveiled yesterday at Comic-Con.
Directed by George Miller and set for a May 15th, 2015 release, Mad Max: Fury Road features Tom Hardy in the role of Max Rockatansky (previously played by Mel Gibson) and Charlize Theron as the tough-as-nails Imperator Furiosa. Fans of The Road Warrior should be happy to hear that the movie will essentially be one long chase scene with low amounts of dialogue and digital effects. Here’s the updated synopsis of the film, which was shot in Africa’s Namib Desert (updated synopsis courtesy of Collider!):

Warner Bros. has released the first Mad Max: Fury Road trailer for director George Miller’s highly anticipated fourth installment in the Mad Max franchise. The post-apocalyptic actioner sees Tom Hardy filling the role of Max, a man seeking peace following the loss of his wife and child, while Charlize Theron plays Furiosa, a woman who aims to survive by trekking across the desert back to her homeland. You'll have to watch this trailer a few times, not to glean any plot details but just to catch bits and pieces of the insanity on display. It's certainly in line with the madness of the previous films, though it remains to be seen whether or not Hardy can fill Mel Gibson's spiked boots because he's incapacitated for the most part of this first look. Still, there's lots to be excited for - car crashes, insane leather fetishes, slavers, open-desert high-speed chases, »
