Warner Bros. opens Mad Max: Fury Road in just six weeks, and the studio is experimenting with reminding us all that the movie looks totally insane, as if there was any chance we’d forget it after that first footage. So here are a few very short Mad Max: Fury Road teasers / TV spots. Mostly, they re-contextualize footage we’ve already seen, though eagle-eyed viewers will notice a handful of new shots. We’re excited to see more from the film, but at this point we’re ready for the whole thing. 2014 feels like it is already racing by like a post-apocalyptic convoy but still, May can’t get here fast enough.

As if we weren’t already eager enough to see Mad Max: Fury Road, there’s now the assurance that, unlike so many other recent sequels to series born in the ’70s and ’80s, this one will be rated R. In addition, there is a new Japanese trailer for the film, with a YouTube page that features a title that translates to something terrific: Mad Max: Anger of Death Road. Now that’s a movie I want to see. (Even if that is Google’s translation, rather than a proper conversational one.) Read More »

Time will tell whether Mad Max: Fury Road is actually any good, but we can say right now that the trailers for it are excellent. Each one seems weirder and wilder than the last, promising the kind of idiosyncratic vision we rarely see from big studio productions.
George Miller returns to direct, while Tom Hardy takes over Mel Gibson’s old role as Max Rockatansky. Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, and Hugh Keays-Byrne also star. Watch the Mad Max Fury Road international trailer after the jump.

If you’re reading this website, you’re most likely excited for Mad Max: Fury Road. Even if you haven’t been following the franchise since its humble beginnings, those trailers certainly hit your geek radar. The visuals and music director George Miller is working with for this latest film, which stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, look and sound remarkable.
As we all patiently wait for the release of Mad Max: Fury Road on May 15, the DC Comics imprint Vertigo has collaborated with Miller on a few new releases. There’s a large, hardcover book called Mad Max: Fury Road: Inspired Artists which has art influenced and inspired by the world of Mad Max by 65 famous artists. They’re also doing four character centric prequel comics, which will tell the story of characters played by Hoult, Theron and Max immediately before the film begins.
/Film is excited to exclusively debut the first information and covers for the two of these Mad Max Fury Road books. See them below Read More »
Mad Max: Fury Road looks absolutely crazy, and a new batch of images only fuels our curiosity about the movie. The film landed in the number-one spot of my most-anticipated list for 2015, in part because we don’t often see films like this from any source, much less from a major studio. This looks like an old Heavy Metal comic come to life, and early test screening reports describe a movie that is almost all action, with very limited dialogue. Given how great the action looks in this case, we’ll all for it. Check out a handful of new Mad Max Fury Road images below. Read More »

Just hours after I called Mad Max: Fury Road my most anticipated film of 2015 (other staff members, such as Germain, have a different film in their top ranks) the new trailer dropped, and melted the face off the internet. This trailer is total visual overload, with very little indication of the story to come. In fact, from what we know of Fury Road, that isn’t even a misrepresentation of the film. Like The Road Warrior, this is said to be primarily an action-heavy chase film, without much dialogue at all.
Still, there are some significant clues to take out of this new trailer. Below we’ve got dozens of Mad Max Fury Road photos from the new footage, and a lot of info about what’s to come in the film. Let’s over-analyze the trailer after the break. Read More »
I just listed Mad Max: Fury Road as my #1 most anticipated movie of 2015, and right on the heels of that list we’ve got a new trailer for the film. Watching this, my primary question is: How the hell does this movie even exist? This looks like pure, wonderful insanity, and like nothing we’d expect from the modern studio system. This seems to be a sequel that may barely be a sequel in modern terms; an orgy of practical effects and automotive destruction; and if some of those quick insert shots are to be believed, a dose of pure weirdness. Check out the new Mad Max Fury Road trailer below.

Because The Road Warrior is one of the best and most pure action films ever made, we’ve been clocking the development of Fury Road for years. Our first coverage was back in 2008, and the announcement that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy could be in the film dates back to ’09. News that director George Miller has written not one, but two sequels goes back to 2011.
So the Comic Con appearance of Mad Max: Fury Road was a great pleasure. The fact that the film was among the most striking things we saw at SDCC 2014 was even more impressive; after all those years in development, who knew what to expect? We’ve shown you the trailer, and now you can watch the whole Fury Road press conference, in which Miller and producer Doug Mitchell discuss the film’s development, story, and production. We’ve also gone back to a TV appearance Miller did several years ago, talking about the film. Read More »
Update: Warner Bros has released a three minute version of the Mad Max: Fury Road comic con footage. This is about three minutes out of what was shown at Comic Con, but it’ll give you a really good idea about why we were so taken with the footage. Watch the trailer now after the jump. That embed is followed by our original panel coverage from Saturday’s showing.
