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 of Mad Max’s post-apocalyptic future, Miller said that the most most comparable time to his dystopia would be the dark ages. “Even if it's in the future, we have gone back the more elemental behaviors. More medieval. The setting is very spare and clear.”
Watch the Mad Max: Fury Road Comic-Con footage below now:
“It’s not a reboot and it’s not a sequel, the best description I have is a revisit,” said Miller of the difficult-to-categorise follow-up. Well, that clears that up then.
You can find out what it is for sure when Mad Max: Fury Road opens in the UK on 15 May 2015.
