‘Furious 7’ has revved up audiences for vehicular action, but they haven’t seen anything yet. Friday May 15, 2015, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ roars into theaters and cranks up the automotive chaos. Envisioned by George Miller, the film is set in a dry, post-apocalyptic desert wasteland where the last of humanity– if you can call it that– must scrape and struggle for the bare necessities of life. Miller previously brought this world to life in the 80s, in three nightmarish sci fi classics, ‘The Road Warrior,’ ‘Mad Max’ and ‘Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome’ (which featured the unforgettable theme song by Tina Turner, who also starred in the movie), with a then unknown Mel Gibson in the title role.
Now Tom Hardy takes over and is joined by Academy Award winner Charlie Theron who plays the kickass Imperator Furiosa. Together the pair must protect four mysterious women from the evil despot Immortan Joe, played by Hugh Keays-Byrne.
Warner Brothers has already released six new video clips to get you ready for this action packed movie. Now slow things down with these 18 new stills which give you a clearer view of the main cast. Check them out below and click to enlarge:
