Earlier today we learned that the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make its debut at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in California. But that’s not the only major film we’re interested in — unless you went to Comic-Con last year, you didn’t get to see the teaser for Batman vs. Superman, and you’ve been anxiously awaiting your first look at the feuding heroes in action. Turns out, you’ll get your chance much sooner than you realize.
Mad Max: Fury Road
Mad Max: Fury Road is like the blockbuster version of a Stefan sketch from Saturday Night Live: “Hollywood’s hottest movie is Mad Max: Fury Road! This movie has everything: Cars with spikes, motorcycles on stilts, albinos with crazy teeth masks, guitars that spit fire!” At least in this trailer (and pretty much all the film’s trailers), the whole thing just looks absolutely bananas, not so much post-apocalyptic as post-sanity.
This summer is going to be absolutely nuts. Not only do we have the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron to look forward to, but there’s also Mad Max: Fury Road, which is going to melt your faces right off. We got a sneak peek at some new footage during SXSW, and while that footage won’t end up online, we do have a few new explosive teasers to share. They might be brief, but they pack some serious action.
Last night, following a very special screening of The Road Warrior at SXSW, director George Miller treated us to seven minutes of action-packed new footage from Mad Max: Fury Road, as well as an exclusive new trailer created just for the fest. The new footage was brutal and gorgeous, and gave us a nice taste of Charlize Theron’s intensely bad ass Imperator Furiosa.
This new Mad Max: Fury Road trailer comes to us from Japan and is mostly a condensed version of the previous trailer, with a few new scenes added on. No matter. Even at just over one minutes with Japanese subtitles, it's still knocking our socks off.
Sorry, Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we might just be a little more excited for Mad Max: Fury Road, which sees original Mad Max director George Miller returning to the gritty franchise for an exceedingly explosive new installment. To help you get even more pumped about Fury Road (if that’s even possible), Miller has teamed up with Vertigo to release a new art book and prequel comics for the film.
Not only is ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ one of our most anticipated films of 2015, but we named the fist-pumping trailer for the upcoming film the best trailer of 2014 (how could we not?). And while we patiently await more awesome trailers leading up the film’s release, Warner Bros. has revealed two new looks at leading man Tom Hardy via a couple of Empire magazine covers.
It’s been almost 30 years since the last ‘Mad Max’ movie hit theaters in 1985. That's a long time since ‘Thunderdome’ but with ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, the franchise is making a major comeback (albeit with a different Max Rockatansky). Need to catch up on your ‘Mad Max’ knowledge? You can get a primer on all things ‘Mad Max’ in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on George Miller’s dystopian trilogy. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…
T-minus one week and counting until 2015 —and now that we’ve finally put our 2014 top-ten lists to bed, it’s time to turn our attention to the new year. From the looks of things so far, it should be a good one.
Two of our most anticipated films next year happen to be sequels: ‘Jurassic World’ and ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ It’s not often that sequels get people this excited, which is even more reason to celebrate. Following their fantastic trailers, both films have just released new photos to give us a sneak peek at a couple of particularly awesome moments. And while these photos should help satisfy our craving to see these films immediately, we have to admit that they’re just making us a little more impatient.
