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.
Mad Max: Fury Road
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.
When ScreenCrush published its list of the best movie trailers of 2014, the staff consensus on the number one choice was immediate: The teaser for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ Now there’s a full trailer for the film and ... it’s even better than the first one. Is it too late to have two ‘Mad Max’ clips on one list?
Trailers are a huge part of the fabric of movies. They play before every film shown in theaters, and on every movie website around the world. They’re commercials, obviously, but they’re also more than that; miniature works of art that utilize the core elements of cinema—image, sound, music, action, editing—at their most pure and refined. And today at ScreenCrush we’re celebrating movie trailers by saluting the best sneak previews of 2014.
