"Oscar-winning filmmaker George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” revisits his own post-apocalyptic trilogy featuring the anti-hero known as Mad Max. Tom Hardy stars in the role of Max Rockatansky, alongside Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley."

As someone that grew up loving Mad Max I was delighted to watch the new Mad Max: Fury Road trailer. It mixes the right amount of post-apocalyptic biker punk ascetic with the dry wasteland vibe we've come to love seeing in games like Fallout 3. That said, Mad Max did all of it first and the original director of the series, George Miller is back with a new saga and Fury Road is starting it up.

Mel Gibson played Mad Max and he isn't coming back to reprise the role. This time, Tom Hardy plays Max and he seems like the perfect fit. Charlize Theron is a new character called Imperator Furiosa and she is all over the trailer in a cool way.

Curious where this movie will fit in with the original Mad Max, Road Warrior and Thunderdome. Max has his signature car, so this might be between the first film and Road Warrior?

So, Max is a Targaryen? Huh.
