George Miller News
The whole world’s about to go mad (again) as Tom Hardy takes up the title role of George Miller’s long-awaited follow-up to his famous post-apocalyptic action series, Mad Max: Fury Road. Also starring Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Keays-Byrne (who played Toecutter in the original Mad Max), the film is set in a dystopian future where key resources have dried up and those left alive face an everyday struggle for survival. From what we’ve heard, Mad Max: Fury Road is light on dialogue and heavy on crazy stunts, car chases and explosions.
Mad Max: Fury Road has quickly become one of the most anticipated movies of the summer. Warner Brothers has launched a short 15 second teaser that is all explosions, all the time. Watch as star Tom Hardy leaps from car to car dodging giant fireballs in a few select moments from what promises to be one long two-hour car chase!From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary "Mad Max" franchise, comes Mad Max: Fury Road, a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Kids, dreams do come true. Among the movies we listed in the 20 Films We Hope To See At The 2015 Cannes Film Festival was George Miller's hugely anticipated "Mad Max: Fury Road." Now, our team on the Croisette knows which movie they'll be lining up for on the second day of the fest. Organizers have announced that the Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult starring film will screen Out Of Competition on May 14th, one day before it opens worldwide.
Director George Miller didn't bow to Hollywood's need to make everything watered down and kid-friendly! Unlike Terminator Genisys, which has hinted at a PG-13 rating to ensure a younger audience will be able to see it, and last summer's neutered The Expendables 3, Mad Max: Fury Road is retaining it's core ingredients, which includes a fine mix of adults-only mayhem! George Miller didn't want to stray far from his franchise's roots, and because of that, the MPAA has rewarded the sequel an R rating!
