A crowd favorite, and perhaps the best highlight of the Comic-Con happening at San Diego, was the screening of the first ever seen trailer for "Mad Max: Fury Road," the long anticipated fourth installment in the George Miller Max Max franchise film series, at Warner Brothers' discussion panel.
The teaser trailer is "an explosion fest" according to Mashable. It opens with a scene of Max (now played by Tom Hardy) stomping down on a two-headed desert gecko before stepping in to his trusty Interceptor, apparently to escape from a group of pursuers. He was caught, incapacitated and hoisted up as a trophy. From that point on, scenes follow of mad, non-stop heart-stopping action - car chases, fighting, pillaging, shooting, carnage and car crashes all done against the backdrop of a bleak and desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland. The trailer, which was scored to music by JunkieXL, also gives us glimpses into the characters of Imperator Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron), the other main protagonist in the reboot movie, and Nux (played by Nicholas Hoult), the main villain.
Following the trailer's screening, Miller said, "I was able to make the movie I wanted to make. WB allows the filmmakers their process." He added, "I was determined not to do conventional thing and do screenplay. So we boarded the whole thing like a comic book, with 3,500 panels - there aren't many words, people only speak when they have to, and I wanted to tell the story in pictures."
Mad Max: Fury Road opens in theaters on May 15, 2015.
