Mad Max Fury Road might make you rethink your whole I’m-sick-of-redos stance on filmmaking, because this trailer looks really, really fucking cool. What it lacks in a young, pre-weirdo Mel Gibson it more than makes up for in using original director/visionary George Miller who boasted during San Diego Comic Con this past weekend that Mad Max wasn’t really a CGI film (although there are some minimal green-screen moments). From the looks of the copious automotive wreckage and undiluted carnage, that revelation seems like a serious understatement. Mad Max Fury Road stars Inception and Dark Knight Rises‘ Tom Hardy and a post-apocalyptic Charlize Theron. Whether or not this is a sequel, prequel, remake or what remains unclear, but you can consider this movie ticket purchased.
