MAD MAX: FURY ROAD “LEGACY” Trailer Ties Hardy Back To Gibson


One last trailer tonight, which is also a sort of “half-trailer,” with a little more new substance than today’s Batman V Superman: Justice Begins teaser, but less than provided by Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ second trailer.

The new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road focuses on the franchise’s legacy, reaffirming promises that Fury Road is not a reboot, but a continuation of Max Rockatansky’s story of survival, whether he be played by Mel Gibson or Tom Hardy.

Here’s that “Trailer” titled, as one would have it, “Legacy.”

A wee bit of new footage there, and a little back-story and confirmation Mad Max films have always been this wacky for those who are new to the franchise. Sure, new Mad Max: Fury Road looks super stylized and beautiful while the old films have a dirty look, so there’s a bit of a prequel-Star Wars-films-not-looking-like-the-classic-stuff scenario going on here.

But why dwell on the past? Why can’t Fury Road top Road Warrior? Dream big, right?

What A Lovely Day. New MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Trailer!


No need to repeat the fact that 2015 may be the best year for movies ever (yet here I am repeating it).

Joining the bevy of trailers for sequels to classic franchises that have been released during the holiday season is the 2nd trailer for George Miller’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’

It’s got car chases and crashes… and car chases and crashes… well, even director George Miller pegs the movie as one long chase scene filled with fantastic stunt work one does not see in modern Hollywood due to the price (mainly of insurance) and danger (hence the high insurance rates).Mad Max: Fury Road

And, though the trailer is also rich with CGI dust storms and the like, most the action in the movie was done the old fashioned way; when you see those scenes it is a completely different experience to watching digital characters or cars rush around. These are real cars, real stunt men, real explosions. Everything has an actual weight to it, because it IS real (mostly… mostly…).

Watch the trailer here now!


To quote my new friend Rocket.

“Oh, yeah.”

That’s more like it! ‘Beyond Thunderdome’ was a really, poorly thought out sequel to ‘Mad Max’ and ‘The Road Warrior’ (aka ‘Mad Max 2’); not matching the tone or action of the two other films.

Fury Road Charlize This is the Mad Max we need. This is the Mad Max we deserve.

And though I do prefer the action in the original Comic-Con teaser, this trailer sure has a lot more character (not literally per say, I mean stylistically).

For comparison sake, here is the original trailer.
