It’s been months since the original teaser trailer, so Warner Bros. has a new poster for us, as well as three quick 15 second spots, all leading up to tomorrow’s release of a full trailer for the film.
First, the poster.
Now, those quick teasers I promised.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ hits theaters on May 15th, leaving two weeks for the Avengers to shine.
Andrew runs the show! Nick still steers talk towards Spider-Man. Andrew pushes on to his own guilty pleasures and blindsides Nick with some ‘Mission: Impossible 5’ news. Pod ends with ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ and movie-going experiences discussion.
Nick and Andrew begin their discussion, dissecting the latest, 2nd ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ trailer (what a surprise!) before moving onto the “Oscars Game.” Basically, Nick tries to guess the Academy Award nominees with little help from Andrew. The best episode yet! For real. Would I lie to you?
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.’
Tom Hardy takes over for Mel Gibson as ‘Mad’ Max Rockatansky in the sequel that ‘Beyond Thunderdome’ should have been.
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).
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.
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.
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.
We also got in new ‘Fury Road’ posters at the movie theater I manage this week.
2015 belongs to the mad, whether they be psychotic robots, cross-breed dinosaurs, or a scary man with a crazy lightsaber.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ hits US screens on May 15th, 2015.
