    It's very unlikely to me that it could top The Road Warrior, but it's a great looking trailer. More sex appeal too.

    I don't think it could too Road Warrior either. But I'd like to see George Miller try :)

    Trailer looks good but it's the dialogue, acting and plot that makes a movie good, if it's got all of that plus great action then it should be very good, put it this way, we have had plenty of films over the years with great trailers that look fabulous but they have had poor acting or a script with too many holes in it, hopefully this one will have it all.

    I'll still miss Mel Gibson as Max but like the Bond movies i can adapt when a new guy is cast, i hear Mel has a cameo in this.

    Mel Gibson, could still play this role today. This bullshit! Its like ROPOCOP (2014) and no I don't fancy added that to my bluray collection.



    Agree on Tom Hardy. he's done some good works on films.

    I like the end credits of Mad Max III.

    Oh man, it's gorgeous.

    I don't even care that I wasn't there, or didn't see the other crap at Comic-Con (apart from Interstellar).

    THIS is the real thing, right here. Like, this is serious, "visual artist"-level of gorgeous.


    I have to say, probably my biggest reservation for this film was having a large portion of it filmed in Africa instead of Australia, but based on the trailer, anyhow, it looks like that's nothing to sweat, here.

    It's like George Miller just took decades of my daydreaming and made a trailer out of it. Holy crap, I'm excited.

    Something else I should probably add to the discussion, here:

    A good school-buddy of mine actually saw this movie around two months or so back, having attended one of the recent studio test-screenings in Los Angeles, and he tells me that Fury Road is basically a gigantic reboot of the franchise -- he described several major elements that George Miller has changed, continuity-wise, from the original Mel Gibson trilogy, including:

    a flashback to Max Rockatansky, his wife, and teenaged daughter around the time of the war, as opposed to infant son Sproggo.

    Also, the trailer kinda alludes to this a little bit, but:
    Max loses his V-8 Interceptor in Fury Road in a manner extremely incompatible with the same event as depicted in The Road Warrior.

    Another big thing that he mentioned:
    Miller has really amped up the "sci-fi"/"radiation mutation"-angle in this movie, much moreso compared to how things were in the Mel Gibson trilogy -- we saw the two-headed lizard in the trailer, but my friend also mentioned numerous mutants who show up later in the movie, similar to the Fallout games. He also described Charlize's robo-arm for me several weeks before Entertainment Weekly broke their big cover story on the film.

    Basically, Miller has taken several key, iconic elements from the Mad Max series (Max, the V-8 Pursuit Special, the chase-sequences), and has refashioned things significantly for a new audience in a new century.

    Fury Road incorporates elements from the 1979 movie as part of its backstory, but in a pretty selective way, and looks to be set in an entirely new continuity altogether.

    Not too keen on that change, it's not necessary unless he plans on bringing her into one of the films.

    Agreed -- I'm also wondering why he went that far with that particular change too, except maybe to emphasize to the audience that this is unquestionably a completely-new continuity, or something similar.

    From what my friend told me,
    we get to see Max's daughter in some type of flashback-sequence (at one point, she berates Max for "not being able to protect us"), and the apparent implication is that both she and her mother both die not long after the war starts (another difference from the Mel Gibson films, where Jessie and Sprog perish right before the nuclear holocaust).

    The car is coming back later in the film, improved.The changes are because it's a reboot, and it fits the new film themes better.I trust Miller to not do a Prometheus on us. Big difference is Scott is lining up films. Miller takes the time to make his films.This is going to rule 2015.

    Reportedly, from what my friend tells me,
    the V-8 Interceptor gets stolen by the bad guys at some point, and Max never recovers it.

    They also shot Mad Max 5: Furiosa back to back with this one if what i have been reading is correct so we can look forward to another one regardless of how well this does at the box office. 2015 is a busy year for sequels and reboots.

    It would probably be watered down for school children rated 12A in the UK :wacko: and PG-13 in the USA to cash in on it in the afternoons after school.

    MAD MAX rated "X"

    [​IMG]

    MAD MAX 2 rated "X"

    MAD MAX 3 rated "15"

    Yeah that's my fear actually, this will likely be a PG-13 movie, that doesn't mean it will be bad but i'd like a hard R for these films, i guess some might say that the present day PG-13 is actually as tough as the old eighties R rated flicks, for sure you get away with more violence with PG-13 these days, they need to make their money back and i think PG-13 is probable.

    The MM5 screenplay itself and at least one draft of the MM6 novelization(!) have already been written, but Warner Bros. is waiting to see how well Fury Road does before greenlighting the next movie:

    http://www.wegotthiscovered.com/movies/george-miller-reveals-mad-max-fury-road-sequel-script-written/

    Miller has two more films planned out in long-range form, so here's hoping this one kicks some box-office ass next year.

    Also I don't know if anyone caught this, but did my eyes deceive me, or was there a quick shot of a guy getting pulled under a huge tractor trailer-ish thingy and getting pulverized into red mist?

    Actual physical consequences on display in a mainstream action movie: may I never, ever take you for granted ever again.

    Also, there are simply some jaw-droppingly gorgeous shots in this trailer. Incredible composition, lighting, and color-washes:
