The first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road debuted at Comic-Con on Saturday, and from the all-star cast to the pyrotechnics, it does NOT disappoint!
Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron star in the action packed thriller, along with Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and red hot Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. This is the prequel to the Mad Max trilogy (the last film was released in 1985), and when asked what it was like to return to the franchise thirty years later, director George Miller said, "It was very familiar. A lot of time has passed. Technology has changed. It was an interesting thing to do. Crazy, but interesting." Miller added that the flick is "a Western on wheels. Even if it's in the future, we have gone back the more elemental behaviors. More medieval. The setting is very spare and clear."
Of course, moderator Chris Hardwick had to ask about Mel Gibson, who starred in the first three films. "Who knew that Mel would turn into Mad Max at one point," he joked. Miller's reply? "They have that eternal tension," he said. " On one hand they are entirely lovable and accessible. And on the other there is that element of danger … It applies to every charismatic person." Well put!
