Everyone has there own special character who will never be replaced. Take for instances everyone has their James Bond, Batman or Doctor Who. And now we will have one more argument that is about to kick off. Who is your Mad Max? The reason why this argument is because the Mad Max Fury Road trailer has just dropped and Tom Hardy,although not featured that much, has just taken the ball from Mel Gibson and looks like he is going to run with it.
We did have an earlier teaser trailer that showed us glimpses of what we might be expecting from George Miller and his return to the world that helped create a star in Mel Gibson as well as put a small independent movie on world stage. This time filming moves to Namibia and our new Max is played by Tom Hardy. The trailer doesn’t really showcase too much of what we can expect from the new Max and his place in the world he lives in but that isn’t the reason for the trailer. This trailer is Miller’s way of showing off the action spectacle that we are going to be investing our money in come May 2015. And from a person perspective the trailer hit each mark and target I had in place.
As a self confessed fan of the original trilogy, as well as Tom Hardy, it was already onto a winner in my book. But the trailer kicked those expectations into over drive as the car chase we saw brought back memories of the original car chase from “The Road Warrior” and ” Beyond The Thunderdome” which is no small feat. I have dropped the classic “if it’s all the same with you” quote into conversation for no reason over the years simply because I loved the sequence that proceeded that line as it was one of the first times that I was really invested in an action hero from that era.
The trick that Gibson and Miller were able to pull off with the original trilogy was that they created the original movie bad ass who would risk everything to survive. His character slowly evolved over the course of the trilogy with his selflessness shining through when it came to helping others escape or survive. Although we don’t know much about the new movie we can guess that it takes place after “Mad Max: Beyond The Thunderdome” and that we’ll have a lot more car chases than before.
"Though determined to wander the post-apocalyptic wasteland alone, Mad Max (Tom Hardy) joins Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a fugitive imperator, and her band who are all trying to escape a savage warlord."
Joining Tom Hardy and George Miller this time are Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. We do know that Theron will be playing one of the five wives and that it will be up to Max to try and protect them on their escape attempt but apart from that we’re in the dark really. This could be one of the movies that has gone under the radar for 2015 due to the likes of the Avengers and Star Wars: The Force Awakens but the Mad Max Fury Road trailer may have brought it right back into the minds of the movie going public.
