MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Images: First Look at Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult


We finally have the first look at George Miller's long-awaited sequel/reboot to the 1980s classic "Mad Max". The new film will be titled "Mad Max: Fury Road" and from these first images released by Entertainment Weekly, I can say that the spirit of the original films is still there. The pictures give us a look at the new Max, played by Tom Hardy, the villainous Imperator Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron, and her minion Nux, played by an almost unrecognizable Nicholas Hoult.

The coolest thing about this reboot is that, according to his interview in EW, director George Miller intends the film to be one huge chase scene :
"I wanted to tell a linear story–a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes."
The film also stars Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosei Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones and Abbey Lee Kershaw.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" opens in theaters on May 15, 2015.

Official Synopsis

"MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by TOM HARDY from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

And… Furiosa (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland."
