Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer is Here, and It’s Badass
Remakes and reboots don’t always make for the most palatable films, so it’s easy to react immediately to the news that a cult favorite is being remade and losing its marquee star with a groan (which is almost invariably followed by a long tirade on your Facebook page). Such was widely the reaction to the announcement of Mad Max: Fury Road, which replaces Mel Gibson with Tom Hardy in the titular role.
If you’re among the skeptics, you should probably sit down for a tick and watch this:
So what do you have to look forward to, according to the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer? A lot of really badass car chase sequences through the desert, which is definitely a step in the right direction.
Where Fury Road will differ from most other remakes/reboots/sequels/prequels/midquels/spin-off is that George Miller, the man behind the original Mad Max trilogy, will return to the director’s chair to continue his vision after the film spent nearly a quarter-century in development hell.
Face it, cynics: this film looks way better than you thought it would and you are just as excited as the rest of us to check it out next year.
