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).

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.
