The Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer Is Here, Plus New Synopsis


“Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.”

Cool. A new bunch of made-up names and ranks. That implies a considered mythology for a movie that’s been described as one long car chase. I’m in.

I think this is the first time a director has been called “mastermind” in a trailer, too.
