After the release of a fantastic teaser trailer earlier this year director George Miller has now dropped a glorious and exciting looking theatrical trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road.
The fourth installment in the Max franchise will be released on May 15th and stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Holt and Tom Hardy in the iconic role of “Mad” Max Rockatansky, made famous originally by Mel Gibson.
I don’t know about you but I am ridiculously excited about this film.
Here’s some sneaky footage from Namibia of some amazing looking vehicles in action which are set to feature in Mad Max: Road Fury. From the initial appearance of these cars it appears George Miller is steering the movie towards the original apocalyptic look and feel of Road Warrior.
What we do know is filming wrapped on December and this footage is apparently from extra scenes Miller planned on shooting. Apparently the rest of 2013 will be taken up CGI work and converting the movie into twat dazzling 3D, (which is a shame), with a planned end of year release.
The good news is Miller has shot two movies back-to-back, this one and Mad Max: Furiosa and Mel Gibson has a cameo role in the first credited only as ‘Drifter’.
Will they? Won’t they? Speculation has been rife over the future of director George Miller’s pet project Mad Max 4: Fury Road.
The last installment of the franchise, (Beyond The Thunderdome), was 25 years ago and for the last ten years Miller has been actively trying to get the green light for the fourth installment which it’s hoped will signal the start of a new trilogy of films with Tom Hardy, (Bronson, The Dark Knight Rises), replacing Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky.
But now it seems things are actively forging ahead with the announcement that Australian supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw who, according to website Nerd Bastards, will play:
‘… a sexy lady in a cage (a welcome addition to any film) who is part of a caravan of sexy lady wives who get chased around by the bad guys. If the film actually begins shooting, this will be Kershaw’s first big-screen appearance.
Kershaw is now the third name to be confirmed for the film with Charlize Theron filling out the role of a one-armed female warrior and shooting slated for this summer in Namibia.
