article imageNew trailer for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ is insane (video)

The latest trailer for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ is a spectacular display of explosions and desert car chases that is putting the film onto many lists for anticipated releases of 2015.
In a future that’s running out of oil and water, “everybody’s gone out of their mind.” The newest trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road has a much a different tone from the first one released at the San Diego Comic-Con in July, though its soundtrack still plays a significant role in setting the mood.
While the initial look at the film focused on the despondency of the future, this teaser highlights the over-the-top action fans can expect when the film is released in May 2015. Rather than re-cutting the same footage there is a lot of new content, which combined produces an insane montage of fire, explosions and wreckage arranged perfectly to the classical tune of Verdi’s “Requiem — Dies irae.”
It appears George Miller, writer, director and creator of the original Mad Max trilogy starring Mel Gibson, is taking advantage of all the technology not available to him when designing the exploits of the first “road warrior.” The absolute destruction displayed in just two-and-a-half minutes is a testament to what the already admired earlier films could have been if Miller had the means. Instead, Tom Hardy will dodge flying metal, fire tornadoes and countless exploding cars in the title role.
Fans will have to wait to discover what part the scary man with white hair will play in the narrative, but the ample screen time assigned to Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult (even out-clocking Hardy) shows they will have significant roles in the film.
The other standout element is the variety of modified vehicles and people distributed throughout the trailer. Spikes, cranes, armour and big foot tires are just some of the accessories making what could be a single long car chase quite entrancing. And the scars and other body modifications created via make-up effects are rather inventive (and somewhat frightening).
The story’s world may be one without hope, law or mercy, but the trailer is certainly not without anticipation for what could be next year’s most visually arresting blockbuster.
