Yes, it has wall-to-wall action and testosterone out the wazoo, but is that enough to make it the BEST film of the year? Does it justify its ranking above this year’s other heavyweight awards contenders like SPOTLIGHT, CAROL, BRIDGE OF SPIES, et al?
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the blueprint for action movies. The characters drive the action and the action drives the characters. They do things for a reason, and they are a product of their circumstances.
George Miller’s upcoming film, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult, has a new trailer, and it looks incredible!
Miller is the creator and director of the original MAD MAX films, starring Mel Gibson. The first MAD MAX was a blast, even on a low budget and with unintelligible Australian accents. This trailer looks like Miller has kicked it up ten notches.
Have you seen the original MAD MAX movies? How do you think this new one will compare?
