    Default MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

    I remembered seeing this trailer ages ago and getting super hyped, but something made me remember it again today and I've been watching this trailer over and over all day and I AM SO FREAKING STOKED for this film to come out omg

    I couldn't be happier that the original director is handling this and that he's doing it the proper way, even if it's thirty years after the release of his other (awful) movies.

    WATCH BOTH OF THE TRAILERS THEY ARE DIFFERENT AND AWESOME





    Tom Hardy is quickly climbing the ladder on my list of favorite actors, and this may be the first time I don't either passively hate Charlize Theron in something, because her character looks awesome and badass. Also, the fact that they use the Battle Royale theme in the first trailer just hypes me the hell up more than I can possibly contain myself, for reasons because 1) it is awesome, and 2) combining two cult things together is also awesome

    And now we all need to have a Mad Max/Road Warrior marathon in preparation!

    Talk about how awesome this movie looks!

    Not interested until Thunderdome is confirmed Pretty hyped up though, looks visually stunning. I don't mean the effects when I say that, just the stylistic choices are really gritty.

    Was in to it the moment I heard Theron and Hardy are attached.

    The trailer is the most exhilarating trailer I have ever said. Like omg, so much stimulation.

    My boyfriend had a funny reaction to the trailer.

    Him: *sees Mad Max: Fury Road trailer* Wow, what an original idea.

    Me: ...

    I wish they had Mel Gibson in it in some capacity. He was part of the charm of the Mad Max movies, including the first one which, while quite different from the other two, still benefited from his presence. I hope Tom Hardy can pull the role off with enough charisma; he certainly has talent for it, but it'll be difficult for me viewing him be in the role which Gibson has made so iconic. It'll be interesting to see whether this movie will be a sequel, a midquel, or a reboot of sorts. The ending of Beyond Thunderdome was already somewhat definitive as far as Max's journey was concerned, but if the plot and characterization is given enough care, this could turn out to be a very enjoyable movie.

    With that said, I'm glad to see the good ol' George Miller involved in this movie as he always had an eye for thrilling chase sequences and capturing the dreary yet somewhat hopeful scenery of this future with its quirky inhabitants. The trailers show promise, but it's difficult to judge the movie based on them. I hope the full movie will deliver in spades and reignite this classic franchise as Miller does view this movie as a "renaissance" of the concept.

    I noticed Charlize Theron is carrying a SKS in the movie It's my all time favorite rifle. I just hope this doesn't make it more popular. Also that scope is horribly wrong on that rifle. It would never function correctly as the spent shells would be smacked into it on ejection every time the rifle is fired. Damn hollywood. Also of course Hollywood would use a post assault weapon ban SKS without a bayonet on it or maybe it's just because California doesn't know what "shall not be infringed" means. I also love how the super anti-gun celebs are the ones toting guns in all the movies -_-

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I didn't realize that was Charlize Theron. Girl looks good with a shaved head.

    I felt indifferent towards the trailer and only knew it was a remake because my parents recognized it. Mom doesn't want to see it anyway, and since she's usually the one with the money to pay for theater tickets (when it's not something my dad really wants to see) then that means I'm not seeing it.

    Amazing. Surpassed all of my expectations. I chewed my fingernails down to nothing because the action was so intense. Charlize Theron was amazing, Tom Hardy was amazing. This is the best action film I've ever seen in my life.

    Was never bored, not once during action scenes - some of them stretching into twenty minutes and longer. Non-stop action kamikaze of a film, and it was beautiful.

    According to wikipedia, a fifth film called Mad Max: Furiosa is expected to release in the future! So stoked!

    God bless George Miller. And Tom Hardy.

    Didn't see it yet, but it's a movie that judging from the trailer seems like an intensely action-packed film. I can't wait! Also having another film with Charlize Theron as Furiosa is cool. I really don't see what the big deal is about changing the gender of the character. Apparently women can't shoot guns and have shaved heads.
