It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the newest film in the Mad Max franchise, Mad Max Fury Road. Today we have a new synopsis for the film as well as some news about what people thought at a recent test screening.
First, here’s the new synopsis:
“MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by TOM HARDY from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.
And… Furiosa (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.”
Now, as far as the screening went… sad to say, the general consensus was that everyone is glad there’s a year before the movie comes out. That means they’ve got plenty of time to fix it with re-shoots.
Mad Max: Fury Road opens May 15, 2015 and stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Nathan Jones.
