Mad Max Fury Road: what to lookout for

Mad Max Fury Road: what to lookout for

The next installment of the Mad Max franchise hits the big screen in a big way next May. Mad Max Fury Road stars versatile English actor Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises; Inception and RocknRolla) as Max Rockatanski, Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa and Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy; Warm Bodies and X-Men First Class / Future Past) as Nux.

Filming took place in Namibia two years ago and two trailers have recently been released much to the excitement of Mad Max fans around the world.

By the looks of it, George Miller, legendary director of the original 3 movies (Mad Max; The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome) over 30 years ago (who has since brought us children’s classics such as Babe: Pig in the City and Happy Feet 1 & 2) has returned triumphantly to his barbarian roots and Fury Road promises to be a visually stunning anarchic western on wheels which will satisfy fans and win new ones overnight!

Look out for veteran actor, Hugh Keays-Byrne, The Toecutter in the original movie, who plays the ‘grin mask’ wearing Immortan Joe in this one. What a lovely day...
