Next week. That’s when Mad Max: Fury Road finally, after years and just about the bumpiest road you can imagine for any movie, roars into theaters on a wave of gasoline and exhaust fumes, and I couldn’t be more excited. A new featurette digs into the hero, Max Rockatansky, now played by Tom Hardy, peeling back some of the layers of mystery surrounding him.
Max starts out as feral, a beast that can’t talk, which certainly explains why Hardy has said that he only has between four and twenty lines in the whole damn movie. Stranded in a vicious, post-apocalyptic wasteland, he’s a wanderer, besieged by voices in his head, and searching for a righteous cause. And there’s a bunch of new footage here, which is an added bonus.
Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters Friday, May 15. Check out the featurette below.
