Mad Max: Fury Road is a sequel that also serves as a partial reboot, with Tom Hardy taking over the role of Mad Max from Mel Gibson. Max is still dealing with the tragic loss of his wife, events that were depicted in the original Mad Max from 1980. He teams up with Charlize Theron's Furiosa, who is attempting a long journey back to her childhood home. Along the way, she is being chased by Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne, who starred as Toecutter in the first film).
Mad Max: Fury Road will be a part of the Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con 2014 on Saturday, July 26th. We can expect the first footage, and perhaps even a trailer.
Mad Max: Fury Road comes to theaters May 15th, 2015 and stars Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Josh Helman, Nathan Jones. The film is directed by George Miller
