Holy shit balls. New trailer.

Here.

Based on this, I'm more excited about this sequel than Star Wars.

Gorgeous, exciting. Holy shit. Can't wait.

I saw the Comic-Con one the other day and thought it was good. I'm keeping an open mind.

It's hard to call it a sequel, the V8 intereceptor was in the trailer I saw on the Edge Of Tomorrow DVD.

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road

I'm not entirely certain, but from what I've read online it's either a reboot, or a midquel set between Mad Max and The Road Warrior. Honestly, I wouldn't be to surprised if they left it rather ambiguous.
I really liked the new trailer. It still didn't tell us much more about the story than the SDCC trailer, but it did give us a bit of a better look at some of the characters.
I absolutely love the look of this movie.

Continuity wise, I don't really care, and I think it will be ambiguous in the movie. It looks super exciting, super weird and out of the box from the rest of what's going on.

I'm in.

That looked AMAZING! I can't wait! When I was a kid Beyond Thunderdome was one of my all time favorite movies.

It looks a bit OTT, but yes, amazing. I'm keen for this.

Yes, this is as good as pulling your pants down on an empty highway in the middle of winter and letting the breeze tickle you.

I like that the action is so off the hook and yet it doesn't look like cartoony transformer level special effects. Its like someone went back in time to George Miller in the 90s threw a bucket of money at him and said "have fun".

Story? Since when is story important to Mad Max? The first one was a hoot and had no real story. This looks like it'll be a hoot times 11.

I liked a comment on FB :"showed too much of nthe characters and plot and not enough car chases and explosions".

And Miller got a note from Michael Bay: "dude, calm down!"

He's jealous that Miller can make a good movie with explosions and he can't.

I've been hearing about this movie for a while and never had any interest in it till I saw the trailer, it looks bad ass. I'll certainly be checking this movie out in theatres.

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road

They've released a new international trailer. (It looks like Japanese writing, but I'm not always good at differentiating Asian writing.) The only new footage is a couple of quick cuts during the montage, but I still thought you guys might like to see it.

Absolutely true. But it's also true TWO of Michael Bay's films are in the Criterion Collection, and even though I like ARMAGEDDON I keep wondering how he pulled that off. Or paid that off. ROAD WARRIOR should be a Criterion someday.

Bruce Spence returned for the third film. Now the Toecutter actor is playing a different character for the fourth.
