Very awesome, I am greatly looking forward to this movie, as a big fan of the first three installments.

looks good. I hope to hear some more dialogue in the next trailer. I'm not too keen on a 90 minute car chase.

Re: Mad Max:Fury Road Trailer

Wow, awesome trailer. Although I have to confess I still haven't seen the originals all the way through. I tried watching the first movie again recently, and it was just so bizarre and odd and cheesy I had to give up after an hour.

Hopefully this new movie will be more comprehensible, and won't take so long to get to the cool desert action.

Re: Mad Max:Fury Road Trailer

The first movie isn't all that great, IMHO. The second one is the real classic of the series. I don't think the original got a release in the US, so the second one was released as The Road Warrior, rather than Mad Max 2, so as not to put off people who hadn't seen the original. Really, 1 & 2 don't have a massive amount in common.

This one looks like TRW with a bigger budget and better technology. Someone other than Mad Mel playing Max will take some getting used to but Hardy should be good in the role.

Re: Mad Max:Fury Road Trailer

This just looks like George Miller reshooting The Road Warrior while constantly shouting...



I thought it was going to be a completely new story, not a rehash of TRW with a George Lucasian midlife crisis CGI update.

I'm slightly worried that they wreck the Last of the V8 Interceptors about 10 seconds into the trailer!

Ah ok, glad to know it's not just me. I'll go ahead and skip to the second movie then.

Re: Mad Max:Fury Road Trailer

1 is very low budget and doesn't have the post-apocalyptic setting of later installments. It's more like, immediately before the breakdown of civillisation.

2 containts all the elements we commonly associate with Mad Max - roaming the desert, gangs of raiders in customised vehicles, and assless leather chaps.

3 has Tina Turner, thunderdome, Bartertown, and some plot about finding a home for a tribe of wild children. It wasn't originally conceived as a Mad Max film, which might explain why it's lighter on the car chases.

Basically if you have limited time, just watch 2.

Am I the only one that is reading that as Furry Road?

That is scary!

Pretty light on dialogue but very heavy on pure awesomeness. Definitely has my interest.

IIRC, there is no CGI in the new film.

Re: Mad Max:Fury Road Trailer

I'm pretty sure all of the stuff with the Haboob (dust storm) is CGI. I find it hard to believe that they actually found a Haboob that big, and started blowing up cars in it and what not. It definitely looked CGI to me.

I really enjoyed the first two. I haven't watched Thunderdome yet, but it's the second thing coming up on my Netflix Queue so I'll probably watch it next week.
This one looks great, it looks like he took the best parts of the second one and cranked it up to 11. Honestly, as of now this is probably one of my most anticipated movies for next year.

I don't mean to be petty, but did I do something wrong in the general pre-release thread that I started for this the other day? I was just wondering why this one took off, but nobody posted in mine.

Well, I had no idea a trailer was coming out so soon, so I started a thread about screencaps.
