If you weren’t sold by the first trailer then this second one has to seal the deal. Tom Hardy is Mad Max in a world in which he isn’t sure who is crazier, everyone else, or himself.

Mad Max: Fury Road seems to be a semi-reboot taking place after the events of the original Mad Max–meaning it is intended to either precede or replace The Road Warrior. Like that film, it’s low on dialogue. Miller reportedly relied more on storyboards than on screenplay in composing the film, but given that he’s had the better part of 30 years to get the 4th Mad Max film right, I’m fairly optimistic for Fury Road.
