Was about to post it! It's awesome. I know someone who worked on it, from the sound of it the movie will blow our tiny minds.

 

And I think Tom Hardy is great.

Yes, it seems like it is true to the original series in terms of action and general craziness, which is great. I also think Tom Hardy is a good choice.
What I do not like about it is the guns. Which is funny, because I'm a gun collector nut. I was hoping to see more crazy improved firearms and brutal meele weapons instead of pistols and lever action rifles. But this is just a tiny personal gripe. 

 

Well, looks like I just found another reason to stay alive for one more year.

But OTOH the cars and vehicles are deeply cool.

 

Mad Max 2 (my favourite of the three) has compound bows, shotguns and (of course) razor-sharp boomerangs. I hope we see at least a nod to those.

Mad Max 2 was definitely the best of the series, with Mad Max 1 being a close second. Beyond Thunderdome had some redeemable scenes but the whole children-savior crap was really really bizarre, a failed try to make it family-friendly. 

Also, I'm pretty sure that guy in the car with the deadhead-jaw-mask-thingy and the white long hair is Hugh Keays-Byrne aka ''Toecutter'', who was confirmed to play a role in this movie.

Not Mel Gibson. Not Mad Max.

 

I also like how they decide to show how 'tough and edgy' "Max" is at start of trailer by having squish a little lizard. How mucho he is.

 

That criticism aside, looks like it could be a fun action though shallow film. And, I have no issue with Hardy.

On the optimistic side as George Miller is still running the show.

If you think of it more as Charlize Theron replacing Mel Gibson, instead of Tom Hardy, I think it holds up better.  She looks badass.

I facepalmed when he went into dark, brooding, gruff voice in the beginning.  The rest of the trailer was pretty badass, though.  Plus it's got Charlize Theron with a mechanical arm, which is a plus.  I hope this turns out well.

Looks like a 70% CGI music video. But since it's George Miller and Mad Max, I think I'll let it fly.

I think I can live with a few CGI 'splosions and sandstorms, the cars are real and look amazing, so do the actors. 

 

Also something I noticed, when Max fires the rifle it recoils. So? Well, recoil is hard to simulate with blank firing guns, so props to the director or the weaponry-advisors. You don't see recoil in most ''realistic'' over hyped war movies so thats a nice little detail.

I wonder if Charlize Theron went method and actually had her arm amputated for the movie?  Now that would be commitment to your role.  :shifty:

I'm on the "Tom Hardy as Max is meh at best" train, but it doesn't necessarily mean I will despise the whole movie based on that single fact opinion.

Oh well, we'll see - definitely going to see that in cinema which is SOMETHING, given how it was literally years ago, when I got that free ticket from my former employer to see...

...

Wow, I can't even recall what it was - must have been the very definition of mediocre.

I certainly don't expect this to wind up being Road Warrior good.  But heck, if this winds up being Beyond Thunderdome good I'll happily watch the bejesus out of it.

Since Miller has confirmed this is a re-boot and nothing to do with the original movies, I have to wonder how much back story is in this prior to the interceptor being written off in the trailer. I wonder how much of a back story we'll get if any. I do hope there is way more substance then what the clip shows, if that's all it is then it looks like a demolition derby so while I like the trailer I certainly hope there is more to it then just crap blowing up & flying through the air.

They're not going to put relevant story parts into a trailer of an action movie. Don't worry, I'm sure it will have just as much story as the other Mad Max films.
