With about a month to go before “Mad Max: Fury Road” hits the Cannes Film Festival, Warner Bros. is starting to make the franchise connection more pronounced. Last week came a legacy trailer for the film, which underscored how it continues from the previous three films starring Mel Gibson. Now, a new Japanese spot brings us a bit more footage and a little more voiceover from the man who refers to himself as the “Road Warrior.”
Running just over a minute long and powered by some truly terrible alternative rock (which I hope isn’t indicative of the finished movie), we get introduced to bits of new footage, a few more moments of dialogue, and of course, lots of explosions. If you’re looking to get your pulse racing this summer, ‘Fury Road’ looks like the choice to beat.
“Mad Max: Fury Road” looks for redemption on May 15th. Watch below.
