With “Mad Max: Fury Road’ less than two weeks away from release, Warner Bros. has gone into pedal-to-the-metal, overdrive mode, releasing one last final furious trailer and carpet bombing us with six full clips yesterday. Now the studio has dropped over 30 new photos from the film to give you a further taste of the arid, post-apocalyptic wasteland featured in director George Miller‘s insane vision. This reporter has seen ‘Fury Road,’ and while he’s sworn to secrecy, I can say this: those trailers don’t lie. Here’s the official synopsis:
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
