Stunning New Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer Drops

Mad as hell? Not going to take it anymore? Calm yourself – as while we've still got a few months before the much delayed Mad Max: Fury Road hits cinemas, judging by the latest trailer it should be well worth the wait.
 
Our latest eyeful of next summer's blockbuster delivers a flurry of spectacular sand-baked action from the film, mostly involving torn, twisted and violently designed vehicles akin to those of the original films, only matched for menace by the bandits driving them.
 
Rather than a reliance on CGI, it’s great to see some old fashioned slow-motion set-pieces, helping make the transition between the beloved originals and this big budget modern reboot all the more seamless.
 
Written and directed by franchise founder George Miller, it stars Tom Hardy as the nomadic widower seeking peace of mind after his wife and child are killed. And it seems the madcap themes of the original have pushed their way to the fore here (see: Nicholas Hoult's howling stitched up oddball).
 
Springsteen has Thunder Road. The Beatles have Abbey Road. And well, it looks like Hardy has Fury Road
 
Mad Max: Fury Road hits cinemas from 15 May, 2015
