Mad Max: Fury Road
After what feels like a zillion years in pre-production (somewhere around 2009 or 2011 depending on how you look at it), “Mad Max: Fury Road” is beginning to take shape. The redo/reboot/reimagining by director George Miller took over 120 days to shoot spread over two years. Not due til spring 2015, it’s post-production will have been almost two years as well. It’s made Warner Bros. a little nervous, but the recently released Comic-Con trailer—intense, savagely visceral and explosive— suggests it’ll be worth the wait.

Did you hear that cacophonous rumble coming from San Diego yesterday? What you heard was the sound of folks freaking out over the footage screened from Warner Bros.' upcoming "Mad Max: Fury Road" (recap the coverage here) at Comic-Con. But if you couldn't be there, don't worry! A trailer has now dropped online.

Mad Max: Fury Road
Shortly before the Warner Bros. panel in the cavernous Hall H at Comic Con, we were handed a T-shirt that said "Comic Con 2014 Belongs to the Mad." After seeing the panel for "Mad Max: Fury Road," we wholeheartedly agree. Director George Miller was on hand, along with a special video message from Charlize Theron, but the real excitement came in the form of the screened footage – a mind-boggling mix of practical and computer generated effects, with car chases the likes of which have previously never been captured on screen. This is some next-level, fire-breathing, post-apocalyptic mayhem.

Mad Max: Fury Road
Yeah, that was a cool “Avengers 2” Entertainment Weekly cover and all, but the “Mad Max: Fury Road” one stole everyone’s thunder. Wait, are we ranking EW covers here? No, but in terms of surprise, boldness and sheer bad-ass-ity—hell, one of the lead actors was missing an arm, for pete’s sake—we’d have to say that cover is one to beat for building anticipation.

Child 44 Gary Oldman Tom Hardy
Reader reports, audience reviews… meh. Sure you can keep tabs on that “coverage,” but posting about that stuff specifically can be hurtful or irresponsible to a film if the “reviews” are early and especially if they’re negative (hell, on the Internet they’re pretty easy to fabricate in either direction too). Finding out “early buzz” on a movie through test screenings isn’t hard if you’re looking for it. So that said, we’d been hearing a few whispers about “Child 44” and perhaps today’s news jibes with it.

Mad Max: Fury Road
It's been a long, winding, dusty and difficult road for “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Warner Bros.' new version of the “Mad Max” trilogy which loses Mel Gibson as the star and instead adds Tom Hardy in the lead role of Max Rockatansky. Director George Miller told us way back in 2011 that the narrative falls somewhere between a remake and a redo, but still retains some of the chronology of the original. “It’s a rebooted Mad Max, but it’s a new interpretation,” he said.

Mad Max: Fury Road, EW
“He’s a rebooted Mad Max, but it’s a new interpretation.” George Miller told us in 2011 about Tom Hardy playing the new anti-hero maverick of the wasteland. “We made it very clear from the outset that it would be crazy to try to impersonate what Mel Gibson had done, but Tom [like] Mel and Heath Ledger; these guys all have very similar kind of maleness, I find. I don’t know, they somehow remind me of big cats—they’re mesmerizing to look and be with, but you don’t know what they’re going to do at any moment.”

The Drop
The only thing you probably need to know about this movie is that is has Tom Hardy and a puppy. Okay, it also has the late James Gandolfini in one of his final roles, the always compelling Noomi Rapace, and the rock solid Matthias Schoenaerts, but we'd suggest to Fox Searchlight that there's still time to change the name of "The Drop" to "Tom Hardy Puppy Party." Just sayin'...

Tom Hardy, Legend
Tom Hardy is hardly an actor who shies from a challenge. He's bulked up, lost weight, done an entire role muffled under a mask in "The Dark Knight Rises", tried to revive the cardigan in "Lawless," done an entire movie in a car in "Locke," and tried to save "This Means War" from being an irredeemable pile of shit. Coming up, he'll be donning a Russian accent for "Child 44," and an Australian one for "Mad Max: Fury Road," and playing Elton John in 'Rocketman," but he just started filming today on "Legend," which might be his greatest task yet.

Tom Hardy, Inception
her decision to take on the hit Fox sitcom "New Girl." “I was always wary about doing television, just because you have to play the same character for a long period of time. Being a producer gave me the confidence to know that it would be a dialogue, and I wouldn’t just be told what to do.” And she's not the only actor seeing creative value in small screen endeavours.
