Mad Max: Fury Road
At least viewed from afar, since most of The Playlist team didn't go down for the event, it would seem that "Mad Max: Fury Road" walked away from this year's Comic-Con with the best buzz of any film that was presented. The trailer certainly got folks talking and amped up the excitement for what look likes a white knuckle action flick that is going re-invigorate the franchise that has been largely dormant for decades. Clearly, hitting San Diego a year out from release with a major presentation about the movie, Warner Bros. has big hopes for this movie to spawn even more, and it looks like the foundation has not only be laid, they are ready to go should 'Fury Road' prove to be a hit.

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.

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.

Tom Hardy Mad Max Fury Road
We suppose there are two ways to look at Warner Brothers plans to release "Mad Max: Fury Road" during the summer of 2015 (which will essentially be three years after filming began): either the glass is half full or the glass is half empty. And for director George Miller, who is now in the midst of additional shooting on the picture, he's brimming with optimism about his movie, about WB's plans for it and even some of the early feedback he's been receiving.

Marvel may have edged out over DC cinematically with their adaptation miracle of “The Avengers” and the goodwill that it afforded them, but if a series of calamitous episodes never befell director George Miller back in 2007, the record might have been a little different. Borne from the development of “Batman Begins” and decent reception for “Superman Returns,” the “Mad Max” director was tapped to direct a “Justice League” film for WB, but as the budget surpassed $200 million, tax incentives changed for the worse in their planned shooting location of Australia, and the writers' strike hit, the project quickly fell apart. Well, now the blueprints for the catastrophe have been revealed for any interested parties.

Tom Hardy Mad Max Fury Road
The “Mad Max” franchise has never been one suited to swift and easy productions, with much of the films' narrative devoted to high-speed chases across dystopian deserts with unbearable conditions. When it came to the series' fourth installment, “Mad Max: Fury Road,” with Tom Hardy as the titular lead, they were better prepared and came in slightly over schedule on a July-November production last year. But as time has passed without news of a clear release date, we've recently learned there's still a bit more apocalyptic carnage to be shot.

5 Versions of Superman feature
This weekend, "Man of Steel" finally takes flight. An ambitious, massively expensive project devised by "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan (serving in a story writer/producer role), writer David S. Goyer, and directed by "Watchmen" filmmaker Zack Snyder, the film, while flawed, is an epic rejuvenation of the Superman mythos, encapsulating everything from the destruction of Krypton to the very human feelings of isolation and dread on Earth (you can read our non-spoilery review here).

It hasn't been a good year for blockbuster movies in the press. With both "John Carter" and "Battleship" taking losses, "47 Ronin" and "World War Z" going through some very public production troubles and delays, and even "The Lone Ranger" falling off course (after Disney had already delayed the pic to rein in the spending), studios are more wary then ever with their tentpole projects. Not only are they taking their time -- Disney put David Fincher on a three-month hold as they consider "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" -- but they're also trying to contain any issues that do crop up. Which brings us to "Fury Road."
