The highlight of the Warner Bros. Comic-Con panel Saturday wasn't "Batman vs. Superman." It was George Miller's return to Max Max, "Fury Road." And Warner marketing didn't miss a trick, releasing the trailer and posters the next day. Here you go.

The highlight of the Warner Bros. Comic-Con panel Saturday wasn't "Batman vs. Superman." It was George Miller's return to Max Max, "Fury Road." And Warner marketing didn't miss a trick, releasing the trailer for the post-apocalyptic actioner and posters the next day. Here you go. 

When I interviewed Mel Gibson in Karlovy Vary (here), he told me that George Miller had initially considered casting him in "Fury Road" some years ago, but finally he was too old and they didn't see a need for a cameo. But new Max Rockatansky Tom Hardy did meet with Gibson to get his blessing, and he was impressed by the actor. Gibson says that Miller was trying to outdo not only his original trilogy, which reached its peak with the hugely influential "Road Warrior," but Quentin Tarantino in action mode.

Miller wanted this movie--written by Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris-- to never stop moving, to be non-stop all-out action from start to finish. We will see if he has achieved this, but the trailer gobsmacked me. Charlize Theron looks glorious as Imperator Furiosa; Nicholas Hoult vo-stars. Why do we have to wait for May 15, 2015?
