This movie is shaping up to be the most visually stunning films of 2015. Sure, the special effects help, since you couldn't do gigantic sand tornados with lightning in them a 20 years ago. But Mad Max is special because it's rough, because it isn't all done using CGI and green screens.
The film makers really did ask for those monstrous 6-wheeled, skull-packed, supercharged monster trucks of the desert to be built. It's not done on a computer, it's done in steel. Massive explosions and costumes that remind you of 80s glam rock bands provide extra eye candy.
Besides the one-armed Charlize Theron, this latest trailer provides the first serious glimpse of Nicholas Hoult, whom you might remember as Beast from the X-Men, playing Nux. He's a very important character, not only in the movie, but also in the upcoming video game. Nux is a slave who does crazy stunts while being chained to the back of a car, shooting at pursuers and doubling as a mechanic.
Now here's a fun little fact for you to end this story. Mad Max: Fury Road was supposed to come out this year. But shortly after filming started in 2011, Australia was hit by rare high levels of rain. The film crew then moved to the Namibian desert in Africa.
