Warner Bros. unveiled the first The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies poster earlier today in anticipation of the film’s upcoming Comic-Con panel, and now the studio has done the same for director George Miller’s highly anticipated Mad Max sequel/reboot. The first Mad Max: Fury Road poster shows Tom Hardy’s titular character watching an impending onslaught of presumably brutal wastelanders, complete with the delightfully ironic tagline “What a Lovely Day”. The images we’ve seen thus far from the pic have been wonderfully strange, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the first footage at the film’s Comic-Con panel this coming Saturday.
Hit the jump to take a look at the Mad Max: Fury Road poster. The film also stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosei Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. Mad Max: Fury Road opens on May 15, 2015.
Here’s the official synopsis:
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by TOM HARDY from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.
And… Furiosa (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
