CL Nation, we’re psyched to share rugged new artwork for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD!
From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary â€œMad Max,â€ comes MAD MAX: FURY ROAD starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, ZoÃ« Kravitz, Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in theaters May 15, 2015.
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
Tom Hardy (â€œThe Dark Knight Risesâ€) stars in the title role in â€œMad Max: Fury Roadâ€â€”the fourth in the franchiseâ€™s history.
