The spectacular third trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road has been released.
The fourth Mad Max film, which will be released on May 14, sees Tom Hardy replacing Mel Gibson as the eponymous 'road warrior', joining a war rig fleeing across the Wasteland led by Furiousa, played by Charlize Theron. Hugh Keays-Byrne, who played Toecutter in the 1979 original film, returns as this film's villain, Immortan Joe, the warlord ruling over the post-apocalyptic Citadel from which the rebels are fleeing.
Nicholas Hoult also features in the film as Nux, although his costume changes him almost beyond recognition. The plot has been described by director and co-writer George Miller as "almost a continuous chase", with and infuriated Immortan Joe sending gangs to persue the rebel travellers, in barren post-apocalyptic landscape where factions chase and battle for the remaining natural resources, namely oil.
Originally set for 2014 release, Fury Road will now come out 30 years after the third Mad Max instalment, Beyond the Thunderdome (1985). Shooting on Fury Road was beset with difficulties, with filming moved from New South Wales to Namibia after heavy rain made the Australian desert bloom with wildflowers.
Fury Road is released worldwide on May 14
