Judging by this trailer, the fourth Mad Max movie is everything we’ve ever wanted in a movie…
HOLY SHIT! I just watched Beyond Thunderdome for the first time recently, so obviously, the last thing I was all that interested in seeing was another Mad Max romp. This is a franchise that’d been dead for three decades after going out with a watchable, yet ridiculously campy whimper. I was done, so was the rest of the world. As of two minutes and twenty-nine seconds ago… everything is different now.
Jesus Post-Apocalyptic, Bigfoot-Flippin’ Christ! We’ve been writing up trailers for a while here at Laser Time, and I can’t remember being so won over by one to this extent since the first Avengers trailer. And that I was anticipating. Mad Max I’d all but written off entirely. I suppose I shouldn’t have been so surprised living in a world with six, soon-to-be seven Fast and Furious movies that keep getting better and better, but good God, was I floored by the practical effect heavy BOOM/BAM on display. I’m not even sure if Tom Hardy said anything, but then a semitrurck was gobbled up by a fucking tornado made of lava and I was practically tripping over myself to get over here and toss up what might be the greatest piece of consumer marketing material of our generation. This will be the trailer we tell our children about! I’m barely joking – CLICK THAT SHIT, PEOPLE!
Even better, this is from the brain of George Miller, the man behind the original films, and his last directorial efforts were fucking Happy Feet movies. Don’t think to much about it, just enjoy. Man, looks like somebody’s ass will be catching up on the Mad Max Trilogy over the Holidays.
