One of the highlights of the cinematic material screened at this weekend’s Comic-Con convention was Mad Max: Fury Road. Warner Bros. publicly unveiled this first footage exclusively to the excess of eager fans that attended the convention; however, they also decided to release a shorter version of the preview online Sunday.

The plot for the new installment of the Mad Max film is as follows: The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a desolate 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 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 family in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from Prometheus), a woman of action who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller’s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller.

The trailer featured, what can be considered, the ultimate car chase, starting with a feeling similar to The Road Warrior, but then opening up into incredible vistas and blasts of action that go far beyond anything Miller has put on screen in the past.
