For a film as massive as Mad Max: Fury Road, we sure know very, very little about it.  Director George Miller returned to his post-apocalyptic film series with this new entry that shot for seven months in Nambia following a number of delays due to weather issues (it was originally supposed to start production in November 2011).  After the film finally got in the can, a far-off release date of May 15, 2015 was set.  While that’s still quite a ways away, our first official look at the film has finally arrived by way of this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover.  The Mad Max: Fury Road image features stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron as Max Rockantasky and Imperator Furiosa, respectively; our protagonist and antagonist of the film.

In the context of the magazine issue, Miller also spoke a bit about the nature of the film, teasing it as one long chase sequence.  Hit the jump for more, and click here to check out the first collection of newly released images.

Speaking with EW, Miller provided a tantalizing setup for the film:

“I wanted to tell a linear story–a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes.”

The filmmaker added that Fury Road involves few digital effects and “even less dialogue”, saying “In this crucible of very intense action, the characters are revealed.”  Apparently Miller came up with the idea for the film back in 2000, but it’s taken a decade to get it on screen.  Early reactions to a very early test screening were mixed, but the film was likely in a rough state at that time.  I, for one, and intrigued by the idea of seeing a single chase play out over the course of one film, and the prospect of watching Charlize Theron play a character named “Imperator Furiosa” alone is worth the price of admission.

Check out the Mad Max: Fury Road image on this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly below, and look for more images soon.

  • Underground Anthem TX

    Wow, we might finally get to see this thing! Sequel, prequel, side-quel, whatever– I’m really looking forward to this.

  • Bronson

    FINALLY!! Some new pictures. I cannot wait for this.

  • @ScottieRock28

    I don’t care if this movie has a 0% Rotten Tomatoes score when it comes out, I will be seeing this movie in the theater on opening night. World War Z had production issues, but that turned out just fine, so I have some hope for this film.

    • mattinacan

      WWZ was terrible. I’m keeping my hopes up for this one though.

      YEah I don`t think WWZ is a good reference, that movie wasn`t good at all, the look of this movie on the other hand is surprisingly good

        Please dont speak like your opinion is widley agreed upon pr a fact. WWZ has a positive RT Critic and Audience Score and its IMDB rating is fine as well. Saying its not good at all like everyone thinks that, or its reguarded as so is just wrong to actually yhe majority, and most people. Just lyk.

  • juliocg

    Can’t wait! If Charlize Theron is in it count me in!!

  • Jegsimmons

    As long as it has some diesel powered murder machines, wasteland barbarians and mutants, and sawed off 12 gauges taking off faces, i’ll be happy with it.

  • MJ

    Didn’t they film this like 3 to 4 years ago now?

  • aco

    Is that a bionic arm she has there..?

    • Lord Humungus

      Yeah. It even has a sonic-pulse vibration setting, for those lonely post-apocalyptic nights.

  • Ruprect

    Trailer, please.

  • Ted

    Sounds very interesting, if its literally a 110 minute chase scene, then were in for quite a trip.

  • Tom

    Looks prett good. I hope after the first picture we will get soon also teaser.

  • Diego Fernando Salazar Proaño

    Is it me or Tom Hardy looks more like a young Mel Gibson than Mel Gibson actually does?

  • Barry Morgan

    O I mean the bar wasnt set that high, with the originals lol. It was pure may ham and this is going to kick some serious butt. Both of these actors have already proven they can do action movies. So its a perfect fit casting wise, but no one can replace Tina or Mel but these two are the next generation right?

    Yes, TRAILER please!!

    why his left hand is on her … ?

      I was thinking the same thing. It’s probably for “shock (er)” value.

    Not sure where all the optimism here is coming from? Given all the problems and delays, I would rate this as a 90% chance of being a complete dud.

    Be realistic. There is a reason this took over two years in post-production and re-shoots.
