Earlier today, we got our first official look at director George Miller’s long-awaited follow-up Mad Max: Fury Road. It was a tame EW cover featuring the film’s leads, Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, but now a batch of new images has surfaced, and they confirm that this movie is going to be absolutely nuts. Nicholas Hoult is nearly unrecognizable as the bald and makeup-clad Nux, while the dystopian landscape is filled out with plenty of dangerous vehicles and sketchy characters. Miller describes the film as one long chase sequence that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes, and based on these first-look images, the ride is going to be anything but dull.
Hit the jump to check out the Mad Max: Fury Road images. The film also stars Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosei Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. Mad Max: Fury Road opens on May 15, 2015.

Here’s the official synopsis for Mad Max: Fury Road:
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark 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 just 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 wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.
And… Furiosa (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
