Mad Max: Fury Road–Starring Tom Hardy (in Mel Gibson Part)

Warner has released a new explosion-laden trailer for “Mad Max: Fury Road,” five months ahead of its May 15, 2015 release.

Tom Hardy takes over Mel Gibson’s role as Max Rockatansky and Charlize Theron plays Furiosa.

The setting is the post-apocalyptic, ultra-violent Australian outback. The trailer promises “A world without hope. Without law. Without mercy.”

The first trailer debuted in July at Comic-Con.

The film serves as a sequel to the Gibson-George Miller trilogy of “Mad Max,” “The Road Warrior” and “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.”
