by at . Comments

Following the reveal of Gal Gadot as Wonderwoman, San Diego Comic-Con treated movie fans to another major reveal today:

The very first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road!

The blockbuster, which reboots the franchise started years ago by Mel Gibson, will be released on May 15, 2015.

It will feature Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in lead roles and be directed by George Miller, who teased during today’s panel discussion that this Mad Max movie will take place 30 years after events on the previous one.

"A lot of time has passed," Miller says. "Technology has changed. It was an interesting thing to do. Crazy, but interesting."

The movie also stars Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - and you should stop whatever you are doing to watch the trailer now:


I don't know if I want to see this. Growing up, I was a huge Mad Max fan, watching all three movies multiple times. Many don't know "Mad Max" is what brought Mel Gibson to stardom. Replacing Max in this run of movies would be like replacing Wolverine in the Xmen series of films, it just wouldn't be the same. Look what happened in the most recent "Bourne" movie if you have any doubts. It's not so much the story, it's the actor.
