In the not so distant past, Mock Films Blog put up a trailer for a film set in the not too distant future, Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). Feel free to go check it out. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) (NR)- Official Trailer I’ll wait—Welcome back. Up to speed? Excellent.
In the post apocalyptic wastelands of the near future, tribes of savage men are ruled by sociopathic tyrants. Gas and water have become the new currency. Control of either means power as vehicles mean life. Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), an ex-cop haunted by the loss of his family, wanders the desolate earth struggling to survive. After being captured by a cultish dictator named Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne) and his followers, Max is dragged along as the villains chase down Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron, who owns this picture), a transport driver who has turned on Immortan Joe. Then, well, it all got a bit blurry from there. This movie is an unrelenting, unapologetic, fireball spewing, big budget work of art. Not usually the words one would use when explaining art, I know, but it will all make sense soon enough.
