The first ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ trailer is ridiculously awesome

Mad Max Fury Road trailer

Many wondered how Mad Max: Fury Road could possibly live up to the legendary status of the original Mad Max films and now that we’ve gotten a look at the film’s first trailer we understand.

Director George Miller talked about how the lack of using CGI helped make this look so amazing…

“I know when I see too much CG, that sort of takes me out of the experience. You want to have that sort of almost, I’m not going to say documentary experience, but you want to feel it like you’re really immersed, like it’s really happening. So we decided to literally do every car that’s smashed is smashed, every stunt is a real human being, even the actors do a lot of their own stunts, and so on.”

This is definitely no documentary experience.

Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Zoe Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and is set for release on May 15, 2015.
