Looks like this film did real well at the Comic Con yesterday. Too bad we cant see the clip yet, but still... this is some caption of what was seen...
As for Mad Max, imagery adorning the extra-wide screens that circled most of Hall H for the Warners panel featured the slogan “Fire Blood Oil,” which any Max fan could tell you pretty much sums up life in the Wasteland.
Over footage of a vast desert landscape, Tom Hardy, as the new Mad Max, narrates: "My name is Max. My world is fire and blood." A two-headed lizard, evocative of the effects of high-powered radiation, skitters towards Max – who is bedraggled and hairy, who stamps on it quickly and gobbles it down as he turns towards the camera. His post-apocalyptic S&M gear looked tarnished and ragged. Max is engaged in some kind of chase, and captured by a scary man in a white gas mask (Immortan Joe) that's painted like a skull. He opens a vault as we hear the words “You will rise from the ashes of this world,” and inside, scrawled on the floor, are the words “Who killed the world?” Nicholas Hoult is in white face paint, dressed like someone from the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations (at one point he sprays silver metallic paint into his mouth).
The heathens that capture Max tie him to the front of a car and start driving towards a swirling dust storm – it's like something from the Dust Bowl but mixed with some crazy phantasmagorical weather formation, they cut his hair, tattoo most of his back with some words or letters (the shot flashed by too quickly to catch them). Lightning bolts shoot down from the sky and smack into the earth with a thunderous clap. Theron is driving some kind of tanker truck, full of some unknown liquid (we've heard that it's not gas…) We see glimpses of Theron, whose head is shaved and who is protecting a group of young women, some of whom are pregnant and all of whom are dressed in white -- the only glimpse of life in this horrific land.
Cars crash into each other and debris flies around. It looked insane; a cacophonous level of raw violence and, of course, fury. The idea that Miller wanted to do a pure car chase movie and get narrative and character details out through that chase very much comes across; there is barely any dialogue uttered and most of that dialogue is interspersed with grunts of exertion. This is a post-apocalyptic world, bleak and unforgiving, more heightened and bloody than anything that had come before it. It looks like all the pain they went through making this movie ended up on screen in a big, big way.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
