Mad Max: Fury Road footage debuts at ComicCon - brains 'splode


Not available for public consumption, but footage of the new, long awaited Mad Max movie debuted at Comic-Con and has folks raving. Crazy, intense, channeling the aesthetics of the original trilogy...here's a snippet from one viewer's description:

At one point, muzzled Max, chained to the back of Hoult’s car, watches in awe as trucks and cars get swirled up into a flaming dust storm, exploding and sending bodies flying every which way. The shot is unflinching, the violence unforgiving; the scene seems to be on the edge of ending at every turn, but it just keeps going, getting more and more brutal and loud, until Hoult finally cuts the tension:

“What a lovely day,” he shouts. “What a lovely day!”

Write-ups with some spoilers are out there (see: MTV, iO9) if you're interested. Folks are going nuts about the footage, which is pretty frickin' great news.

They also released some promo posters, which I'm not in love with.

Only the mad survive!

BTW, Max looks to have added some new weapons to his arsenal (AK mags, pistol mags added to the outfit), but still has the old, iconic sawed off double.
