"Mad Max: Fury Road" is the fourth film of George Miller's "Road Warrior/Mad Max" franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max (played by Tom Hardy from "The Dark Knight Rises"), a man of action and of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from "Prometheus"), a woman of action who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

“Mad Max: Fury Road" stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. "Fury Road" is the fourth film in the said franchise and the first film of the franchise in 30 years. Initially conceived shortly after "Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome," George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" or "Mad Max 4" failed to launch on multiple occasions. Miller announced a screenplay had been written in 2003. It was put on hiatus at the beginning of the Iraq war for fear its release would be insensitive.

“Mad Max: Fury Road" is directed, produced and co-written by George Miller. The story follows Mad Max, who is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa, who wishes to cross the desert.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
