Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga arrives in theaters laster this month, and as the press tour kicks off in Sydney, Australia (you can check out some photos of stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth below), Warner Bros. has shared a tonne of new promotional material for George Miller's Fury Road prequel.

In addition to a new international poster and still, we have three action-packed TV spots.

The spots reuse some footage from the previous teasers, but there is also quite a bit of new stuff, including a face-off between Furiosa and Dementus in which the Dark Angel prepares to test the warlord's "high pain threshold."

"This is an odyssey without question of someone who's taken from her home and spends the rest of her life trying to get home," Miller explained to EW in a recent interview "I don't want to give away too much, but the one thing is Furiosa, in order to survive as a child in a world that's in extremis, she has to have a lot of innate resources."

"What's remarkable is we see some people endure [those extremes] and still emerge with a degree of human magnificence," the filmmaker continues. "Others are crushed by it and lost on the way. So you can see from the behavior of the mother the sort of things that the daughter inherits in the story. I think we are a product of our parents and those that came before to some extent. And we take all that material as human beings and negotiate the world. I think that's all of our stories, one way or another. And that's the same in this story."

You can check out the recently released full trailer below.

"As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus," reads the movie's synopsis. "Sweeping through the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home."

Miller penned the script with Fury Road co-writer Nico Lathouris. The director's behind-the-scenes creative team includes first assistant director PJ Voeten and second unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris, director of photography Simon Duggan (Hacksaw Ridge, The Great Gatsby), composer Tom Holkenborg, sound designer Robert Mackenzie, editor Eliot Knapman, visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson and colorist Eric Whipp.

The team also includes other longtime collaborators: production designer Colin Gibson, editor Margaret Sixel, sound mixer Ben Osmo, costume designer Jenny Beavan and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt, each of whom won an Oscar for their work on Mad Max: Fury Road.

Looks good!!.

Anya seems to be doing well in the role but the more I see footage from this , the more I’m sure Chris Hemsworth will steal the show as the villain…

He just seems to be having so much fun!!.

@TheVisionary25 - My sentiments exactly. He’s the only reason why I wanna watch this movie. Taylor-joy is cool but when I think of Furiosa I think of Theron in the role. I’m also impartial to prequels.

Spring/summer is looking good this year for movies. I might actually go to the theater more this year than I have since before 20220.

So...hot take: Mad Max:Fury Road was an admittedly beautiful B-movie with 2-dimensional characters, a lot of overacting and some really fantastic practical stunts. Probably doesn't deserve more than 3/5 stars tops.

@Izaizaiza - I won't argue too much with anything you said... but it's still 5 stars.
FireandBlood - 5/2/2024, 8:43 AM
@Izaizaiza - Fury Road did what it set out to do at the highest level, that’s why it gets 5 stars. The craftsmanship that went into that movie makes most other blockbusters look basic in comparison, which is ironic considering how basic the premise behind Fury Road is.

@Izaizaiza - You just described all of the Mad Max movies apart from the 1st one, which was made on a tight budget. That's their appeal; it is what makes them great. Nobody watches Mad Max expecting high art. They watch them to have a good time. I understand what you are saying though, it's not for everyone.

@MarkCassidy @FireandBlood @Toecutter I can respect that, like a perfectly prepared cheeseburger. At the end of the day I enjoyed, but didn't love the film. I do appreciate the work on the film. Have you guys ever listened to the podcast "What went wrong?" They do a great episode on the making of

@Toecutter - How can you call a heavy metal, electric, flame throwing, murderous, guitar player chained to the front of a vehicle speeding through a desert wasteland,.. not high art?

@Izaizaiza - can't argue with characterization. But there is enough there with Furiosa and Max to sustain the story. Furiosa mostly. It's third best behind Max 1 and Road Warrior. I'd watch it over either Dune film all day tho.... Films that also are pretty flimsy on characterization. Paul wants vengeance. Gets vengeance. It is what is is. It's why Peter Jackson is so goated. His Rings films had the action, staging, with the well drawn characterization

@Izaizaiza -

I flat out didn't like Fury Road.
Izaizaiza - 5/2/2024, 3:49 PM
@McMurdo - can't disagree with any of that
