New Mad Max: Fury Road stills featuring a limbless Charlize Theron channeling savagery as Imperator Furiosa were recently revealed.
The images have surfaced via various publications, like the Verge and ComingSoon.net, on the internet. In one of the stills Tom Hardy is seen in the titular role, warding off two enemies, atop a rugged jeep, which is being driven by Furiosa. In the other image, Theron captures the brutal starkness of Furiosa as she pins down a man, and wields a gun with one hand, while the other amputated limb hangs in the air.
Previously two new portraits of Hardy as Mad Max in Fury Road were unveiled on the cover for the February 2015 issue of Empire magazine which hits stands on new year's.
As the movie graces the cover of the entertainment publication, Hardy is seen looking very gritty and severe as Max. One cover is a close-up shot of his face, and the other is a front profile of him, looking rugged with all his ammunition and gear on him.
The first look at Mad Max: Fury Road, which stars Hardy and Charlize Theron, was revealed via Entertainment Weekly's July cover, the dark and gritty semblance of a ravaged place is effectively captured. The story gave away some more information about the sequel to the original (1980).
Both the original and the new adaptation have been directed by George Miller. Miller also stated that the movie will feature very little CGI with 80% of the reel capturing naturally executed stunts. But also stated that he was working on creating, "not just a physical experience, but an intense emotional one."
In the cover story interview with Entertainment Weekly Hardy added that the seven month shoot in the hot desert, which was completely dead and parched, was both taxing and rewarding.
"It was mental in a brilliant way," Hardy said. "You have no concrete, no coffee shops. We were in the middle of a sandpit."
Mad Max: Fury Road will hit theaters on May 15 2015.
