As Mad Max: Fury Road is all set to be presented at Comic-Con 2014 on July 26, new promotional information and stills from the movie were recently revealed.
The most recent details state that main antagonist from the original movie, Mad Max (1979), will be returning in Fury Road. IndieWire reported that Toecutter, played by Australian actor Hugh Keays-Byrne, will be the prime villain in the movie again.
IndieWire also revealed the stills featuring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. Hardy, who plays the titular character, is seen with a muzzle on, much like his character in Batman. Theron is seen walking by a massive juggernaut of a vehicle in another picture.
The first look at Mad Max: Fury Road, which stars Tom 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."
The story in EW also reveals that the shoot was exceptionally gruelling given the desert heat, dust and gritty atmosphere. Doing action sequences in these circumstances only made it tougher. "Nothing about this movie was a walk in the park," Theron told the publication. "Vanity went out the window."
Miller also spoke to IndieWire recently about avoiding reliance on a script and dialogue: "To not have to rely on dialogue...I knew right off the bat that this was going to be like a huge ballet."
