A brand new trailer for the upcoming post-apocalyptic epic Mad Max: Fury Road has been released by Warner Brothers. This latest preview of the fourth movie in the series by director George Miller, which also includes Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, all starring Mel Gibson, is dubbed a “Legacy Trailer” and looks back at the past movies from 36, 33, and 30 years ago.
We’ve seen plenty of trailers for the movie that have overwhelmed us with excitement, but to see these clips of the decades-old movies before getting another peek at Fury Road only adds another layer of excitement as the blues and blacks and other colors popping amongst the predominantly dusty brownish-orange hue of the newest installment really get those sensory receptors firing off nicely.

From Oscar-winning director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
Miller directed from a screenplay he wrote with Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris. Miller also produces, along with Doug Mitchell and P.J. Voeten. Iain Smith, Graham Burke and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.
Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
It will be released in theaters in the UK on May 14, 2015, and in the US on May 15th.
