‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘s prequel ‘Furiosa‘s trailer just dropped and it looks promising. The trailer for the 2015 film’s prequel has been anticipated for a long time.
Directed by George Miller, the film marks the fifth installment in the ‘Mad Max‘ series. Here are all the details about the Anya Taylor Joy film and what we can expect.
The official synopsis for the film reads, “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. 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.”
The trailer begins with a muffled gunshot sound and a pan across the Wasteland. “Whatever you have to do, however long it takes, promise me you’ll find your way home,” the voiceover says. Cut to a young Furiosa clutching a teddy bear while being taken from her family in a cage. It’s then time to fire up the engines and the chaos begins. The trailer includes everything that was expected, the War Boys with skull masks, the skinheads, explosions, a juvenile Immortan Joe, and a fleeting view of the pristine Green Place of Many Mothers.
