Fury Road – George Miller & Japanese Trailer

Director George Miller recently took part in a Q&A after a screening of The Road Warrior in Austin, where he explained Fury Road’s relationship to the previous outings in the series:

It’s sort of a revisit. The three films exist in no real clear chronology, because they were always conceived as different films… The way we all thought about it, is next Wednesday, all the bad stuff we see in the news comes to pass, where we have economic collapse and oil wars, water wars and stuff we didn’t even see it coming and we jump 45 years into the future and in a sense we go back to a dark age without rule of law.

Miller said he had finished Fury Road just two nights prior to that screening, which explains why, despite the fact that the film has been in post-production for a very long time, it hasn’t been officially shown to audiences.

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.
