Charlize Theron takes centre stage in new Mad Max trailer

A new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road has arrived online, and this time it’s Charlize Theron’s formidable Furiosa who takes centre stage. And from the looks of this latest footage, she’s every bit as badass as the titular hero.

The new trailer shows Furiosa caught in the midst of a fuel deal that goes south, with the gang leader forced to turn tail and run when her buyers get a little too aggressive. And with that, the chase is on…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

We’ve said it before, but the practical effects on display here really do look jaw-dropping. When it comes to souped-up war machines going hell for leather across the desert, nobody does it better than George Miller.

Co-starring Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Mad Max: Fury Road will open in the UK on 14 May 2015 and the US the following day.
