New trailer roars in for Mad Max: Fury Road: watch now

A brand new trailer has exploded online from Mad Max: Fury Road, and it's big, bold and every bit as epic as we could have wished for.

The new trailer is set against the backdrop of "a world without hope", in which water is in chronically short supply and oil is as precious as golddust.

Highlights of the new teaser include a frankly terrifying Nicholas Hoult, a staggering tidal wave of sand, some Fast & Furious level car-chases and a whole heap of explosions…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

It had all gone a bit quiet on the Mad Max front, but this latest trailer has put the film right back at the top of our most-anticipated list! Goosebumps ahoy…

Directed by George Miller and co-starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Mad Max: Fury Road will open in the UK and US on 15 May 2015.
