Mad Max: Fury Road gets a new synopsis

The long-delayed Mad Max: Fury Road has finally settled upon a 2015 release date, and now a new synopsis has been officially released online, giving us an idea of what we can expect from the series reboot…

"The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet," explains the official blurb, "in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life."

"Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (Tom Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos."

"And… Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.”

The first test screening of the film was also held yesterday in the States, with Collider detailing some mixed reports suggesting that the film is still a way from being the finished article.

With reshoots thought to be ongoing, hopefully any lingering problems will be ironed out by director George Miller by the time the film makes it to these shores on 15 May 2015.
