I was not expecting this at all. It totally came out of nowhere. But I have to say, the new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road is without a doubt the best trailer of 2014.

That's right. Better than Star Wars. Better than Avengers. Better than Godzilla. Better than Exodus. Better than Transformers. WAY better than Terminator. And, finally, even better than X-Men. This Mad Max trailer is two minutes of stunning cinematography, insane characters, haunting narration, and glorious post-apocalyptic explosions. It doesn't even matter that they give no indication as to the direction of the plot, or how this Mad Max film will differ from previous ones, or that you hardly even see Tom Hardy, or that Charlize Theron is almost unrecognizable. All I had to say when it was done was "Holy shitballs when does that come out."

The answer, incidentally, is May 15, 2015.
