The new Mad Max: Fury Road trailer somehow tops the last one

Featuring the sort of wild-eyed crazy that made the original Mad Max and Road Warrior movies so amazing, this latest Mad Max: Fury Road trailer couldn't be any better.

It's thrilling, disturbing, and even has a chilling cameo 90 seconds in.

This is what a Mad Max movie needs to be.

Fury Road, which is being directed by George Miller, the man behind the original franchise. Here's the trailer's summary of the movie, due out next summer:

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.

Tom Hardy takes on the titular role of Mad Max in this fourth in the franchise. He is joined by Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Nathan Jones.

The film is scheduled for release on May 15, 2015. Until then, I sleep.
