When the first footage of Mad Max: Fury Road premiered at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it was all anyone who was there could talk about. While the rest of us wondered what all the hype was about, buzz over the trailer consumed Comic-Con for days as ecstatic fans told us it was like nothing they’d ever seen before. When the first trailer arrived, it was incredible, but we still weren’t quite sure it warranted the immense amount of mind-blowing it seemed to cause at SDCC.
Well, now the second trailer is finally here, and we’re fully satisfied: This movie doesn’t just look mind-blowing; it looks game-changing. It really doesn’t look like anything we’ve ever seen before. Maybe if Clockwork Orange had a baby with Con Air by way of Tarkovsky and Terry Gilliam, then abandoned it in the heat-soaked Namibian desert and left it to be raised by metal-eating militant hyenas?
We’re left with nothing but hyperbole and caps lock, and that pretty much says it all, folks. In our expert opinions, Mad Max will be the best fucking movie ever made ever. We’ll see you in theaters on April 30.
