From mastermind George Miller, the godfather of the post-apocalyptic genre, comes the explosive new film MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Continuing the story of Max Rockatansky, a lone wolf bent on survival in a desert wasteland, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD teams him with Furiosa, a woman fleeing the tyranny of Immortan Joe from whom something precious was stolen. What follows is an insane Road War in which George Miller’s style is on full display with frenzied nonstop action in a heart pounding chase to freedom.

Tom Hardy stars as Mad Max and Oscar winner Charlize Theron stars as Furiosa.  The film also stars Nicholas Hoult; Hugh Keays-Byrne and Nathan Jones.  It also features Zoë Kravitz (“Divergent”), Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”), supermodel Abbey Lee, and Courtney Eaton, collectively known as the “Wives”.  Also, featured in the movie are Josh Helman, Jennifer Hagan and singer/ songwriter/performer iOTA.
