Anya Taylor-Joy is bringing the fury…
The first official trailer has been released for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, starring the 27-year-old Argentine American Golden Globe-winning actress.
“Whatever you do, whatever it takes — promise me you’ll find your way home.” This is what “the darkest of angels is told,” begins the trailer for the film, the prequel to 2015’s Fury Road and part of George Miller’s Mad Max universe.
Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth star in the film that returns to the iconic dystopian world launched 45 years ago with the low-budget/high-octane Mel Gibson-led Mad Max.
Oscar winner and six-time nominee Miller is back at the helm for the action fest he co-wrote with Nico Lathouris.
Here’s your logline: As the world fell, young Furiosa (Taylor-Joy) is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.
Alyla Browne and Tom Burke also star in the film.
Among the Fury Road Oscar winners returning for this trip are production designer Colin Gibson, editor Margaret Sixel, sound mixer Ben Osmo, costume designer Jenny Beavan and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt.
Warner Bros opens the film from Village Roadshow Pictures on May 24 stateside, with its overseas rollout starting two days earlier. Furious also will rev up in IMAX theaters.
