This Mad Max Fury Road Trailer will Inherit the Earth Long After the Apocalypse

I don't want to get into the practice of lobbing overly-gracious superlatives at every pretty trailer that walks my way, but Gotdamn. This new trailer for Mad Max Fury Road is a high-octane sensory overload of bondage-clad brutality and enough freak sandstorms to rend an apocalyptic siege campaign to the bone.

After a severely protracted twenty-five year stint in development hell, thirteen of which spent under the helm of director George Miller, it's exhilarating to finally see the fruit of these cinematic labors come to bear. All three of the Mad Max films are science-fiction classics in their own right (Personally, I think The Road Warrior was the Dark Knight of its time), so let's see if Fury Road has the metal to stand alongside the series' forebearers.

This screenshot does not do the trailer justice.
This trailer follows on the heels of other high-profile triple-A sci-fi films like Terminator Genisys, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Star Wars The Force Awakens. Couple that with the Wachowski's Jupiter AscendingBatman v. Superman (that v is stupid), Jurassic World, The Fantastic Four Reboot, Del Toro's Crimson Peak, Insurgent, Ex Machina, and Mission Impossible V (phew!) and it looks like 2015 is shaping up to become the next great year of sci-fi. So much film, so little hours in the day.
