George Miller is back with the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road spinoff prequel Furiosa, centered on Charlize Theron‘s Imperator Furiosa character. Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Last Night in Soho) is taking over the role this time around, and a first look at Taylor-Joy’s version of Furiosa is now on display at the Warner Bros. booth at the CCXP event in Brazil.
CCXP23 runs from November 30 – December 3, and it’s expected that the first trailer for Furiosa will be debuting out of the event. While you wait, check out a sneak peek below.
Furiosa will release in theaters on May 24, 2024. The film will tell the origin story of the character Theron made famous in Mad Max: Fury Road, also directed by George Miller.
Here’s the official Furiosa synopsis:
“As the world fell, young Furiosa 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.”
Chris Hemsworth will also star in the upcoming prequel movie.
“Whereas Fury Road essentially happened over three days and two nights, this happens over many years,” Miller had teased during a press conference last year.
Miller is co-writing and directing the movie for Warner Bros.
Back in 2015, Mad Max: Fury Road grossed nearly $400 million worldwide at the box office and won SIX Oscars, while also scoring rave reviews nearly across the entire board.
Last we heard, Miller also intends on making sequels centered on Tom Hardy‘s Mad Max.
