As promised, Warner Bros. showed off the first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa at the ongoing CCXP event in Brazil tonight, and it’s now available online as well!
Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Last Night in Soho) stars in Furiosa as the character played by Charlize Theron in Fury Road, with George Miller back in the director’s chair.
Watch the first official trailer for Furiosa 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 co-star in the upcoming prequel movie as Dementus.
“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.
