In 2015, director George Miller gave us Mad Max: Fury Road. The film seemed to come out of nowhere, a fourth instalment in a franchise that had been dormant since the mid-eighties. Miller’s previous film had been the animated Happy Feet Two. So few were expecting the riotous, heavy metal frenzy of Fury Road, which instantly became an action movie classic, thanks to it’s mind-boggling combination of roaring, vehicular mayhem, and acrobatic combat that scarcely seemed possible — and definitely didn’t feel safe.

Nine years later, and it’s safe to say Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, with many film fans desperate to traverse the wasteland once again. Miller’s new film takes us back in time to witness the origins of Fury Road‘s Imperator Furiosa, this time played by Anya Taylor-Joy, as she is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus (Chris Hemsworth).

Racing across the red desert they come across the Citadel, ruled by The Immortan Joe (Lachy Hulme). As the two warlords vie for supremacy, Furiosa plots her means of escape. Alongside the returning characters, we know to expect more of Fury Road‘s hyper-saturated, high-contrast cinematography, ear-drum testing automobile chases, and lunatic action orchestrated by one of cinema’s master conductors.
