If this early clip is an indicator, Tom Hardy may have no problem making fans forget Mel Gibson, who starred as “Mad” Max Rockatansky in the original apocalyptic sci-fi saga back in 1980. The fourth film in the franchise is directed, produced and co-written by George Miller, the man behind the original.

Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also star in “Fury Road.”
