Mad Max: Fury Road Gets Nostalgic With a Legacy Trailer

The latest trailer for the Mad Max reboot features a nostalgic trip down Road Warrior and Thunderdome lane before making its way to the modern day take on one of the baddest post apocalyptic mother fuckers on the planet – Max.

You can definitely see resemblances between the original Mad Max movies and the new one, which is set to hit theaters on May 15, 2015, and will star Tom Hardy rather than the old and beat down Mel Gibson. It’s hard not to reflect on the awesomeness of Mel’s Mad Max movies while watching this trailer though, especially the scenes from the Thunderdome, which still evoke memories of Tina Turner for me to this day. In fact, I have “We don’t need another hero” on loop in my head as I write this piece and it will probably stay there for the rest of the day, and that’s quite fine with me.

Check out the Mad Max: Fury Road Legacy trailer above, and if you really want to get old school jam out to Tina’s epic theme song for Thunderdome below.
