"Oh, what a day! What a lovely day!"

And what a lovely day it is, indeed. If your level of excitement for George Miller's MAD MAX: FURY ROAD has been through the roof as we edge closer to the films May 15 release, you'll probably be super stoked to learn that the MPAA has just hit the film with a hard R-rating. The reasoning for the R-rating? "For intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images." Now that gets my engine revving!

Here's the official synopsis for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD:

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton and Nicholas Hoult.

I don't think I could be any more stoked for this flick. It sounds utterly amazing and the trailers (which I've watched dozens of times each!) have done a rock solid job of convincing me that Miller is going to deliver something truly incredible with this one.

It opens May 15, 2015 and that date can't get here quick enough. FURY ROAD will own us all.
