Hardy in for more Mad Max movies; hear the first song from the soundtrack

While many of us are still preparing our bodies for the release of George Miller's MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, there’s a very good possibility that we could be seeing even more from his apocalyptic wasteland, as Tom Hardy revealed in a recent interview with Esquire that he has signed on for three more films. Ho-ly-shit. The catch, however, is that it all comes down to “figures and how things are perceived,” he told them. It is a business after all and they can’t make movies that no one wants to see, so there's that. While the initial reaction to the trailers have been overwhelmingly positive, there’s always that shitty scenario where no one shows up to see FURY ROAD, thus no sequels get made.

As far as the film we’re about to see hit theaters on May 15th, Hardy had some encouragingly batshit crazy things to say about it. "We were in the middle of nowhere, so far away from the studio system that [Warner Bros] can’t really see what’s going on, and just getting things to and from the set was a nightmare. We’d lose half a vehicle in sand and have to dig it out. It was just this unit in the middle of x-million square-kilometres of desert, and then this group of lunatics in leathers, like a really weird S&M party, or a Hell’s Angels convention. It was like Cirque du Soleil meets fucking Slipknot.” Awesome.

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. It opens May 15, 2015.
