Warner Bros. has given George Miller's action sequel Mad Max: Fury Road a May 15, 2015 release date.

According to the director,

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

Tom Hardy is starring as Mad Max with Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Nathan Jones co-starring. Mel Gibson will make a cameo, appearing as The Drifter.

George Miller is working on two new films that are planned to be shot back to back. This film and Mad Max: Furiosa, which will be released sometime immediately after.
