I’ve been very content admiring the explosive action in all of the Mad Max: Fury Road promos, but Warner Bros. just unveiled a brand new featurette that reveals some key character details, and it’s certainly nice to learn a bit more about what’s driving our hero. Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) is a former cop who’s completely broken after losing his family. However, when Max crosses paths with Charlize Theron‘s Furiosa, he agrees to join her cause to help a group of girls reach a safe place and escape Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne).
You can check out the new Mad Max: Fury Road featurette for yourself below. The film is due in theaters in 3D on May 15th and also stars Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nathan Jones and Abbey Lee.

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.
