The December teaser for George Miller’s newest installment in the Mad Max series looked pretty crazy but the newest trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road is all sorts of epic. Intense imagery flashes shots of “Mad” Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) in an all out gang war over scarce natural resources on a postapocalyptic planet. He joins Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) as they escape across the sprawling desert.

Check out the insane synopsis:

The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

And…Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

Also in the movie: Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Nathan Jones (Troy), Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough (Magic Mike), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Abbey Lee and Courtney Eaton.

The American release for Mad Max is set for May 15.
