It’s been 36 years since the first in the Mad Max film franchise hit the silver screen – and now its back with Mad Max: Fury Road out now at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

In the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape, humanity is on its knees.

Everyone is fighting for the necessities of life but there are two rebels who just might be able to restore order and peace.

There’s Max (Tom Hardy) 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 that unfolded.

And then there is Furiosa, (Charlize Therone) 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 in one piece.

We finally manage to go beyond Thunderdome as the rebellious twosome team up with a clan trying to cross the Australian desert which leads to all manner of trouble.

The man behind the original trilogy George Miller, who is recent years has been better known for the likes of Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City, returns to take charge of the post-apocalyptic, gas-guzzling wasteland, as director and co-writer.
