A week and a half after the trailer release, a poster for George Miller’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga has been unveiled
Nine years after the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, the Mad Max franchise will be getting a new entry with the May 24, 2024 theatrical release of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga – a film which isn’t about the Mad Max character, but is actually a Fury Road prequel that focuses on the Furiosa character, who was played by Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road and is now played by Anya Taylor-Joy. A trailer for Furiosa made its way online a week and a half ago, and now a new poster has been unveiled as well. The trailer can be seen in the embed above, and the poster can be found at the bottom of this article.
Directed by Miller from a screenplay he wrote with Nico Lathouris, Furiosa has the following synopsis: As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by the Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.
Taylor-Joy (The Witch) is joined in the cast by Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tom Burke (C.B. Strike).
If you’re anxious to see more Mad Max, there’s some good news: Miller has confirmed that he has another Mad Max story written, which would presumably be the Mad Max: The Wasteland story that he has referenced here and there ever since Fury Road was released. Now that Furiosa is making its way out into the world, here’s hoping that Miller or a protégé (Miller has said he has three different directors in mind that he would like to see make movies set in the world of his franchise) will get Mad Max: The Wasteland into production sooner than later.

I don’t have a great deal of interest in the Furiosa character, but I’m sure Furiosa is going to be very cool.
