The month of May will bring the heat in more ways than one. Part of the reason is that Mad Max: Fury Road, an epic reboot of the 80s Australian dystopian sci-fi film series starring Mel Gibson.

Directed by George Miller (the writer and director behind the original films), viewers can bet that the aesthetic fans know and love will be maintained, while, of course, incorporating some modern techniques.

Actor Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) stars as Max Rockatansky, and Charlize Theron is his opposite, Imperator Furiosa. Both can be seen traversing a desert landscape in the high octane second trailer, in which you’ll also spot Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and more.

Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters on May 15. Meanwhile, it’s already been reported that Hardy has signed on to act in three more films.

See the trailer below.
