‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’ Poster Puts Anya Taylor-Joy At The Center Of A Desert Nightmare

A recently-released trailer finally gave us what we had been so desperately wanting for so long; the first footage from Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. George Miller’s prequel to the stone cold classic Mad Max: Fury Road has Anya Taylor-Joy in the role made famous by Charlize Theron, a younger version of Imperator Furiosa. And now we’re getting an even better look at Furiosa in the post-apocalyptic wasteland in a brand new poster.

The image features Furiosa, along with other characters populating the desert nightmare of Miller’s creation. While a prequel, some things remain the same, such as Furiosa’s prosthetic arm. Not to mention that deadly scowl of hers. We also see an unrecognizable Chris Hemsworth as Warlord Dementus. We also see the return of Nathan Jones as Rictus Erectus, brother to Warlord Immortan Joe, who was previously played by Hugh Keays-Byrne. It’s unclear who is playing the younger version of Joe, but we do know that Tom Burke has a major part to play and that could be it.

It’s amazing how Miller has revitalized the Mad Max franchise, but that’s what having an all-time classic will do for ya. While the buzz for Furiosa isn’t on the same level, the excitement is definitely there to see if Miller can top himself. He’s set an incredibly high bar.

Here’s the synopsis: Snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers, young Furiosa 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. As the two tyrants fight for dominance, Furiosa soon finds herself in a nonstop battle to make her way home.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga storms into theaters on May 24th 2024.
