A new movie still of "Mad Max: Fury Road" has been released. It features Tom Hardy in a rugged look. In the new poster, he can be seen carrying a limp body on his shoulder. He appears to be wearing a muzzle, with chains hanging around his body. He is also holding a gun in his one hand and can be seen keenly looking at something. The still also features an armoured vehicle.

The first look of the film was released in July. It showed Theron and Hardy sporting rigid, determined looks, as they both carried heavy-duty weapons. "Mad Max: Fury Road" is a post-apocalyptic action film and it features Hardy in the titular role. It is the fourth film in the "Mad Max's" franchise and follows the story of damaged road warrior, Max and a badass commander, Furiosa. Set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, Max helps Furiosa, cross the desert. Charlize Theron plays Furiosa in the film. Hardy and Theron shot the film over the period of seven months in the desert of Namibia. "It was mental in a brilliant way. You have no concrete, no coffee shops. We were in the middle of a sandpit," Hardy said to Entertainment Weekly (EW) about the film's shooting location. Directed by George Miller, the film features very few digital effects and dialogues.

Miller told EW that he has kept the narrative simple and "linear." The film is 110-minute long and has a lot of intense action. The first trailer of the film was revealed in July at Comic Con, It received more than 4 million views in two days. Laced with powerful narrative, the film's teaser immediately transports the viewers to an ominous world, where ultramodern warriors are seen trudging across the sun-baked desert.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" is set to release on May 15, 2015. It also stars Nicholas Hoult as Nux, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Immortan Joe and Nathan Jones as Rictus Erectus. Doug Mitchell, George Miller and P.J. Voeten have produced the film. The first trailer of the film can be seen below.
