Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer

This is more like it!

Whereas the Star Wars trailer didn't hook me, this one completely did.  This looks, and more importantly feels, just like Mad Max and Road Warrior, two movies I love.  The whole thing might end up being a mess, but what I see in this two-plus minutes has me excited.  And there are a couple of reasons for that:

1)  The original director, George Miller, is involved.  I was unaware of this and had been disregarding all of the hype leading up to this movie as a result.  minus-10 experience points
(Something else pointed out to me online and also worth noting, Miller is 69 years old.  Well played, sir)

2)  practical effects, as pointed out to me by Jim Dietz, makes all the difference in the world.  There is a weight inherent within these scenes that can be lost when something is created through CGI.  I'm guessing Miller understands that.  Too bad others in Hollywood didn't take notice.

Now let's see if Miller & co. can stick the landing.
