See Tom Hardy In Mad Max Reboot Trailer
British star takes on Mel Gibson's iconic role in revived action movie franchise...
Tom Hardy is seen in action in the first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road.
There are shades of Bane from The Dark Knight Rises as the British actor is seen restrained with a metal grille over his mouth in one of the shots.
The 36-year-old takes up the mantle of Max - the character made famous by Mel Gibson in director George Miller's post-apocalyptic action movies.
And Miller is back behind the camera for the reboot, which has been in the pipeline for 15 years or more.
Also starring Charlize Theron, the film is billed by Miller as a "105-minute chase scene through the wasteland".
It is set for release next year.
