The new issue of Empire magazine features Tom Hardy as the title character from Mad Max: Fury Road.
The magazine actually has two covers. One features a closeup of Max, and the other a full body shot:
Hardy will take on the role of “Mad” Max Rockatansky, played by Mel Gibson in the original Mad Max trilogy, for Fury Road. Mad Max creator and director of the original trilogy, George Miller, returns for the latest installment. The film opens May 15.
"Mad Max: Fury Road" is the fourth film of George Miller's Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There's Max (played by Tom Hardy from "The Dark Knight Rises"), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And… Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from "Prometheus"), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
