LOS ANGELES: Hollywood
One of the most anticipated film premieres prior to the Cannes Film Festival had a huge Hollywood red carpet this week, Mad Max Fury Road. Conceived by Australian, George Miller, a writer, producer, director, former medical doctor and creator of the original Mad Max franchise. The black carpet was covered by tents in anticipation of light rain, but that didn’t stop the A-List cast members as well as other guests from attending. Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoe Kravitz, Mel Gibson (the original Mad Max), Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough (granddaughter of Elvis Presley), Courtney Eaton and numerous other celebrity guests all walked the carpet.
“Several years after a series of catastrophic worldwide calamities, Max, a former highway patrolman, meets Furiosa, a woman attempting to cross an immense desert. With her are former female captives collectively known as the Five Wives; they are on the run from the tyrannical Immortan Joe and his bloodthirsty gang the War Boys. Their only hope of reaching safety is Max and his expansive knowledge of the desert’s many dangers. When Max is captured by Joe, his only chance of escape depends on Furiosa and her band of liberated women, each of whom is considered a precious object vital to the continued survival of the human race.”
