Titled “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” and helmed by franchise creator George Miller, the movie is a prequel to the 2015 blockbuster “Mad Max: Fury Road.” This film delves into the backstory of Imperator Furiosa, originally portrayed by Charlize Theron. The narrative spans about 15 years of Furiosa's early life, with Anya Taylor-Joy taking on the lead role. Chris Hemsworth plays her adversary, Dementus. Notably, Furiosa is seen driving a newer version of the iconic War Rig, a semi-truck with a 617 hp engine and a torque rating of 2,050 lb-ft.

Dementus faces off against the War Rig with a diverse array of vehicles in "Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga." One standout is a chariot pulled by three motorcycles, with the lead bike powered by a massive radial engine likely salvaged from an aircraft. The video also features a Plymouth Valiant, a hybrid Volkswagen Beetle-motorcycle, and a motorcycle modified with a snowmobile track for its rear wheel. The showstopper is the Six Foot, a Mack DM-800 transformed into a monster truck, likely the centerpiece of Dementus' fleet.

Notably, Max Rockatansky and his Pursuit Special, a 1973 Ford Falcon GT, are absent from the film. "Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga" is set to premiere on May 24.
