Now that we officially know what it's about (sorta), we're seeing even more post-apocalyptic goodness from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road, the long-awaited fourth installment in director George Miller's beloved franchise. And this time, we get a glimpse at the props.

In case you missed it last week, here's the brief synopsis straight from Miller himself.

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) stars in the title role, while Charlize Theron (Prometheus) will co-star as the Imperator Furiosa. The cast also includes this impressive lineup:

Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max, Sleeping Beauty) as Immortan Joe; and Nathan Jones (Conan the Barbarian) as Rictus Erectus...

Collectively known as The Wives, Zoë Kravitz (X-Men: First Class) plays Toast, Riley Keough (Magic Mike) is Capable, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) is Splendid. They are joined by supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw as The Dag and Courtney Eaton as Fragile, both of whom are making their big screen debuts. Also featured in the movie are Josh Helman as Slit, Jennifer Hagan as Miss Giddy, and singer/songwriter/performer iOTA as Coma-Doof Warrior...

The cast is rounded out by well-known Australian actors John Howard, Richard Carter, supermodel Megan Gale, Angus Sampson, Joy Smithers, Gillian Jones, Melissa Jaffer and Melita Jurisic.

Check out the photos below for a look at even more devastating vehicles from the wasteland, not to mention an awesome knife gauntlet. And hey, it wouldn't be a Mad Max flick without a disgusting-looking hockey mask.

What do you think? Is Miller taking his road-warrior-filled world to a new level here?
