Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) puts on his best Australian accent to narrate this new action-packed television promo for director George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road -- the fourth entry in the post-apocalyptic movie franchise that began way back when in 1979, with Mel Gibson in the titular role of Max Rockatansky.

The fiery, actiony 45-second extended TV spot -- released by Warner Bros. -- is titled "Retaliate." It’s actually filled to the brim with a bunch of brand-new scenes, and it’s a total thrill to watch as Hardy and co-star Charlize Theron fight for their lives. "My name is Max. My world is reduced to a single instinct. Survive." Have a look:

Here’s a very detailed synopsis of the upcoming sci-fi movie:

Mad Mad: 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.

Mad Max: Fury Road is set to open in theaters on May 15, 2015.
