Anya Taylor-Joy Transforms for Battle Against Chris Hemsworth in ‘Furiosa’ Trailer

Anya Taylor-Joy is gearing up to seek vengeance against Chris Hemsworth in the latest trailer for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

Warner Bros. released the new footage Tuesday from George Miller’s dystopian action epic that hits theaters May 24. The fifth film in the Mad Max franchise, Furiosa is a prequel to 2015’s Oscar-winning hit Mad Max: Fury Road and stars Taylor-Joy as Imperator Furiosa, played in the previous movie by Charlize Theron.

The new film centers on Furiosa (Taylor-Joy), who is abducted in her younger years by Warlord Dementus (Hemsworth) and prepares herself to find her way back home to the Green Place of Many Mothers.

“As a child, my world was forever changed,” Taylor-Joy says in the trailer. “My mother was magnificent, and he took it all from me.” She goes on to say, “My childhood, my mother — I want them back.”

Later, Hemsworth can be heard exclaiming, “Where are you going, so full of hope? There is no hope!”

Miller, who originated the franchise with 1979’s Mad Max that starred Mel Gibson, directed Furiosa from a script he wrote with Nico Lathouris. Miller and Doug Mitchell serve as producers.

Mad Max: Fury Road revitalized the franchise in 2015 with a cast that included Theron, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough and Zoë Kravitz. The film surpassed $375 million at the global box office and collected six Oscars.

Taylor-Joy’s recent credits include a brief appearance in Dune: Part Two and a voice role as Princess Peach in the 2023 hit The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Hemsworth starred in last year’s Extraction 2 for Netflix.
