The trailer is the creation of Ezequiel Lopez, and it combines the narration and sound from the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer, with scenes from the frenetic automotive classic from director Stanley Kramer, It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
The trailer puts Spencer Tracy — in his next-to-last film role — in the role of Max, and it is exactly perfect.
It is a must-see for multiple reasons: the cast is essentially everyone who was in comedy circa 1963, featuring Milton Berle, Jonathan Winters, Sid Caeser, Mickey Rooney, Ethel Merman and Dick Shawn. The cameos in the movie are endless, featuring everyone from a four-second clip of Jerry Lewis to a barely seen slice of film with silent film madman Buster Keaton.
The car chases? EPIC.
The narration in the trailer meshes like a Swiss watch, and the car chase scenes go from madcap to sinister with nothing other than a change of soundtrack.
Spencer Tracy is Max, Sid Caeser is Immortan Joe, and Ethel Merman is Furiosa. Really, do you need any more convincing?
Ok then, the “What a lovely day!” scene alone is worth waiting the entire trailer for.
This is exactly what we were promised when Al Gore invented the internet. The happy day has finally arrived.
