Filmmaker George Miller's much-awaited movie Furiosa will have its world premiere at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival. The movie, the latest installment in Miller's famed film franchise Mad Max, is a prequel to the 2015 hit Mad Max: Fury Road, which also had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Officially titled Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, the organisers said the new movie will be screened Out of Competition at the Grand Theatre Lumiere at the Palais des Festivals on May 15. Furiosa marks Miller's return to the iconic dystopian world he created more than 30 years ago with the Mel Gibson-led Mad Max films and then in Fury Road, which featured Tom Hardy in the title role and Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa.

The new movie is a standalone action-adventure headlined by Anya Taylor-Joy, who takes over the role of Furiosa. It also features Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke in pivotal roles. "The idea of this prequel has been with me for over a decade. I couldn't be more thrilled to return to the Festival de Cannes and Anya, Chris and Tom to share Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. There is no better place than La Croisette to experience this film with audiences on the world stage," Miller said. Set more than a decade before the events of the post-apocalyptic Fury Road, the story follows a young Furiosa (Taylor-Joy), who is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus, played by Hemsworth.
