The long-awaited "Mad Max: Fury Road" will be bringing dystopian motor mayhem to the San Diego Comic Con this weekend, and a new poster shows just how desolate the world of Mad Max has gotten. 

The George Miller-directed sequel/reboot stars Tom Hardy as Max -- stepping in for original star Mel Gibson -- and Charlize Theron.

The sun-bleached poster was unveiled on the film's twitter, and it shows off one of Miller's legendary suped-up Outback roadsters, with a lone figure (Hardy?) beside it, featuring the sardonic tagline "What a lovely day."

Take a look here:

It also stars Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" opens May 15, 2015.
