The actors were on their way to The Jimmy Kimmel Show and a masked man who looked straight out of the Mad Max universe drove the gold vehicle.

In order to achieve the spectacle, parts of Hollywood Boulevard were shut down to allow for Anya and Chris’ grand entrance.

While the full reviews won’t be in until closer to the May 24 release date, early reactions to Furiosa from a wide swath of film critics is quite strong.

The new film from director George Miller is a prequel to his lauded 2015 blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road, providing an origin story for the title character, played by Charlize Theron in the previous film.

Anya takes over as the younger Furiosa, which is set between 15 and 20 years before the events of Mad Max: Fury Road.
