Shirtless men braved the morning chill to shoot some promo material atop the “War Rig” for the new film, appropriately titled, “Fury Road”.

The insane armoured truck has been parked on the Cahill Expressway, which has been closed off to cars and pedestrians and will remain so until 1pm. It’s part of a fleet of vehicles from the movie which is currently moving about the city – including a gathering in front of the Opera House — before the film’s premiere tonight.

Here’s some pics tweeted by onlookers and media this morning:
