Our favorite movie of that year struck a chord with movie fans all over the world, managing to appeal to action movie junkies and cineastes alike with its inventive filmmaking, wild performances, and rich attention to theme and detail. It remains one of the best movies I’ve seen in a theater in the past decade. So yeah, we’d welcome another entry in the series…and so would star Tom Hardy, who says he’s just waiting for someone to call him.

Foreign filmmakers blatantly ripping off Hollywood movies is a tradition with a rich and storied history. Name an American film that had a sizable cultural impact over the past fifty years and you are guaranteed to find an unofficial Turkish or Italian remake lurking somewhere on the fringes of the industry. While modern copyright laws have forced these low-budget rip-offs to get a little more creative in how they steal from larger movies, they still exist, offering a fascinating look at how other cultures absorb and interpret American cinema.
Now, China is adding to this glorious tradition with Mad Shelia, a Mad Max: Fury Road rip-off so shameless that it steals the original’s poster as well as its aesthetic and title.

There’s a lot to love about George Miller’s Best Picture nominated action adventure Mad Max: Fury Road. Every facet of the film is impressive, but undoubtedly one of the coolest elements of the film are the post-apocalyptic vehicles that all the characters right around in. There are classic hot rods turned into fast-moving tanks, semi-trucks turned into death machines in eighteen wheels, and that vehicle with the Doof Warrior that is essentially a mobile metal concert from a Dr. Seuss nightmare.
But what if a bunch of other famous vehicles from film and television got a Mad Max makeover? What would cars like the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo or even the staircase truck from Arrested Development look like if they were modified to look like vehicles from the Wasteland? Illustrator Scott Park has answers to all those questions and plenty more with a cool new set of drawings that you can check out after the jump. Read More »
According to director George Miller, the best version of Mad Max: Fury Road is the black and white version.

Let’s just cut to the chase: the internet can be a big, stupid echo chamber where the wrong information travels like like flames through a dry forest. Or, in this case, like flames across a Warboy convoy soaked in precious guzzoline. Director George Miller has been talking about a making a fifth film in his iconic post-apocalyptic action franchise since before Mad Max: Fury Road came out. And when everyone realized that Fury Road was nothing short of a masterpiece, he started chatting about potential sequels in every single interview.
So there was something fishy about him suddenly saying that he was done making Mad Max movies. And now we know the reason for that particular odor: he was misquoted.
