The Chinese Mad Max Ripoff - Mad Sheila

M A D   S H E I L A
[Source: blastr] While we wait for that rumored Imperator Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron) Mad Max: Fury Road movie prequel to hit the road (pun intended), we may have the next best thing — a Chinese movie that totally rips off George Miller’s Mad Max.

Titled Mad Shelia, the movie takes us to a post-apocalyptic dune-covered wasteland that looks an awful lot like the world of Max Rockatansky. Complete with the movie’s heroes being attacked by a convoy of armored vehicles, motorcycles and 4X4s, and villains plucked from Miller's world.

The trailer below plays a lot like the 2015 blockbuster movie that nabbed an Academy Award nomination for Best Motion Picture. Not sure Mad Shelia will get nominated for anything (well, perhaps for best cheesy movie that’s so cheesy it's good), but you never know! I mean, it looks like a lot of crazy low-budget fun. Anywhoooo. Check it out below, and be sure to take a look at the movie poster which also totally rips off the "What a Lovely Day" Fury Road poster.
