China Is Even Knocking Off Movies Now. Here’s Mad Max.

Hmm, the trailer for this ‘Mad Sheila’ movie looks familiar...

As we’ve pointed out in the past, there’s no greater indication a product has hit it big than the creation of a Chinese knockoff version of said product, service or art.

After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Given the looks of a trailer for a film called Mad Shelia, we’d say George Miller, Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy and the rest of the crew behind Mad Max: Fury Road should feel flattered indeed. In the preview for the knockoff Chinese movie — which even includes appropriately bad English subtitles — a young lady we presume to be Sheila does her best Max Rockatansky impression.

It’s a despicably blatant ripoff to its very core.

That we would 100% watch if presented with the opportunity.
