Warner Bros. is proceeding carefully with their plans for a shared cinematic universe based around their DC Comics properties (a lot of which rides on next March’s release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) to compete with the unassailable Marvel Studios. They had originally planned a sequel to 2013’s Superman reboot Man of Steel to kick off the summer of 2018, but the tentatively-titled Man of Steel 2 was taken off the roster as James Wan’s Aquaman moved into position as Warner/DC’s big 2018 summer tentpole release. Meanwhile, a solo Batman reboot starring Ben Affleck has been dated for November of that year.

Unlike Marvel Studios’ blockbuster line-ups, which are usually set in stone but remain subject to the occasional alteration, the DC Comics Shared Cinematic Universe release schedule appears to be in constant flux. Even though Man of Steel 2 is not in active development at Warner Bros. for the moment, that can always change, and fast.

Mad Max: Fury Road

In on of this week’s videos gone viral, a bunch of people re-created a Mad Max chase sequence using GoKarts, a truck, a paintball gun, and some sort of mini clown car version of Max’s Interceptor, and they do it quite awesomely.

The short looks to be heavily inspired by George Miller’s recent hit Mad Max: Fury Road, and it clearly is, but in fact the video was actually sponsored by Warner Brothers Games in anticipation of the release of the upcoming Mad Max video game that’s set to be released on September 1st.

You can see the short along with a behind the scenes video below.

George Miller‘s long-overdue (as in three decades overdue) post-apocalyptic adventure sequel Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the best movies of the summer, if not the year (read Adam Frazier’s review here).

Mad Max Video Game

A month ago we got our first real preview of the gameplay of Mad Max, an upcoming video game from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios. Now a new trailer has been released that’s more cinematic—as Mad Max: Fury Road drives toward $220 million worldwide at the box office—focusing on the story players will be taking on.

In the game Max finds himself beaten and without a vehicle after a gang led by the main villain, Scrotus, attacks him, leaving him to find a way to build a new vehicle with the help of an expert mechanic lovingly named Chumbucket. Because, as Max puts it, “Out here, a man with no wheels is a man with no hope.”

You can check out the story trailer for Mad Max below.

Mad Max: Fury Road

The long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road finally released last week, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. While critically successful the movie didn’t dominate at the box office, finishing in second place domestically behind Pitch Perfect 2 its first weekend. It also had to deal with the juggernaut Avengers: Age of Ultron, which finished third in its third weekend of release and brought its grand total to $1.1 billion worldwide.

Despite the big time competition, Fury Road has still managed a strong $110 million worldwide so far—$3 million more than Pitch Perfect 2 currently has made thanks to better numbers in foreign markets—on its $150 million budget, so naturally fans will wonder whether or not there will be a sequel.

According to director George Miller, there will indeed be more movies, and he’s even shared the title of the next one. You can see what he had to say below.

Mad Max: Fury Road Movie Review Charlize Theron

Mad Max: Fury Road
Director: George Miller
Writer(s): George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 120 Minutes
Release Date: May 15, 2015

“Oh, what a day! What a lovely day!”

Mad Max: Fury Road is nothing short of a goddamn masterpiece. This is an epic of grease, gunpowder, and gasoline – a feminist, post-apocalyptic Western on wheels, all shiny and chrome. This is action cinema in its purest, most exhilarating form.

Co-written and directed by George Miller, Fury Road finds The Road Warrior himself, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), pursued by Warboys, a bloodthirsty clan of marauders under the command of the tyrannical Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). The leather-clad maniacs capture Max and haul him off to the Citadel, a massive stronghold where the warlord rules over the poor, sickly wretches of the wasteland.

Within the Citadel, Max becomes a blood bag for Nux (Nicholas Hoult), a wounded Warboy. Max hangs upside down, his blood draining into Nux, who wants nothing more than to die a glorious soldier’s death and be ushered into shiny, chrome-colored Valhalla.

After a major energy crisis cripples the world’s economy, law and order gives way to complete and total anarchy. The Outback is reduced to a desolate wasteland, roamed by motorcycle gangs who scavenge the lands for fuel and terrorize the few good people left. As a result, Main Force Patrol, an out-run police force, has been created to patrol the lands to uphold the remains of law and justice.

A berserk motorcycle gang member named Nightrider (Vincent Gil) kills a rookie officer and attempts to outrun the MFP in a stolen Pursuit Special. Enter Max, who engages the deranged sicko in a high-speed chase that ends in a fiery crash.

Mad Max Video Game

Fortunately for those excited to see what a current-generation Mad Max video game will look like don’t have to wait nearly as long as fans of the movie series have waited for Mad Max: Fury Road to arrive in theaters (which is next month, by the way).

A gameplay overview trailer for the game has been released online, and it offers a great look at what potential players can expect. It doesn’t look like they tried to reinvent the wheel or anything—a little bit of Tomb Raider or Uncharted, some Batman: Arkham combat, and of course a dash of developer Avalanche Studios’ other game series, Just Cause, all set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and we’re good to go.

You can read more about the game and check out the first gameplay preview below.
