Chinese Answer to Mad Max: Fury Road
Check out this trailer for upcoming Mad Max ‘homage’ Mad Sheila.
The Chinese are not know for their feminazi-ism, so I’m not particularly worried about them switching out the male lead for a hot looking asian girl. The decision to call her Sheila also demonstrates a refreshing level of self-awareness, not to mention cultural awareness – I love it when good ol’ Mick Taylor from Wolf Creek goes around calling women “Sheilas.” And you can bet that this particular Sheila won’t have had her head shaved either. I was amazed when Fury Road didn’t get a theatrical release in Mainland China, it being exactly the kind of spectacle Chinese audiences love, but I guess it must have found a fanbase for this to be coming out. I will definitely check this out and review it in time.

    Come on now, use you brain. China is authoritarian. Everything that is a critique against the state or may promote ideas of rebellion is banned in the cinema of China. Mad Max Fury road in it’s core is a revolutionary story.

      True, but it was available to view on demand on TV, so it wasn’t banned outright.
