Mad Max,is also set after a nuclear war of somesort(at least Mad Max 2 and 3)which seems to be popular right now in video games
As a post-apocalyptic fan boi, I had to give a minor correction. Mad Max is not post-nuclear war, but a world where oil has run out.
ahh,i just presumed it was nuclear when Max is telling the kids in Beyond Thunderdome about the planes falling out of the sky,and that there used to be places called cities,not seen it for awhile though...i knew MM2 was all about scrounging for oil,but i just thought that's what it had come to because of the war
guess my MM DVDs are to come down off the shelf soon
apparently the upcoming movie is a prequel,on how Max became 'mad'..and his wife dying etc...which really then is just a remake of the first film,which was a hit all over the world except U.S,that's why Mad Max 2 was just called 'The Road Warrior' in the states(which funnily enough our DVDs in the UK are now called Mad Max 2:The Road Warrior).... probably why they wanna remake it
either that or its a restart,which seems to be all popular these days
just found out Mel Gibson rejected Mad Max 4 script in 2008
