Mad Max: Fury Road is easily one of the best films of the year and the only blockbuster that looks like it will give it any competition this year is the long-awaited Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, due out in December. Considering both titles are some of the hottest genre films of the year, it makes sense that mashing them together into one supercut leads to a match made in geek heaven.
“Road Wars – The Imperator Strikes Back” is a stunning mashup trailer made by filmmaker Krishna Shenoi from Bangalore, India that takes the basic premise of Fury Road, but adds in Star Wars elements like X-Wings, Tie Fighters, and the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. We didn’t think there was a way to make Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa any cooler than she already is, but giving her a lightsaber to wield fits the bill nicely.
Check it out for yourself and like us, wallow in the disappointment that “Road Wars” is not a real film.
