Mad Max fans have a long wait before they see a Fury Road sequel—if one actually gets made at all. In the meantime, it’s time for Mad Shelia.

This Chinese action movie is a pretty obvious ripoff of the Mad Max franchise, complete with dieselpunk fetish costumes, desert landscapes, and souped-up cars. The trailer suggests it probably doesn’t share Fury Road‘s feminist themes, but it still looks fun as hell. 

It seems that post-apocalyptic car explosions are a universal draw.
