James Franco's Mad Max Ripoff

Lionsgate has released a trailer for James Franco’s Mad Max-style sci-fi thriller Future World, co-starring Suki Waterhouse, Milla Jovovich, Lucy Liu, Method Man, and Snoop Dogg.

The film follows a superpowered cyborg (Waterhouse) who fights grimy henchmen and tries to save the world that is ruled by Jovovich and Franco.

Franco co-directed the film with Bruce Thierry Cheung (The Color of Time). Future World opens in theaters on May 25th. Here’s the very first trailer for the movie with far more references than original ideas, with the generic title and borrowed aesthetic.
