“Mad Max: Fury Road” is one of the hits of the summer, drawing praise from far and wide, and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” promises to be a huge theater draw when it releases this coming winter.
So of course someone had the brilliant idea to mash the two blockbusters together into one over-the-top, dusty, explosive spectacle of its own.
Titled “Road Wars: The Imperator Strikes Back,” the trailer mashup is the work of seasoned film fiddler Krishna Shenoi, best known for his hilarious “Gravity” bonus scenes.
It’s somewhat shocking how well the two franchises work together, and it certainly helps that both movies feature lots of sand, but Shenoi’s ability to splice effects, characters, and vehicles from one trailer into the other is really what makes this mashup one for the ages.
