I thought it was an 80s movie.
Wonder how the remake is going to fare. Same people behind the original are behind the remake.
The sequels ""The Road Warrior" and "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" came out in the 80s.
Maybe that's what I was thinking of. The new remake is a remake of the 1979 film.
If you're American, you probably thought MAD MAX was an '80s film because it was released in the US in the summer of 1980. The film came and went w/o much fanfare and it wasn't until the far superior ROAD WARRIOR came out in '82 and became a cult hit that there was renewed interest in MAD MAX. It was then re-released in '83 and did better box office the second time around.
