In a post-apocalyptic world, where water and gasoline have long since dried-up, a prince from the oasis (one of the last known safe-havens) must venture out to find medicine for the ailing queen (Lucy Liu), but along the way he gets mixed up with the warlord (James Franco) and his robot Ash (Suki Waterhouse), which leads to a daring journey through the desolate wastelands.What the hell is going on here?
Why does Future World look like a cross between a 1980's direct-to-VHS post-apocalyptic shlockfest and a Mad Max fan film?
Is this some, sly, meta, parody from the excellent James Franco as a follow-up to The Disaster Artist?
Future World is - bravely - scheduled for a cinema release on May 25... the day Solo, the new Star Wars film, opens.
There has to be a joke here, something I'm missing...
