Nicholas Hoult was born four years after the third “Mad Max” film hit theaters in 1985, but that didn’t mean he missed out on the lasting influence of the adrenaline-fueled, post-apocalyptic saga.

“All these films I’ve seen, I suddenly saw where their ideas came from or where it all sprung from – the brilliant mind of George Miller,” he said.

Hoult, 25, talked to Reuters about the intensity of playing War Boy Nux in Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” out in U.S. theaters on Friday. Below are excerpts from the interview.

Q: The War Boys are willing to die for their leader. How did you connect with that mentality?

A: There was this interesting process behind the scenes, with Hugh Keays-Byrne who plays (leader) Immortan Joe. There would be about 150 stunt guys and there was a training center and gym where everyone would do group sessions where they would learn and feel what it meant to be a War Boy in that time. Hugh would come along and be the leader and he’d repeat nursery rhymes and everyone would chant with him and it became a little bit of this odd cult thing.

You’re thrust into this environment which is really immersive, then it kind of makes it easy to believe all those things.

Q: It’s almost as if you were brainwashed.

A: I got brainwashed. That’s what I’m trying to say.

Scoring one of the top openings of all time for a non-tentpole, Elizabeth Banks’ Pitch Perfect 2 launched to a massive $70.3 million at the North American box office, thanks to ardent female fans. And in only three days, it’s earned back more than twice its $29 million budget — and more than the first Pitch Perfect grossed in its entire domestic run ($65 million).

Overseas, Pitch Perfect 2 debuted to an equally stellar $38.1 million from 29 markets for a world total of $108.4 million, just shy of the $115 million earned all in by the original movie.

In North America, the Universal film easily overshadowed George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road in terms of sheer grosses, even if Fury Road opened to a respectable $44.4 million for an R-rated film. Together, the two movies helped deliver the biggest pre-Memorial Day weekend of all time ($183.4 million).

Internationally, Fury Road beat Pitch Perfect 2 overall with $65 million from 68 markets, putting its global debut at $109.4 million.

Males made up the vast majority of Mad Max’s audience domestically, while 46 percent were under the age of 25. (That’s not a bad turnout for a sequel to a film that opened in 1980.) The issue Fury Road faces is that it cost at least $150 million to make. Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow partnered on the film, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
