The Mad Max canon is shaky at best, and there's really no set chronology that's ever explicitly established (or really needed) over the course of the four

If this depiction of space is correct, then like any computer, there is an inherent limit to the universe’s data storage and processing capacity.

"Obviously I’m very much a self-confessed fan of science fiction and genre cinema but part of me looks at society as it is now and just thinks we’ve been infantilised by our own taste. Now we’re essentially all consuming very childish things – comic books, superheroes. Adults are watching this stuff, and taking it seriously.

It is a kind of dumbing down, in a way, because it’s taking our focus away from real-world issues. Films used to be about challenging, emotional journeys or moral questions that might make you walk away and re-evaluate how you felt about … whatever.

Now we’re walking out of the cinema really not thinking about anything, other than the fact that the Hulk just had a fight with a robot."

People got a little mad at this - io9 ran a really defensive piece about it that included this bit of reasoning: 

"It’s internally inconsistent to say that adults are taking “childish” things seriously, and say that this is making us dumber."

Okay...

Anyway, he's right, and anyone with even a modicum of self-awareness would know this.
(Also he confirms the next TREK is called STAR TREK BEYOND)
