Directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell—the mad minds behind Canadian collective RKSS—are ready to unleash their festival favorite onto the world with Turbo Kid, a retro-apocalyptic thriller set in 1997 dripping with ’80s nostalgia, BMX mayhem and blood splattered thrills. Their film swept through the festival circuit, winning the Midnighters Audience Award at Sundance back in January, and now it’s here with a new trailer and a release date.
If you dig your films to be particularly gooey and violent with an electro-synth heavy soundtrack, Turbo Kid is surely going to kick your ass. Watch the trailer below and look for Turbo Kid in theaters and VOD this August 28th!
In a post-apocalyptic future, The Kid, a young solitary scavenger obsessed with comic books must face his fears and become a reluctant hero when he meets a mysterious girl named Apple. Despite their efforts to keep to themselves, Zeus, the sadistic and self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland, plagues The Kid and Apple. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbocharged weapon, The Kid learns of justice and friendship and embarks on an incredible journey to rid the Wasteland of evil and save the girl of his dreams.
It stars Michael Ironside, Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Aaron Jeffery, Edwin Wright, and Romano Orzari.
