'Turbo Kid' Brings '80s Nostalgia, All the Awesome

We covered the strangely awesome and amazing "Turbo Kid" previously, following its Sundance Film Festival premiere, but as the film's August 28 release date approaches, an all-new trailer has arrived -- and holy heck does it make us giddy with glee.

Filled with flashy colors, an appropriately synthetic soundtrack and incredibly ridiculous, over-the-top action and violence, "Turbo Kid" like "Mad Max" a la an live-action anime fever dream and we want it now. Check out the official synopsis and the trailer below.

It’s 1997. In a ruined post-apocalyptic world, the orphaned Kid survives on his own through drought-ridden nuclear winter, traversing the Wasteland on his BMX, scavenging for scraps to trade for a scant supply of water. When his perpetually chipper, pink-haired new best friend Apple is kidnapped by a minion of evil overlord Zeus, the Kid summons the courage of his comic book hero and prepares to deliver turbocharged justice to Zeus, his buzzsaw-handed sidekick Skeletron, and their vicious masked army.
