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.
