Roaring out of the Sundance Film Festival's Park City at Midnight section on its BMX bike, Turbo Kid has debuted a trailer that sends audiences in the post-apocalyptic world of 1997.
Complete with neon colors and synth-filled music, producers Ant Timpson (The ABCs of Deaths 1 and 2) and Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun) bring the '90s aesthetic to a nuclear winter. The film stars Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside, Aaron Jeffery and Edwin Wright.
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.
Turbo Kid is directed Anouk Whissell, François Simard, Yoann-Karl Whissell (RKSS). Check out the trailer below.
