Following the first trailer that debuted back in January, Epic Pictures Group has released a new trailer for Turbo Kid, which has been given an August 28 release date. The film had its world premiere at Sundance this January, before winning the Audience Award at this year's South By Southwest festival. As you can see in the latest trailer, this apocalyptic movie, set in the year 1997, is one of the most unique, gory, violent, action-packed and insane releases hitting theaters this summer.
In a ruined post-apocalyptic world, the orphaned Kid (Munro Chambers) 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 (Laurence Leboeuf) 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 (Michael Ironside), his buzzsaw-handed sidekick Skeletron (Edwin Wright), and their vicious masked army.
Bolstered by a pitch-perfect synth score, and clever and cheeky period details, co-directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell create a raucous retro-futuristic action comedy that pays homage to '80s movies great and small, while adding their own flair with inventive and exuberant violence and gore (prepare for disemboweling by exercycle). Marcello Bezina, Patrick Kerton, Evan Manoukian and Romano Orzari round out the supporting cast of Turbo Kid, which is produced by Ant Timpson (The ABCs of Death 1 & 2, Housebound) and Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun). Check out the latest footage to get ready for Turbo Kid, in theaters August 28.
