Yesterday we brought you a clip from the Sundance selection TURBO KID, which had its World Premiere last night, and today we've got a very cool teaser for the post-apocalyptic flick to share with ya.

TURBO KID is a post-apocalyptic, BMX-powered, blood-splattered love story that follows the epic journey of an orphaned outcast reluctant to be a hero in the wasteland of an alternate future. The film actually started out as a contest entry for the T segment of ABC'S OF DEATH. It lost to Lee Hardcastle’s "T is for Toilet", but caught the attention of producer Ant Timpson, who asked whether the directing trio of Anouk Whissell, François Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissell might consider making their short into a full-fledged feature.

Decades after the apocalypse, the world has been left in a permanent nuclear winter. A lonely young orphan called THE KID roams the wasteland scavenging for comic books and paraphernalia from the 80s. He trades knick-knacks with the dodgy bar keep BAGU at the nearby trading post for fresh water, the most valuable commodity in this land forsaken by toxins. After bumping into arm-wrestling champion FREDERICK, the Kid sees a glimpse of the exciting world he’s been hiding from all these years. His routine existence is disrupted when he runs into the mysterious (and highly excitable) APPLE. Just as Apple starts to bring The Kid out of his isolated world with unflappable humour and goofy behaviour, their relationship is forever changed when she is kidnapped by a BOUNTY HUNTER working for ZEUS; the sadistic and overly-garrulous leader of the Wasteland.

TURBO KID stars Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside, Aaron Jeffery and Edwin Wright. The film is produced by EMAfilms’ Anne-Marie Gélinas and Benoit Beaulieu and T&A Films’ Ant Timpson and Tim Riley and is executive produced by Jason Eisener (HOBO WITH A SHOT GUN), Epic Pictures Group’s Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson; Raven Banner’s Michael Paszt and Curious Films’ Matt Noonan.
