Watch the bloody hilarious trailer for Turbo Kid, out this August!

When TURBO KID played SXSW earlier this year, people I know who saw it couldn't stop raving about it. It's a crazy mix of blood-drenched post-apocalyptic action flick, Charles Band movie and earnest coming-of-age story. When you watch the trailer it should come as no surprise it's from the producers of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN. Adding to the awesomeness: it features Michael Ironside as a maniacal, eye-patch sporting bad guy! Bring this movie to me now!

Sadly, I'll have to wait a tad; the film doesn't hit theaters and VOD until August 28th. That seems a lifetime away...

The plot:

In a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland. Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid's parents, now controls the Wasteland's most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus' gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents' death and get the girl of his dreams. 

Oh, that old story!

TURBO KID was directed by Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell.
