A teaser trailer has been released for the post-apocalyptic action comedy Turbo Kid, which debuted at Sundance on Monday.
The film comes courtesy of co-directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell, and is based upon their short film T is for Turbo, which was made for The ABCs of Death contest but lost out to T is for Toilet. Check out the first trailer after the official synopsis…
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 features a cast that includes Munro Chambers, Michael Ironside, Laurence Leboeuf, Aaron Jeffery and Edwin Wright.
