Trailer: Turbo Kid


Back in January, Kurt posted a short teaser for the SXSW 2015 Audience Award Winner Turbo Kid. He noted then that while it was directed by three mostly unknown Canadian directors–Anouk Whissell, Fran├žois Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissell–it’s produced by Hobo With a Shotgun director Jason Eisener and also stars Michael Ironside as the deliriously evil villain.

Today, we have the full trailer for your viewing pleasure… and I’m pleased to say that Turbo Kid looks absolutely glorious. Full of action and gore, over-the-top characters and humor, and an insane looks at a bizarrely contemporary dystopian future (or past?), it looks like some sort of twisted love child between Mad Max, Kick-Ass, and an old-school NES game.

The film hits select theaters and VOD on August 28th.

Always had a thing for Laurence Leboeuf so count me in. The trailer definitely looked like a lot of fun and harkens back to a simpler childhood time.

Agreed that this looks great. Unlike Kung Fury (which is fine for 20 minutes), there seems to be just the right amount of seriousness going on here and might make for a really entertaining feature. I like your analogy of Mad Max meets Kick-Ass. Though I’d swap out Doomsday for Mad Max. Looks great.
