The film will enjoy a day and date release August 28, 2015 via Epic Pictures Group. This is one that I am really excited about. When it debuted at Sundance, there were no screeners made available. Since I wasn’t in attendance, I have yet to see this one but I think it’s going to be outstanding. If you don’t believe me, check out the trailer in the player below!Turbo Kid is a violent, post-apocalyptic, BMX love story with an outcast orphan child taking center stage. It is a throwback to the awesomely bad grindhouse epics of the 1980s. It takes place in the distant future that is 1997. The creative team behind the project has explained that they attacked the picture as if it were a lost classic from yesteryear that is just now being discovered by audiences.
Turbo Kid was directed by RKSS (The filmmaking conglomerate Roadkill Superstar). The group consists of: Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell. The film stars Michael Ironside and Munro Chambers. The project is a co-production between T&A films and EMA films.
Turbo Kid made its world premiere as part of the the Park City at Midnight programming segment of Sundance. We will keep you in the loop as more details are announced. In the meantime, check out our interview with Michael Ironside discussing the film and his character.
