New TURBO KID Poster Unveiled
A new poster for the 1997-set post-apocalyptic film Turbo Kid has been released thanks to Collider, and it gives you a good idea of the kind of retro feel that the movie has. This is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen this year, and I wish it was getting a much bigger theatrical release so that the rest of you can see it on the big screen. It's the bloodiest and most violent feel-good movie of the year.
Set in the post apocalyptic year of 1997, this retro-futuristic and nostalgic tribute to 80’s action-adventure films follows an orphaned teenager who goes on an adventure to save his female-robot companion from the hands of an evil warlord who controls the only water supply. Turbo Kid is directed by trio François Simard, Annouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell, and stars favorite American character actor Michael Ironside, andCanadian natives Munro Chambers (Degrassi) and Laurence Leboeuf (Trauma). The Canadian/New Zealand co-production was produced by Ant Timpson (Housebound, Deathgasm), Anne-Marie Gelinas (Mars & Avril), Tim Riley and Benoit Beaulieu; and executive produced by Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun).
The movie will get a limited release on August 28th. You can watch the trailer for the film below just in case you haven't seen it yet. You can read my review of the film here.
