Watch The Rad New Trailer For TURBO KID!
From its short film inception in 2011 to its subsequent development and production in the last four years, R.K.S.S. Collective directing trio Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell have made sheer headway in the festival circuit with their new retro-powered sci-fi action epic, Turbo Kid. From Sundance and SXSW to Fantaspoa and Neuchatel, the new film sets a tone for a niche long keen on nostalgic tropes with dazzling special effects and much of them being delightfully practical between costume design and the visbly gory action sequences.
There’s a certain genius to this kind of filmmaking though, and not a lot of filmmakers can do this as much as they may try. That said, Turbo Kid certainly lends itself the cult status it is being given by many who have seen it, including the charmed critics lucky to catch this one in earlier screenings, and when you have a majority that approving, it’s pretty much fair to cast skepticism aside. No, a film like this obviously isn’t for everyone, but I’m sure Epic Pictures Group hopes everyone goes and sees this movie in the next two months when it releases on August 23, 2015 on VoD and in limited theaters. Hell, bring a friend or several!
