BMX always seems to make its way into films for these film festivals! Here’s a trailer for a a film that’s been making its rounds at the Sundance, BIFFF, SXSW and a few other film festivals as of late called “Turbo Kid”. Take a look at the trailer… It looks like his best super power comes from the bike, haha.
“In a post-apocalyptic future a young solitary scavenger obsessed with comic books must face his fears and become a reluctant hero when he meets a mysterious girl. From horror masterminds Ant Timpson (The ABCs Of Death 1 & 2, Housebound) and Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun).
