TURBO KID with Trailer, Michael Ironside & Filmmakers

vor 4 Jahren

TURBO KID is shared with the the trailer and discussion from the filmmakers and star Michael Ironside, from the Sundance premiere of the movie. The post-apocalyptic action adventure that is a “kid’s movie that is not for kids” is discussed with Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell, who tell how they secured the participation of Ironside for the film, the process of writing and shooting, and the possibility of an expanded sequel in this short episode of the Insiders.

TURBO KID is a post-apocalyptic, BMX-powered, blood-splattered love story that follows the epic journey of an orphaned outcast reluctant to be a hero in the wasteland of an alternate future. His routine existence is disrupted when he runs into the mysterious (and highly excitable) APPLE. Just as Apple starts to bring The Kid out of his isolated world with unflappable humour and goofy behaviour, their relationship is forever changed when she is kidnapped by a BOUNTY HUNTER working for ZEUS; the sadistic and overly-garrulous leader of the Wasteland. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo charged weapon, THE KID must confront his fears and embark on an incredible journey with to rid the Wasteland of evil and to save the girl of his dreams.

Michael Ironside has starred in more than 125 feature films. Born in Canada, he studied at the Ontario College of Art and Canadian National Film Board. After working on numerous Canadian film and television productions, both in front of and behind the camera, he came to the forefront in David Cronenberg’s sci-fi hit SCANNERS (1981), garnering a Genie Award for Best Supporting Actor (one of multiple nominations and awards in an incredible career). This success was followed by roles including leads in TOP GUN and TOTAL RECALL. His many films include STARSHIP TROOPERS, THE PERFECT STORM, TERMINATOR SALVATION, THE MACHINIST, and X-MEN FIRST CLASS.

The RKSS, short for Road Kill Super Stars, is a collective of three filmmakers: Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell. They co-write and co-direct all their films - over twenty shorts in the last ten years, many winning awards at various international festivals, including LE BAGMAN, TOTAL FURY et DEMONITRON: THE SIXTH DIMENSION. LE BAGMAN is said to be the first horror/slasher/gore film from Québec. It was sold across Europe and was even dubbed in German. The RKSS also wrote and directed the short film T IS FOR TURBO, which was originally made as a submission to THE ABC’S OF DEATH contest. Although the film was not chosen for the first anthology, it won the People’s Choice Award for the contest. Inspired by the characters of the short film, TURBO KID is their first feature film.
