It's Speed meets Road Warrior meets Caroline in the City, it's on DVD shelves RIGHT NOW, and the trailer is ridiculous. Sample dialogue:

"Who's gonna make that run?"
"I will... I run," says Lea Thompson, whose power is quick running.

This looks really good:

Isn't it bizarre to see Lea Thompson's name whoosh past in that action-packed typeface? How is "rushing soon" any more appropriate or evocative than "coming soon"? And why does that guy keep standing on his motorcycle seat? Only Netflix has those answers.
