Grab your guns, skateboard, and drugs for The Bad Batch trailer

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Holy hell! Have you ever seen a trailer for a movie and then immediately say to yourself, "Yeah, that's a movie for me." That's exactly how I feel about Ana Lily Amipour's THE BAD BATCH. There's a crazy amount of style and flare going on here, and the music that looms in the background of this bizarre, drug-addled trip of a trailer is giving me a case of the grooves, man.

You can check it out for yourself by watching the video posted below:

Noted as the highly anticipated follow-up to Amirpour’s acclaimed directorial debut, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, THE BAD BATCH follows Arlen (Waterhouse) as she is unceremoniously dumped in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilized society. While trying to orient her unforgiving environment, she is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she'll have to fight her way through her new reality. As Arlen adjusts to life in 'the bad batch' she discovers that being good or bad mostly depends on who you're standing next to. 

If that doesn't get your head spinning, what if I told you that the film boasts a very impressive cast with actors Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Giovanni Ribisi, and Keanu Reeves all joining the tripped out madness? Boy am I glad this story landed in my lap, this afternoon. Otherwise, it could have just passed me by, and that would've been a cinematic sin of epic proportions on my part. 

THE BAD BATCH was produced by Annapurna Pictures and VICE Media. Be sure to get yourself a designated driver for when the film opens in theaters on June 23rd.
