Ana Lily Amirpour follows up her alt-cult sensation A Girl Walks Home with her highly anticipated dystopian cannibal desert trip Bad Batch, which had its North American Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Opening June 23rd, 2017, The Bad Batch is a savage dystopian cannibal fairy tale set in a Texas wasteland where society’s rejects are just trying to make ends meat.
We now have the film’s first clip, via distributor Neon, that’s vicious. The scene unfolds with Ace of Base’s “All That She Wants” playing in the background. The music gets cranked up as a saw is grabbed and used to remove someone’s arm. Tell me this doesn’t look absolutely awesome?!
The cast is insane, including Suki Waterhouse, “Game of Thrones’” Jason Momoa, Giovanni Ribisi, Yolonda Ross, Jayda Fink, Cory Roberts, Louie Lopez, Keeanu Reeves, and even Jim Carrey.
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.
Bad Batch is at the top of our must-see list for 2017.
