Watch: Green Band Theatrical Trailer for Jason Bateman's 'Bad Words'
"You don't know me, and you don't know why I'm here." We've already seen a red band trailer for Jason Bateman's directorial debut Bad Words, but now a more tame theatrical version of the trailer for the R-rated comedy is here. The first half isn't too different from the first trailer, save for some less salty language, and the second half introduces some more footage with Kathryn Hahn and the precocious, friendless Indiana boy named Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), who joins Bateman for some fun. This should be a a great comedy to liven up March, and Bateman may have a sterling directing career ahead. Watch below!
Here's the green band theatrical trailer for Jason Bateman's Bad Words, originally from Apple:
Bad Words is directed by Jason Bateman with a script from freshman writer Andrew Dodge. Thanks to a registration loophole, Guy Trilby (Bateman), a 41-year-old, foul-mouthed, cranky, ill-mannered high-school dropout, enters the National Quill Spelling Bee, and he is ruthlessly determined to win. Trilby slashes and burns through the regionals, then, at the national level, he meets legitimate competitor Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), a seemingly ingenuous boy unfazed by the older man's misanthropic demeanor. Kathryn Hahn and Alison Janney also star in the film which Focus Features releases to limited theaters on March 21st, 2014.
