The Bad Batch Trailer

"All the things you've done have put you right here… with me." Neon has unveiled a second official trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour's post-apocalyptic, dystopian cannibal western thriller called The Bad Batch. This follow-up to her feature directorial debut follows a woman who drifts through a hostile desert wasteland overrun by cannibals. Suki Waterhouse stars as Arlen, with Jason Momoa, Yolonda Ross, Emily O'Brien, Alina Aliluykina, Giovanni Ribisi, Diego Luna, Jim Carrey, plus the one-and-only Keanu Reeves. This premiered at film festivals last fall to mostly very negative reviews, from many people I trust. Jeremy wrote a review from Fantastic Fest saying that it "seems like something of a big step back" for the director. This is a very curious trailer, this visuals & music are interesting, but I'm still not expecting much.

Here's the second official trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour's The Bad Batch, direct from Neon's YouTube:

The Bad Batch Movie

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for The Bad Batch here, for a different look at footage from this.

A young girl wanders a savage desert wasteland in a dystopian future United States. She is Arlen, (Suki Waterhouse), one of thousands of Americans deemed unacceptable to society, who is unceremoniously dumped into a hostile desert wasteland fenced off from civilized society. While wandering in her desert exile, she is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she’ll have to fight for her very existence in this human-eat-human world. The Bad Batch is written and directed by American filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour, who made her feature debut with the cult classic film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. This first premiered at the Venice Film Festival and also played Fantastic Fest (see Jeremy's review). Neon will release The Bad Batch in select theaters starting on June 23rd this summer. Anyone interested?

    Man...the visuals accompanying this remind me of Turbokid, which I loved. But...will it be a so weird it's good thing? Or so weird it's terrible? Guess we'll have to wait and see....
    • Turbo kid was a great homage to the 80s. I loved it. ;D
    • Bo
      Never heard of Turbokid, but I agree with the we'll have to wait and see. I like this trailer a lot more than the first one shown here. Also, I thought A Girl Who Walks Home At Night was one of the most original and unique films that I've seen in a long time. This director certainly has her own vision and for that I'll give her a my efforts and time to watch whatever she's come up with now. I don't think her work is the kind one can judge from critics reviews and opinions and demands that one just has to see for themselves. Cheers, Raw.

        Yeah, Idk if TurboKid would be up your alley Bo. Like Tarek said, it's an homage to 80's post-apocalyptic movies and Nintendo LOL. It's VERY tongue in cheek and ridiculous, but it's a lot of fun though (and on Netflix if you're curious). But don't say I didn't warn you if you give it a spin! I NEED to see A Girl Who Walks Home at Night still. I loved the style and cinematography I saw in the trailer. Looked beautiful.
        • Bo
          I looked up TurboKid on IMDB and thought it did look interesting. I doubt I'll ever see it, but if it shows up on my cable I now know to take a look at it. Thanks. Yes, you MUST give Girl Who Walks a viewing. I simply loved the film. Everything about it. The story, the way it was shot and edited, the music, and the cinematography was beautiful. It's a must see movie, that's for sure. Later, Raw. Let me know if you watch it what your thoughts are as I find myself curious to wht your response will be.
          • RAW_D
            It's on Netflix! I may give it a spin tonight if I get time. I'll let you know what I think.
          • Bo
            Cool. Thanks. Enjoy as it's really something. Very different and unique. This director gal is really talented.
          • RAW_D
            Bo! Watched this last night. Simply put: it was cinematic beauty with stirring performances. My favorite scene was the girl riding the skateboard down the middle of the street, burka flying behind her. The ending was charming, but also left me wanting a bit more closure, however I know I wouldn't get that with this type of film. For a first time film, it was EXTREMELY impressive. Thanks for the recommendation!
          • Bo
            You're welcome, Raw. I'm pleased you like it as it's certainly not a film for the mass to be honest I can't even remember what the ending was. Jeez! I do remember that I didn't have quite the same 'left with wanting more closure', so perhaps you can remind me of the ending and I'll discover that I in fact felt the same way. It's not a perfect, whatever the hell that means, especially for a film so off-center and unique a vision as this one, but I agree whole heartedly with you that for a first film it was 'extremely' impressive indeed. Cheers.
    Looks strange. Trailer was ambiguous enough to interest me.
  • shiboleth
    That is some dark perspective. Nevertheless, intriguing ...
  • Бабак
    Her last film "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" was meh.
  • John Doe
    Seems like a sequel to a film from last year that also appeared to be more about style over substance, also starring Keanu Reeves.
  • Stu
    Looks amazing! Keeps you glued to every scene lest you miss another unique or special shot. Looking forward to seeing the full film. btw - anyone know what the song is that's used in the 2nd Trailer? Thx :)
