Neon is off to a strong start. After enjoying a successful debut with the Anne Hathaway–starring “Colossal,” which opened in theaters last Friday, the newest distributor in town has released the trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour’s “The Bad Batch.” The writer/director’s sophomore effort has earned comparisons to both “Mad Max” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” apparently living up to the strangeness of “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” and then some. Watch below.
Beginning with an ominous bird perched atop a “find comfort” sign, the trailer introduces us to our one-legged heroine (Suki Waterhouse), a group of imposing body-builders led by Jason “Khal Drogo” Momoa, a sagacious Keanu Reeves and everyone else trying to eke out an existence in this post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Giovanni Ribisi, Yolonda Ross, Jim Carrey and Diego Luna all co-star. Neon will release “The Bad Batch” in theaters on June 23.
