‘The Bad Batch’ First Clips Look Like ‘Mad Max’ Meets ‘Spring Breakers’

As far as I’m concerned, Ana Lily Armipour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is one of the most interesting, exciting, and artistic directorial debuts of the past few years. The film has garnered a cult following ever since its release as well, and while her newest film, The Bad Batch, boasts much more well-known stars in Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey, and Keanu Reeves, it certainly doesn’t look any less strange.

Ahead of its TIFF and Fantastic Fest screenings, but following its Venice premiere, two new clips from The Bad Batch have been released online, and make no mistake, the film’s central, cannibalistic desert community looks unlike any other world we’ve seen onscreen before.

Check out the clips below:


The clips obviously don’t boast much in terms of plot or story, though early reviews seem to indicate that the film is almost completely silent with very little dialogue, but it does well introducing us to both Jason Momoa and Suki Waterhouse’s characters, and providing us with the film’s first, strange tone and look. It honestly seems like some strange cross breed between Mad Max: Fury Road and Spring Breakers, and that’s basically all I need in order to see it.

The Bad Batch does not currently have a release date.
