A new trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour’s indie thriller The Bad Batch has been released, further teasing the writer and director’s Mad Max inspired film featuring Suki Waterhouse, Keanu Reeves and Jason Momoa.
The trailer shows a civilization outside of society in the wastelands of Texas, where anything goes and apparently amputation seems to be the norm. The Bad Batch follows Arlen (Suki Waterhouse), as she is abandoned in the fenced off Texas wasteland away from a functioning society. While trying to seek refuge she becomes captured by a group of cannibals, and realises that she will need to learn to fight to stay alive in her new found hell.
Here you can read the synopsis for the film:
“The highly anticipated follow-up to Amirpour’s acclaimed directorial debut, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Bad Batch follows 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.”
This will be indie filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature following from her critically acclaimed film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, featuring an all-star cast with Suki Waterhouse (The Divergent Series: Insurgent), Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Justice League), Giovanni Ribisi (Ted, Sneaky Pete), Keanu Reeves (John Wick) Jim Carrey (The Mask, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), and Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).
The Bad Batch releases in theatres June 23, 2017. You can check out the trailer below.

If the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows us anything, it's a renewed sense of confidence in itself. Like its characters, Buffy is a hell of a lot more sure of itself in its second year. particularly as the season goes on. While "Halloween" showed that this show was more than willing to get silly for an episode, "Bewitched, Bewildered and Bothered" doubles down on that to glorious effect.

With the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey being only the third Mario game in the same vein as Super Mario 64 (following Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine), it is high time to reexamine one of the evergreen staples of the video game canon.
Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
