The Bad Batch Trailer (2017)

Trailer for The Bad Batch, starring Jason Momoa and Suki Waterhouse.

A dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland and set in a community of cannibals.

If you can't figure out why you recognize the big guy, shame on you. Not only was he Khal Drogo in HBO's Game of Thrones, but Jason Mamoa is also DC's Aquaman. The actor has been on a bit of a run of late.

Director Ana Lily Amirpour is a huge fan of practical effects. So much in fact that it would be sacrilege to assume that Suki Waterhouse's amputated limbs were achieved digitally. Shame, shame! As it turns out, that is not the case. Practical make up and camera work was done to achieve the look of missing limbs. Impressive, right? The effect was so tricky that the production crew had to plan ahead on effects shots with the help of storyboards.

As you might have guessed, Amirpour also refused to film on a soundstage.

While The Bad Batch trailer is sure to mix in some moments of disgust, the film can't help but look strangely beautiful. Maybe it is the euphoric visuals or the idea that drugs are in play, but the film is, as the critical acclaim says, stunning. At least, to look at.

Speaking of visuals, Ana Lily Amirpour's practical effects are spot on. By the time the trailer finished its run I was starting to second guess on whether Suki Waterhouse was a real amputee or not. She's not, right?

But does the trailer play well enough to convince a theatrical viewing? Well, the story is not exactly my cup of tea, but I'll definitely be anxiously awaiting it's release to some premium network.
