The Bad Batch has been granted a theatrical run in the United States courtesy of Screen Media which plans to release the film in the first quarter of next year. The film’s streaming rights were recently acquired by Netflix, but it’s great to see that audiences will be given the opportunity to catch the film on the big screen, too. It’s a shame it’s just in the States, but those of us elsewhere can catch it digitally and that’s better than nothing.
A dystopian fairy tale set in a Texas wasteland where a girl (Suki Waterhouse) wanders alone into a band of cannibalistic drifters.
The Bad Batch comes from writer-director Ana Lily Armirpour, who is behind last year’s terrific genre-bending vampire tale A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Armirpour is steadily building a great reputation in the horror world and it’s always exciting for a woman to have such a strong, critically and audience praised reputation in an industry, undoubtedly, dominated by men.
Be sure to catch The Bad Batch in 2017 in theatres or on Netflix and it stars Jason Mamoa, Yolonda Ross, Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey.
