BAD WORDS: Jason Bateman Uses A Few In The Red Band Trailer For His Directorial Debut
When it comes to comedies (funny or otherwise) Jason Bateman just won't quit. And now he's getting into the director's chair for his feature debut, Bad Words. He's also starring in it as a 40-year old man who, having never passed the 8th grade, finds glory in winning children's spelling bees. The execution is decidedly crass, with Bateman berating children and then befriending one particular boy, teaching him the ways of life by doing donuts and introducing him to prostitutes. While the trailer's pedestrian at best, the movie itself could go either way. One interesting note, the film leans really far over into a sepia tone in its cinematography, which is... interesting? Well, check it below.
