We've got a new trailer and poster for the upcoming Jason Bateman comedy Bad Words, which he both stars in and directs. It looks like he's done a solid job with it. The movie looks incredibly funny, and I'm looking forward to watching it. The movie was shown at the Toronto Film Festival, and it came out with some really positive buzz.
In the story Bateman plays Guy Trilby, "a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. As a reporter (Kathryn Hahn of We’re the Millers) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand of Homeland), who is completely unfazed by Guy’s take-no-prisoners approach to life."
The movie is set to be released on March 28th, 2014.
