Jason Bateman’s ‘Bad Words’ Trailer Debuts with Plenty of Bad Words

Bad Words Jason Bateman

Dark comedy sold at Toronto

Jason Bateman’s comedy “Bad Words” has earned its red band trailer, which is replete with F-bombs and plenty of snark.

Focus Features, which has set the film for a March release, snapped up worldwide distribution rights to Bateman’s directorial debut following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Bateman plays a foul-mouthed high school dropout who enters a national children’s spelling bee through a registration loophole. The indie, produced by Bateman’s Aggregate Films with Darko and MXN Entertainment, was shot over 29 days at the end of last year in Los Angeles.

    This looks REALLY funny! I actually look forward to seeing this film. I can’t believe that this is just the first film that Jason Bateman has directed. It looks like it will be good.
