New Poster For Jason Bateman's Bad Words
'Fffffff....libbertigibbet!'

Jason Bateman is beloved in these parts, and even when his movies don't turn out to be Oscar-winning meisterwerks, there is, as our inner optimist likes to say, always the next one. In this case, the next one is Bad Words. It's the Arrested Development man's directorial debut, bringing a sweary 2011 Black List script by Andrew Dodge to life on the screen. Here's the comedy's new poster.

Bad Words focuses on Bateman’s bitter, cynical Guy Trilby, a man who likes nothing better in life than snarkily causing trouble for others. He sees a chance for some fun (and possible catharsis) when he discovers a loophole that lets him enter the National Spelling Bee as an adult, and starts making life hell for the kids who compete against him.

Yet along the way – and as he’s being investigated by a reporter (Kathryn Hahn) interested in his story – Guy strikes up an unlikely friendship with fellow competitor Chaitainya (Rohan Chand) and decides to broaden the kid’s limited horizons. Which, as the trailer shows, include the world of nipples...

Bad Words doesn't have a UK release date yet but it does have a red-band trailer. It's out in the US in March.

What's strange about the poster? It's a pretty perfect image for a film called Bad Words. More
