In the movie The Bad Batch, Arlen, (unknown actress Suki Waterhouse), is one of thousands of Americans deemed unacceptable to society and who is unceremoniously dumped into a hostile desert wasteland fenced off from civilized society. While wandering in her desert exile, she is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she’ll have to fight for her very existence in this human-eat-human world.
Keanu Reeves, Jason Momoa and Jim Carrey pop up in the low budget film The Bad Batch, destined for bombdom at the movie box office.
The Bad Batch is one of the first releases from fledgling movie studio, Neon.
If Neon continues with similarly awful projects, they won’t be around long.
Megan Ellison, the lesbian daughter of Oracle founder, billionaire Larry Ellison, was originally going to release The Bad Batch under her shingle, Annapura Pictures. After seeing audience reaction at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival, she dumped it, thereby allowing Neon to swoop in and pick up its remains.
Tim League, the pompous, conceited and generally reviled man who launched Alamo Drafthouse movie theaters, got so cocky that he thought he could create a movie studio. And thus Neon was born. Ironically, he couldn’t even come up with a unique name for the studio, as there was a Neon Films that launched in 2008 in the UK.
