“Welcome to our fuckin’ fight club!”
Orion Pictures today released the raucous red band trailer for Emma Seligman’s Bottoms, the hit of this year’s SXSW Film Festival starring Rachel Sennott (Shiva Baby) and Ayo Edebiri (FX’s The Bear) as two high schoolers who start a fight club as a way to lose their virginities to cheerleaders.
In our review for the film, Ryan McQuade called it “an unapologetic queer sex comedy masterpiece that will be examined and copied for years to come” and co-stars Havana Rose Liu, Kaia Gerber, Nicholas Galitzine, Dagmara Dominczyk and Marshawn Lynch.
After its premiere at SXSW, the film hit NewFest earlier this month and will land at San Francisco’s Frameline Festival in two weeks.
Written by Seligman and Sennott, and produced by Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman and Alison Small, and featuring music by Charli XCX and Leo Birenberg, Orion Pictures will release Bottoms only in theaters on August 25. Check out the trailer and poster below.
