Bad Words, Jason Bateman

Before the Trailer, We Thought: Critically well received upon its unveiling at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, Jason Bateman's directorial debut "Bad Words" emerged as one of the hottest buys of the festival after Focus Features nabbed worldwide rights to the hard-R comedy.

And Now? Weeks after unveiling a foul and hilarious Red Band promo, Focus Features has dropped a Green Band one. If you don't want some of the film's raciest jokes spoiled, we suggest you watch this latest one instead.

Bateman headlines the film as a bitter thirty-something man who finds a loophole that allows him to compete in and dominate spelling bee competitions usually reserved for children. Cue to the creative, wordy put-downs.

The film opens March 28.
