Lesbian Teens Find Love Through Blood & Fists in Bottoms Trailer

Lesbian Teens Find Love Through Blood & Fists in Bottoms Trailer


It's like if Heathers was gay!

“Welcome to our f*cking fight club!”

Rachel Sennott and Ayo Edebiri star as PJ and Josie, two unpopular “ugly, untalented gays” in high school in the upcoming comedy Bottoms, from writer-director Emma Seligman.

When the two girls are threatened with expulsion after they fight back against the school’s star football player Jeff, they come up with the idea that they were “practicing for our self-defense club.” Soon, they’ve formed this fight club for girls, with the secret hopes that they can use it to hook up with their cheerleader crushes, played by Havana Rose Liu and Kaia Gerber.

“Jeff is psychotic and they’re picking on the weak and defenseless,” PJ says in the trailer. “So, we teach a bunch of girls how to defend themselves, they are grateful to us, adrenaline is flowing, next thing you know, Isabel and Brittany are kissing us on the mouth!”

It’s a flawless plan.

In case you were worried that this movie would pull any punches, it definitely does not. As these teen girls punch each other in the face, blood flies, teeth are knocked loose, and noses are broken.

“I’m gonna finally reverse stalk my stalker!” one girl in the fight club says.

“I’ll be able to kill my stepdad!” another adds. This is feminism.

Seligman and Sennot previously teamed up for the terrific bisexual comedy Shiva Baby in 2020, which Seligman wrote and directed and Sennott starred in. This time, Sennott and Seligman collaborated on the script.

Bottoms also stars Nicholas Galitzine, Dagmara Dominczyk, Marshawn Lynch, Ruby Cruz, Miles Fowler, and Punkie Johnson. It premiered at the SXSW film festival where it got widespread critical acclaim.

This movie looks gloriously bloody, wonderfully horny, deliciously queer, and riotously hilarious. We can’t wait to watch.

Bottoms hits theaters on August 25!
