Ayo Edebiri & Rachel Sennott Create a Fight Club in Teen Comedy

MGM has dropped the first Bottoms clip from its forthcoming R-rated teen comedy. The film features Emmy nominee Ayo Edebiri and Shiva Baby star Rachel Sennott as high school seniors who set up their very own fight club.

The video shows Edebiri’s Josie and Sennott’s PJ as they called to the principal’s office, after they hit the most popular guy in school with their car in self-defense. Following its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, the film is scheduled to hit select theaters on August 25.

What to Expect in Bottoms?

“A refreshingly unique raunchy comedy, the film focuses on two girls, PJ and Josie, who start a fight club as a way to lose their virginities to cheerleaders. Their bizarre plan works,” reads the synopsis for the Bottoms trailer. “The fight club gains traction and soon the most popular girls in school are beating each other up in the name of self-defense. But PJ and Josie find themselves in over their heads and in need of a way out before their plan is exposed.”

Bottoms is directed by Emma Seligman from a screenplay she co-wrote with Sennott. They previously worked together in Seligman’s 2020 directorial debut Shiva Baby. The film stars Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri, Havana Rose Liu, Kaia Gerber, Nicholas Galitzine, with Dagmara Dominczyk and Marshawn Lynch.

The R-rated film is produced by Elizabeth Banks, Max Handelman, and Alison Small, with Ted Deiker serving as an executive producer. It will also feature music from Charli XCX and Leo Birenberg.
