We've been watching Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" music video quite obsessively in the last 36 hours or so since it was released online. We know that it's been compared to Britney Spears's "Toxic" and "Womanizer," but what we've noticed is how the epic girl squad montage of a video can actually be likened to a dystopian film.

Don't believe us? We rounded up a few scenes which totally screamed dystopia to us! 

 1  Did The Trinity remind you of Peacekeepers from the Hunger Games series, too? Because we totally thought they looked similar.
