Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' music video is on another level

TAYLOR Swift's newest music video "Bad Blood" has a cast most Hollywood films would kill for.

Premiering at the Billboard Music Awards, the video came at the end of a string of promotional posters gradually drip-fed to social media showing cast members in character.

Swift has been incredibly tight-lipped on the details surrounding the video, but the posters appear to be inspired by the martial arts action of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill trilogy and Frank Miller's neo-noir Sin City.

There is also an undeniable 'girl-power' theme, as its cast features Swift's famous friends, including Karlie Kloss, Lena Dunham, Hailee Steinfeld, Cara Delevigne, Martha Hunt, Jessica Alba and Ellie Goulding.

So far the only male character is "Welvin Da Great", who is being portrayed by Kendrick Lamar.

Bad Blood is directed by Joseph Kahn, the Grammy award-winning director behind Swift's video for 'Black Space'.

Kahn has also produced music videos for the likes of Muse, Katy Perry, Shakira, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, LeAnn Rimes, U2 and The Chemical Brothers.

Here are some of the characters appearing in the video, in the order they were introduced:
