Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for Tate Taylor’s upcoming thriller Ma which reunites the director with his The Help stars Octavia Spencer as Sue Ann, a lonely woman who befriends a group of teenagers who start to become weary of her intentions when they start to curdle into a terrifying obsession; watch it here…
Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe.
Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.
She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”
But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.
Ma is set for release on May 31st and features a cast that also includes Juliette Lewis, Diana Silvers, Luke Evans, McKaley Miller, Missi Pyle, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo, and Dante Brown.
