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.”

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get OutHalloweenThe Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics) and Taylor, is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up), and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella.

Movie Review by Kristin: BIRD BOX

BirdBox_Verical-Main_PRE_USHo. Ly. Shitballs.

I’ve been waiting months for BIRD BOX to finally be released on Netflix, so I was excited to curl up on the couch to check it out last night after doing some last-minute Christmas shopping. Because nothing says holiday spirit like a supernatural apocalyptic movie that has you on the edge of your seat for about 2 hours, amiright? My excitement to see this was heightened after seeing some of the feedback on Twitter about it. I definitely went into it with high expectations and it delivered!

No lie, I felt like I needed a Xanax to calm my anxiety throughout most of the movie — ok, all of the movie. My body was tense the whole time and I just couldn’t stop watching. Unfortunately, it’s easy to compare BIRD BOX to A Quiet Place because they both have similar concepts, but this one took the cake for me.

SYNOPSIS: When a mysterious force decimates the population, only one thing is certain — if you see it, you die. The survivors must now avoid coming face to face with an entity that takes the form of their worst fears. Searching for hope and a new beginning, a woman and her children embark on a dangerous journey through the woods and down a river to find the one place that may offer sanctuary. To make it, they’ll have to cover their eyes from the evil that chases them — and complete the trip blindfolded.

BIRD BOX gave me a little bit of what A Quiet Place didn’t. I can’t really pin point exactly what that was, but once the movie was done I didn’t feel like something had been missing. The cast was incredible, the plot was interesting and Sandra Bullock’s performance throughout the movie was probably one of her best performances. (Side note: Why the heck is Trevante Rhodes not being mentioned anywhere? Between BIRD BOX and Moonlight, he deserves a bit more recognition.) One thing that I appreciated in this movie was that viewers never get to see whatever it is that causes the mass suicides once it’s seen. The fear of the unknown is brutal, so I liked that we never really had a physical image to go along with whatever supernatural being was causing this mass terror.

It’s definitely worth the watch.  Douglas (John Malkovich) will make you want to punch your TV screen, Olympia (Danielle Macdonald) will make you want to scream in her face, Felix (Machine Gun Kelly) will make you wonder why his character was even there in the first place if he wasn’t going to be given any significant importance (not that I don’t like MGK), and Mallory (Sandra Bullock) and Tom (Trevante Rhodes) will make you want to be their besties during any apocalyptic situation.

Give it a chance and, as always, let me know your thoughts!

HALLOWEEN | Trailer Released!

HWN_Tsr1Sheet_RGB_1This October, Michael Myers returns.

Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween on Friday, October 19, 2018.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity).  Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.

A Mom Is On A Mission To Save Her Kids in BREAKING IN

BGN_Tsr1Sheet_0301_RGB_1This Mother’s Day, a group of thieves mess with the wrong mom!

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will do anything to rescue her children from a band of ruthless criminals who kidnap them before her very eyes.

In Breaking In, the new Universal Pictures action thriller from V for Vendetta director James McTeigue and producer Will Packer, Shaun (Union) takes her two children on a weekend getaway to her late father’s secluded house. When they arrive, she discovers her father had built a fortress designed with impenetrable security.  As she wonders why, criminals force their way in, lock her out of the house and hold her children hostage, demanding the contents of a safe.

Initially feeling powerless, Shaun’s maternal instincts kick in and she gets physical as she figures out a way to outwit her children’s captors.

When the ringleader tells her she is “a woman alone at the mercy of strangers,” she becomes determined to prove them wrong and find a way into the house to save her kids and herself from what looks to be certain death, even if she cooperates with the thieves.

1[1]

Union shines in this action-packed suspense thriller as a desperate mom who will stop at nothing to get her children back and teach the criminals a lesson: no traps, doors or locks, and especially no man can match a mother with a mission.

The movie will keep you at the edge of your seat, rooting for Union as she tells the criminals “you broke into the wrong house.”

Breaking In co-stars Billy Burke (Twilight series), Richard Cabral (End of Watch), Ajiona Alexus (Empire), Levi Meaden (Pacific Rim Uprising), Jason George (Grey’s Anatomy), Seth Carr (Black Panther) and Christa Miller (Cougar Town).
