Today's Hot Horror Trailer: More "Mama" in the International Trailer For Mama
10.20.12 by Ryan
If you have to ask "what's under the bed," don't expect a good answer.
Considering it's October, it's no surprise to see a plethora of new trailers for upcoming horror movies. Only, in the case of Mama, the movie won't open until next January after being moved from its initial (but tentative) October release date in August. From the looks of the movie, the move was likely done to avoid competition from other supernatural horror movies like Sinister and Paranormal Activity 4 and not because of a lack of quality (as a move to the "dead zone" of January might suggest).
Executive produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), Mama stars Academy Award–nominated actress Jessica Chastain (The Help) as Annabel, who becomes the guardian of her partner Lucas' (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) two orphaned nieces Victoria (Red Riding Hood's Megan Charpentier) and Lilly (Isabelle Nélisse), who have miraculously survived alone in the woods for five years. Or is it a miracle? Unlike the first trailer for Mama, it doesn't take long for the new international trailer to reveal that the girls may owe their lives to a secret companion, a ghostly apparition of a woman they call "mama."
