Without becoming too much of a cynic today, Darren Bousman’s Mother’s Day remake is a film I doubt very much American audiences will have the opportunity to see theatrically (at least in any type of wide capacity). Having said that, it does look like a solid suspense film, one that’s sold quite nicely on this UK one-sheet.
You’ll find the poster below, and don’t forget to stop by and check out our review of Mother’s Day (review here) while you’re here. Lucky sods in the UK can see this one in theaters on June 10.
After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home, hoping their MOTHER (Rebecca De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother, JOHNNY (Matt O’Leary), has been shot, and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash.
But when the brothers get home, they find that all their stuff is gone and Mother is nowhere to be found: She lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners, BETH and DANIEL SOHAPI (Jaime King and Frank Grillo), and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers’ unwitting hostages.
Not long after, Mother arrives, along with the boys’ sister LYDIA (Deborah Ann Woll), and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening she brilliantly takes control of the situation and masterminds her sons’ escape from the law.
Sides will be taken, secrets revealed, and sins punished as the hostages struggle to make it through the night alive.
