Although the international trailer made for Darren Lynn Bousman's Mother's Day debuted more than a year ago, the first official domestic trailer is now online and you can check it out in the player below!
In the psychological horror thriller, scheduled to open in a limited release on May 4th, two mothers (Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King) battle to protect what is dearest to them. After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home, hoping their "Mother" (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" (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.
