Mama Synopsis
Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their mother was murdered. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.

The day their father killed their mother, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished near their suburban neighborhood. For five long years, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.

As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all by themselves? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.

t's not just moviemaking that del Toro somehow makes the time for. He spent an hour chatting with us on the set of Mama, as if he had absolutely nowhere else to be, and then invited us to a screening that night at Toronto's Bell Lightbox theater, where he would be presenting the obscure Italian horror movie L'acrno Incantatore (we went; it was very strange but kind of a thrill)...

Is Mama a horror movie? Depends on who you ask. Star Jessica Chastain, who freely admits to being a scaredy cat, most definitely says yes. The film's visual effects supervisor Ed Taylor says absolutely not-- "I like to call it a ghost story. It’s about hope, it’s about what a parent is - how do you define a parent? And it’s about fighting for what you love."...

I saw Jessica Chastain in 5 different movies in 2011, and yet when I saw her walk in a room in October of last year, I didn't recognize her. And in a way you might not expect from a young starlet on a very fast rise to fame, she seemed completely delighted to fly under the radar. "Did you know it was me when I walked in?" she asked with a laugh after sitting down with group of journalists...

It has been far too long since Guillermo del Toro last directed a film (his most recent was 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army). And since it will be another year until we get to see Pacific Rim, we have to settle on films del Toro “presents,” the next of which will be the ghost thriller Mama, due in theaters early next year. Instead of describing it, we’re happy to post the first official trailer, provided by Universal. It’s chilling....

Jessica Chastain To Star With Game Of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau In Mama Jessica Chastain To Star With Game Of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau In Mama
Coster-Waldau garnered quite a bit of buzz for his portrayal of the sinister Jamie Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones. He’s brilliant on that show and I’m excited to see him coming back to film as well. Chastain’s star is thoroughly on the rise of late. She’s turned up in The Debt, The Help, and Tree of Life. She has a powerful screen presence that only seems to increase from project to project....
