Guillermo del Toro Presents Jessica Chastain in First Trailer for 'Mama'

Last year Jessica Chastain had a hell of a run on the big screen with roles in The Help, The Tree of Life, Take Shelter and a couple more films. This year she stayed a little more low key with a voice role in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted and a solid supporting turn in Lawless. Now next year she'll be taking on horror in Mama, a new film from producer Guillermo del Toro. In the film, Annabel (Chastain) and Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) are faced with the challenge of raising his young nieces that were left alone in the forest for five years. But they may not have been as alone as once thought. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Andres Muschietti's Mama originally from Apple:

Andres Muschietti directs Mama as his first big film from a script he co-wrote with his sister and producer Barbara Muschietti and "Luther" writer Neil Cross. Guillermo del Toro presents this supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. 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. Mama hits theaters early next year on January 18th. Any interest?

nice. As usual though, the trailer shows way too much. It could've stopped halfway through and I'd be more hooked.

This looks as impressive as the initial trailer of GDT's DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, and we all know how that panned out. Then again THE ORPHANAGE was good, so I guess we'll see.

As predictable as all these horror movies are, I like them for some reason and will see Mama. Hell, I even paid to see Dream House!

5 I remember watching this Guillermo del Toro produced short of the same name years ago. Glad to see the awesome short is being fleshed into something bigger.

She looks like Rose Byrne in this. Also, Jaime Lannister!
