Darren Bousman's Mother's Day Lands Us Distribution at Anchor Bay

9 November 2011 12:24 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

His newest film, 11-11-11, is coming out this weekend so naturally we've been wondering when, if ever, we'd be seeing Darren Bousman's previous effort, a loose remake of Mother's Day, released here in the States (the UK got it last month on DVD and Blu-ray). Finally the news has come that Anchor Bay Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Mother’s Day. Hallelujah!

Per Deadline the film has been in the can for a while, but a deal with distributor Gigapix that would have put the film into theaters fell through. Now Anchor Bay is looking at a potential release for next Mother’s Day, which falls on May 13, 2012.

“With Saw’s Darren Lynn Bousman at the helm and a cast featuring [Rebecca] De Mornay, [Shwan] Ashmore and [Deborah Ann] Woll, Mother’s Day has an unbeatable horror pedigree,” said Kevin Kasha, Anchor Bay executive vp of acquisitions and co-productions. »

Exclusive: Mother's Day Hits Theaters May 2012

8 November 2011 10:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

I recently had the chance to speak with director Darren Lynn Bousman about his upcoming horror-thriller 11-11-11, hitting theaters nationwide on November 11. I also got an update on Mother's Day, his remake starring Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King, which the director confirmed will be released on Mother's Day weekend in 2012. While he didn't give an exact date, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, May 13 next year, which would indicate Mother's Day will likely arrive in theaters Friday, May 11, 2012. Here's what Darren Lynn Bousman had to say about Mother's Day, and the reason for the delay.

"The problem with Mother's Day, it's an awesome movie and I'm very, very proud of it, we sold it to a company that was going to release it in 2011. The company basically went bankrupt, or there was a lawsuit, but it prevented Mother's Day and three other movies from coming out. We finally got »

Three brothers return to their childhood home to take refuge following a botched bank robbery but find the property under new ownership. After taking the owners and their guests hostage, the brothers call upon their psychotic mother to help them deal with the situation.

For a new homeowner, I can’t imagine there’s anything much worse than throwing a party for a few friends in your new abode, only to have the previous occupants turning up at your door in the middle of the night – especially when the previous occupants are a trio of violent criminals, one of whom has taken a bullet to the chest and is bleeding out, »

BFI London Film Festival 2011: 'Natural Selection'

21 October 2011 2:08 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ One of many unexpected highlights of this year's 55th BFI London Film Festival, Natural Selection (2011) is an amusing, unconventional comedy from first-time director Robbie Pickering, starring Rachael Harris, John Diehl and Matt O'Leary.

Barren, evangelical housewife Linda (Harris) discovers that her husband Abe (John Diehl) has been secretly donating to a sperm bank for the past 25 years after he suffers a stroke at the clinic, and consequently decides to drive across the country in order to find Abe's eldest biological son. This son turns out to be Raymond (O'Leary), a foul-mouthed ex-con with a penchant for drugs and thievery, with whom Linda develops a warped, yet meaningful relationship.

Natural Selection is a well-crafted effort that uses its comedy very carefully to create a number of genuinely touching scenes. The film plays out as a road movie, focusing upon the developing - and dysfunctional - relationship between Linda and Raymond, and »

Yep. We're talking about the June 10th release of Darren Bousman's Mother's Day again. The only catch? It's in UK cinemas. While we're happy for our friends across the pond, we can't help but be completely jealous at the same time. Oh, well. In any event. Dig on some eye candy.

Mother's Day UK Poster Art Revealed

26 May 2011 11:42 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

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.

Finally Some Good Art for 'Mother's Day'

26 May 2011 8:51 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

It's kind of ridiculous that Optimum Releasing is already putting Darren Lynn Bousman's Mother's Day in theaters on June 10, and yet we're sitting here in the States twiddling our f*cking thumbs. But whatever, I guess I'll be picking up a Blu-ray from overseas before it ever hits theaters here... Anyways, thus far the international artwork has been horrid and uninviting. Empire scored an exclusive look at the official UK quad that finally looks "professional". Rebecca De Mornay, Jaime King, Deborah Ann Woll, Briana Evigan, Alexa Vega, Shawn Ashmore, Matt O'Leary, Lyriq Bent, Lisa Marcos, Patrick Flueger, Aj Cook, J. Larose, Warren Kole, Frank Grillo all star. Three brothers on the run from the law head for home, only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. Mother ingeniously orchestrates her sons' escape, teaching the house's new owners and their guests a few lessons along the way. »

Exclusive Mother's Day Poster

25 May 2011 8:24 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Horror remakes may be two a penny these days but in Mother's Day we could have a retread with real spike. There’s nothing Hallmark-approved here. It's directed by Saw veteran Darren Lynn Bousman who's attempted to twist the cult Troma original into something slicker but no less scary.Dominating this new quad poster is the titular mom – a welcome return to frightsville for Rebecca De Mornay – who takes the role played by Beatrice Pons in the 1980 version, Natalie 'Mother' Koffin. Think Ma Jarrett spliced with the Lord of Darkness himself and you’re on the right track. In the Charles Kaufman original, her sons rape and murder to impress her. Here, Scott Milam’s script gives them a motivation that stretches beyond the Freudian – the three boys, Matt O'Leary, Warren Kole, Patrick John Flueger, return to their childhood home to reclaim it from the new residents. And possibly moiderise them. »
