Octavia Spencer thriller ‘Ma’ gets summer release date

80

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Oscar winner Octavia Spencer is embracing a new, creepy persona in her upcoming film Ma.

Spencer took to Instagram to share the new animated poster for suspense-thriller, which now has a release date of May 31. "So ready to take you on the wildest ride from @blumhouse that is @MaMovie2019," she wrote.

In the film, Spencer plays Sue Ann, a loner in a small Ohio town.  Soon, she befriends a teenager who asks her to buy her and her friends alcohol. But their "friendship" soon turns into an obsession, after Sue Ann invites the young people to hang out in her basement -- and follow some important "house rules."

In addition to Spencer, Ma also stars Juliette Lewis, Luke Evans, Missi Pyle, McKaley Miller, Corey Fogelmanis, Gianni Paolo and Dante Brown.

Blumhouse is the production company that brought us Get Out, The Purge and Split, as well as BlacKkKlansman and Whiplash.
