#3.)  "Mama"  (PG-13)  Trailer

A horror movie about two orphaned girls rescued from a cabin in the woods, after surviving there for five years on their own.  But when they're brought back to the city and reunited with their uncle, the ghost they call 'mama' becomes dangerously jealous and possessive.

Their uncle is played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jaime Lannister from "Game of Thrones", and Jessica Chastain from "Zero Dark Thirty" plays his girlfriend.  You may not recognize her at first, because of her character's black hair and tattoos.

Guillermo del Toro is the producer.  He says,  "A ghost is like the essence of a person.  If you leave a full personality to desiccate in the sun, then what is left is the corpse of one emotion."
