Universal announced today that it would be releasing the Blumhouse produced “Ma” to purchase on digital on August 20th, and finally home to Blu-ray and DVD on September 3rd. It would appear that this title will not see a 4K release, at least not at the moment of this posting. I’m looking forward to seeing Ma. I’m disappointed that the marketing campaign gave away the entire movie in trailers and promos. It was released in the middle of a string of other movie releases, and I just never found time to go to the theater and see Ma, so when it comes to Blu-ray, I will gladly give it a look. See the official press release below for further details.

Octavia Spencer delivers an unnervingly daring performance as Sue Ann, a lonely woman who keeps to herself in a quiet Ohio town. When local teenager Maggie (Diana Silvers, Glass) asks Sue Ann to buy booze for her group of friends, she decides to make some new friends of her own and offers her basement for the kids to party. They just have to follow a few simple house rules: Someone has to stay sober, don’t curse, never go upstairs and call her “Ma.” As Ma’s hospitality curdles into obsession, her place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.
Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) and executive produced by Octavia Spencer, MA features an outstanding supporting cast including Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast), Missi Pyle (Gone Girl), McKaley Miller (“Hart of Dixie”), Corey Fogelmanis (“Girl Meets World”), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power), and Dante Brown (“Lethal Weapon” TV series).
