First Trailer: “When The Bough Breaks”

Hollywood loves regular patterns, and one it has subscribed to recently is releasing a cost-effective psychological thriller aimed at an African-American audience during the second or third week of September.

The results have proven profitable so far such as with 2014’s “No Good Deed” and 2015’s “The Perfect Guy”. Today, Screen Gems has unveiled the first trailer for this year’s film in that slot – “When the Bough Breaks”

Playing like a variation of “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,” Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall star as a young, professional couple who hire a surrogate. As said woman gets further along in her pregnancy, her dangerous fixation on the husband increases.

Theo Rossi, Christina Bach, GiGi Erneta, Michelle DeVito, Boyana Balta, Justin Lebrun and Jeff Caperton also star in the film which Jon Cassar directs. It opens September 16th.
