This trailer has everything! Explosions! Danger! Tension! A smart house! A generic bad guy saying, "YO!" Gabrielle Union saying, "I'm just a mom, you have no clue what I'm capable of!" And then there's that amazing tagline: Payback Is A Mother. Yes, hell yes – put this movie in front of my face. Here's the Breaking In synopsis:

Next Mother's Day, Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In.

Oh, Christ, and it comes out on Mother's Day, too? This is perfect. Good work, everyone behind Breaking InJames McTeigue, who helmed V For Vendetta, directs the film, with a screenplay by Ryan Engle, based on a story by Jaime Primak Sullivan. Union produced the film along with James Lopez, Craig Perry, Sheila Hanahan Taylor and Will Packer. In addition to Union, the cast that includes Billy Burke (the Twilight series), Richard Cabral (End of Watch), Seth Carr (Black Panther) and Ajiona Alexus (Empire).

Please, everyone go see this movie so it can launch a franchise where Gabrielle Union keeps having to beat the crap out of people. There are so many other places her character can be locked out of and then have to smash her way into! A museum! A cruise ship! An opera! A funeral! The possibilities are endless. Give us the Breaking In, franchise, Hollywood. We've earned it.
