WIDOWS Trailer: The Ladies Finish the Job in Steve McQueen’s Star-Studded Thriller

- Advertisement -

Widows is the latest from director Steve McQueen, one of the 21st century’s most serious and somber auteurs, and it looks like he is shifting gears from heavy dramas like 12 Years a Slave and Shame in order to shoot a little action.

The plot for Widows is simple, but pretty brilliant, and as you can see in this trailer, this movie is absolutely loaded with talent. Check it out:

From Academy Award®-winning director Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”) and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl”) comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion, and corruption. “Widows” is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.  “Widows” also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.

I love everything about this trailer, the vibe, the intensity, and the unbelievable cast. It’s nice to see Steve McQueen steer away from his grief porn films, although those have been pretty great so far. Widows opens November 16.
