Steve McQueen’s Widows Trailer


It’s been almost five years since 12 Years a Slave was released, eventually going on to win Best Picture at the Oscars. Now Steve McQueen’s follow-up film is almost upon us and it looks to be a very different kind of movie. Widows is a heist flick that revolves around four women whose husbands are killed in an armed robbery attempt. Saddled with debt as a result, they decide to go and finish the job themselves. The movie is based on an ’80s British TV series of the same name and although this is the first time McQueen has really delved into genre, it looks like it will be elevated by some social commentary as well. The movie is co-written by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) and stars Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Robert Duvall, Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Carrie Coon and Jacki Weaver. Widows hits theatres on Nov. 16th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
