Steve McQueen returns to the big screen with his new film Widows, his first feature in 5 years since 2013’s 12 Years a Slave. Check out the trailer for the female lead crime movie here.
Featuring a huge cast, the film is about a set of widows who have all been left in debt by their dead husband’s criminal activities after they die in the middle of holding up a security van. Viola Davis’ Veronica Rawlins puts a criminal team together to finish the job and take what’s theirs. Co-written with Gillian Flynn who wrote Gone Girl, Widows is based on a TV mini series by Lynda La Plante from the 1980s which also sounds amazing!
Davis stars with Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo and Elizabeth Debicki, all as the widows along side Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal and Daniel Kaluuya. In what looks like a no holds barred crime thriller, McQueen seems to be exploring his own abilities as an action director with police chases and shoot outs thrown in for good measure. Pretty certain you’re not allowed to have a crime film with them!
Also starring Colin Farrell, Garret Dilliahunt, Carrie Coon and Robert Duvall, we can expect to see it being released into cinemas in November this year.
Keep. It. Reel.
