First Look at Viola Davis, Liam Neeson and more in Steve McQueen’s ‘Widows’

The first images from Widows, Steve McQueen’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, are here.

These first four shots give us just a glimpse but Oscar-winner Viola Davis is front and center of three of four. We also get Davis and Oscar nominee Liam Neeson embracing, Michelle Rodriguez and Davis exchanging money with Elizabeth Debicki in a sauna, Oscar winner Robert Duvall and a bonus Davis shot.

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 (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.

The film also stars Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther), two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook), Colin Farrell, Carrie Coon, Brian Tyree Henry and many more.

Widows tops my 2019 Oscar predictions in Best Picture, Director and Actress at the moment. You can track those updated live predictions right here.

The first teaser trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Widows is confirmed to drop Monday. Here is your first look.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
