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.
