Last week we brought you the first look images of Steve McQueen’s Widows and today we’ve got the first trailer for the 20th Century Fox release.
Crime, corruption and revenge in modern-day Chicago converge in Widows when four women (Oscar and Emmy winner Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez and Tony, Grammy and Emmy winner Cynthia Erivo) form an unlikely bond after their criminal husbands are killed. When crime bosses come after the women for their husbands’ debts, the widows take drastic measures, forging a future on their own terms.
“Now the best thing we have going for us is being who we are,” says Davis. “Why? asks Debicki. “Because no one thinks we have the balls to pull this off.”
Widows also stars Oscar nominee Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Oscar winner Robert Duvall, Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya, two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, Lukas Haas and Emmy nominee Brian Tyree Henry. It will be released by 20th Century Fox on November 16th. It is produced by Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Steve McQueen, and Arnon Milchan with a screenplay by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) & Steve McQueen
based on “Widows” by Lynda La Plante. It rules my current Oscar prediction charts in Best Picture, Director and Actress.
Here’s the teaser trailer.
