WATCH: Trailer for Steve McQueen Film ‘Widows’ Starring Viola Davis & Cynthia Erivo

Five years following from the Academy Award-winning, 12 Years A Slave, Steve McQueen is back with a brand-new film titled Widows.

According to 21st Century Fox, Widows is a “modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption,” based upon the 1983 ITV series Widows. The movie highlights the journey of four women, Veronica (Viola Davis), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo), who make it their duty to pay off the debt their dead husbands left behind following a failed heist attempt. Veronica, played by Viola Davis, leads the pack as the women strategize how they’ll find the money, which includes following in the criminal footsteps of their husbands and finishing the job that they started.

Alongside the star-studded actresses, Widows also stars Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya and Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry.

Widows is set to release in theaters November 16, 2018. Check out the above trailer and let us know what you think!
