Absolute star power doesn’t come any bigger than this with a powerhouse all star cast led by legendary award winning director Steve McQueen in what promises to be one of the biggest releases this year. Widows is the movie in question and the trailer for it officially dropped yesterday. My heart was literally doing jumping jacks and more the minute I saw it with names such as Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Colin Farrell, Jon Bernthal and much much more!
From Academy Award (R)-winning director Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”) and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl”) comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. “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 (Oscar (R) winner 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. “Widows” also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas and Brian Tyree Henry.
Officially hitting big screens on November 16th, it cannot come any sooner and I CANNOT wait for this…check out the trailer below and you’ll see why this promises to be a huge hit:
