The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
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, Alice, Linda and Belle take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
The cast and previous trailer alone already had me on board, here with the latest one we get more scope on how the widows are pulled into dire straits to carry the debt owed by their deceased husbands, leading them to pull off a heist that could save their lives.
McQueen co-wrote the screenplay with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn and stars Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Garret Dillahunt, Carrie Coon, Jacki Weaver, Jon Bernthal, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Robert Duvall, Liam Neeson, Michael Harney, André Holland and Lukas Haas.
Widows is scheduled for cinematic release on the 16th November 2018.
