First Look: Viola Davis Commands In The Trailer For Upcoming Thriller 'Widows'

Culture & Entertainment

Viola Davis has proven time and time again why she is among one of the best actresses in all of Hollywood.

Whether she's commanding your weekly attention on the hit ABC drama How To Get Away With Murder or winning an Academy Award for her exhilarating turn in 2016's Fences, Davis consistently knocks it out the park with every performance.

This fall, fans are in for a treat as Davis leads an impressive female cast in the highly-anticipated film Widows, from 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen. The upcoming film's first trailer has just been released and it's safe to say, you've never seen Viola Davis in a role quite like this one.


The film's synopsis sounds like it could be one of the year's most memorable offerings. A remake of the 1980s British TV series of the same name, Widows is set in contemporary Chicago and follows the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' heist attempt. Tensions build when Veronica (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 Liam Neeson, Daniel Kaluuya, Brian Tyree Henry, Andre Holland, Colin Farrell, and Robert Duvall. Kaluuya and Henry are coming off two of the year's biggest hits in film and television respectively, starring in Black Panther (Kaluuya) and FX's Atlanta (Henry).

Widows hits theaters November 16. You can check out the official trailer and images from Widows below:
