Regency Enterprises and 20th Century Fox have released a new trailer for “Widows,” a blistering, modern-day thriller from Academy Award winning director Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”) and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl”).

A remake of the 1980s Lynda La Plante mini-series, the film stars Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Garret Dillahunt, Carrie Coon, Jacki Weaver, Adepero Oduye, Jon Bernthal, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo with Robert Duvall and Liam Neeson.

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 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.

See-Saw Films’ Oscar winning team of Iain Canning (“The King’s Speech”) and Emile Sherman (“The King’s Speech”) are producers with Bergen Swanson (“Shame”) serving as executive producer.

“Widows” creative production team includes director of photography Sean Bobbit (“12 Years a Slave”), Academy Award®-winning production designer Adam Stockhausen (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”), costume designer Jenny Eagan (“Beasts of No Nation”) and Oscar®-nominated editor Christopher Tellefsen (“Moneyball”).

“Widows” will be released in theaters on November 16, 2018.
