It feels like an age since Steve McQueen wowed critics and audiences with the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, but a trailer has finally emerged for his followup.

Based on Lynda La Plante's 1983 British TV series, Widows follows the exploits of the widows of a group of criminals who choose to continue their late husbands' line of work. Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn pens the script.

The all-star cast includes Viola Davis, Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert Duvall and Daniel Kaluuya.

Widows is in UK/ROI cinemas November 9th. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

The official synopsis reads:

From Academy Award®-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® 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.
