12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn have teamed up to bring us heist thriller Widows.

It’s the story of four women who have nothing in common, save for debt to criminals that they’ve been saddled with from their dead husbands. They team up and conspire to extricate themselves from the mess that they’ve inherited. Set in modern day Chicago, this featurette delves into how it couldn’t have been placed anywhere else.

Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki and Cynthia Erivo star as the quartet in question, while Widows also features Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jacki Weaver, Jon Bernthal, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Robert Duvall and Liam Neeson.

Widows is set to hit Australian cinemas on November 22.
