Wanna feel old? It’s already been five years since 12 Years a Slave. But don’t stroll too far down memory lane because director Steve McQueen is back, baby, and he’s returning with unshakeable star power. His latest is called Widows, a heist thriller in the vein of Michael Mann that finds McQueen teaming up with Gone Girl juggernaut Gillian Flynn and a cast of, oh, pretty much everyone and their mother.
