Below, we have an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip featured on both the digital/VOD and Blu-ray releases, that takes you inside the real-world location used for the hideout the widows meet up at to plan their job.

Best Soundtracks of 2018

The films of 2018 featured lovely, strange, and sometimes downright terrifying music. Just what it is that makes a good soundtrack? Is it something that stands out, intruding on scenes? Or is it something that hangs back, to the point where you don’t even notice it? Or perhaps it’s something in between. Or maybe the best film scores are the ones that trigger a specific emotion somewhere within your mind; a memory, a regret, a loving embrace. Music that cuts right through to your very soul. Music that you won’t soon forget. These are the best soundtracks of 2018.

Widows dog

Several actors in Steve McQueen’s new heist film Widows have appeared in multiple movies this year: Carrie Coon was in Avengers: Infinity War, Elizabeth Debicki was in The Tale and The Cloverfield Paradox, Daniel Kaluuya was in Black Panther, and Brian Tyree Henry is having a heck of a year by appearing in If Beale Street Could Talk, Hotel Artemis, White Boy Rick, and more.

But there’s one other Widows cast member who’s having a prolific 2018: Olivia, the West Highland white terrier who serves as Viola Davis’s pet pup in the film. And if you’re thinking, “Hmm, where else have I seen her this year?”, you may have missed our headline: Olivia also popped up in Netflix series Insatiable and had a memorable part to play in the party-gone-wrong comedy Game Night.

widows featurette

“We’re after the truth. I don’t go to a location with a stencil. I adapt to the environment,” reads a quote by director Steve McQueen at the beginning of the newest Widows featurette about the film’s Chicago location. The gritty heist thriller, penned by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, is set in the Windy City, and couldn’t take place anywhere else. The featurette dives into why that is, and how Chicago helped shape the highly anticipated movie.
