Widows (2018)

Landing on Netflix UK this week is the 20th Century Fox movie featuring an all-star cast and comes from the director of 12 Years A Slave.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie if you’ve yet to watch it:

“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, Linda, Alice and Belletake their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.”


Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021)

Director: Darren Lynn Bousman
Cast: Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Samuel L. Jackson, Marisol Nichols, Dan Petronijevic, Richard Zeppieri, Patrick McManus, Edie Inksetter, Thomas Mitchell, Nazneen Contractor

From Lionsgate, we got the most recent SAW movie coming to Netflix just a year following its theatrical release.

Chris Rock headlines the cast where he plays a police detective teamed up with a veteran and a rookie to investigate a series of murders that are reminiscent of movies prior.
