When Get Out opens tomorrow it’s going to introduce American audiences to Daniel Kaluuya in a big way. (Yes, Sicario was great, but it was also a fairly low-key project.) The movie has a near perfect critical consensus so far and is on track for a strong opening at the box office; just to sweeten Kaluuya’s weekend a little more, Variety is now reporting that he will join Steve McQueen’s next film, Widows. The movie is an adaptation of a 1983 British miniseries of the same name about a trio of widows who come together to finish the armed robbery each of their husbands died carrying out, and it’s got a fantastic growing cast. Kaluuya joins Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, André Holland, and Cynthia Erivo, who will be working off a script from Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn. In 2018, Kaluuya will also be appearing in Marvel’s Black Panther. So, things are going pretty damn well.
