Black Boy Joy on a thousand!
Actors Brian Tyree Henry and Daniel Kaluuya made their way to the Widows premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival held inside the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. Both Brian and Daniel are starring in the crime thriller, starring opposite Viola Davis, and when they saw each other on the carpet, it was all love.
Widows is about 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 (Viola Davis), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
After the success of Get Out and Black Panther, Daniel Kaluuya is BOOKED, honey. He's currently doing voice over for an animated mini TV series titled, Watchership Down. He's also gearing up to star in a new drama titled, Queen & Slim.
Yas, QUEEN! Oscar winner Viola Davis rolled up on the TIFF scene serving up WAKANDA fierceness in a black strapless Elizabeth Kennedy gown. She looked AH-MAZING. Of course, her husband Julius Tennon was right by her side.
