Hidden Figures Trailer

HUFFINGTON POST – Taraji P. Henson plays a human computer and NASA whiz in the upcoming 20th Century Fox film “Hidden Figures.”

 

Based on the upcoming book by Margot Lee Shetterly of the same name, the film focuses on the untold true story of NASA scientists and mathematicians Katherine Johnson (Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe, in her debut role) who helped launch astronaut John Glenn into orbit.

 

“Hidden Figures” will depict the lives of some of the black women ? and black scientists, period ? who were so integral in NASA’s early 1960s success, but whose stories were silenced for so long.

 

Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst also star in the film, with original music from Pharrell Williams. Look for it in theaters near you on Jan. 13, 2017.
