[UPDATED] An official poster and images have been released.
With all the same old tired films coming out of Hollywood these days, it’s always great to see a film that tells that diverges from the status quo. Such is the case with the upcoming film Hidden Figures. The film tells the incredible untold story of three brilliant African-American women-Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)-who worked at NASA and were the brains behind one of the greatest moments in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. This feat restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and excited the world. Hidden Figures arrives in theaters on January 13, 2017. Watch the trailer below:
