Hidden Figures Trailer

"It's not because we wear skirts, it's because we wear glasses." Fox has released a trailer for a film called Hidden Figures, directed by Theodore (Ted) Melfi, a drama about the many African-American women who worked at NASA. The story focuses specifically on three of them, known as "human computers", who helped worked with NASA in calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit (in 1962), and guaranteeing his safe return. The ensemble cast includes Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, and Glen Powell, among others. This actually looks pretty damn good, more than anything it's great to see this story about these wonderful women shown on the big screen with so much attention to detail. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Theodore Melfi's Hidden Figures, direct from Fox's YouTube:

Hidden Figures tells the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)-brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Hidden Figures is directed by producer-filmmaker Theodore Melfi, of St. Vincent and a few shorts previously. The screenplay is by Allison Schroeder and Theodore Melfi, based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly. Fox will release Hidden Figures in theaters on January 13th, 2017.
