New International Trailer for 'Hidden Figures' Women at NASA Movie
"By standing beneath a spaceship, we are living the impossible." 20th Century Fox has released a new full-length international trailer for the drama Hidden Figures, hitting theaters in January. This film is about three intelligent women who worked for NASA and helped provide some of the math equations and calculations to send astronaut John Glenn into orbit (in 1962). The first trailer had plenty of good footage, and this one has even more. The impressive cast features Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, and Glen Powell. This looks much nerdier than I was expecting, but still totally triumphant - even the music is more inspirational in this trailer. It may perhaps be a nice hidden gem arriving early next year. Take a look below.
Here's the new extended international trailer for Theodore Melfi's Hidden Figures, 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.
