Watch: Final Trailer for 'Hidden Figures' Promises an Intelligent Story
"Every time we have a chance to get ahead, they move the finish life." 20th Century Fox has released one final trailer for the inspiring new drama Hidden Figures, hitting theaters in January. This film tells the story of 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 full cast features Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, and Glen Powell. The first trailer looked great, and this one is just as fun. I'm glad Fox is putting all their weight behind this film and giving it the full support it needs to find a big audience. Enjoy.
Here's the final theatrical 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.

The January dump date makes me sad, but it still looks good to me.

There's something dishonest about this movie. At that point in time NASA had it's pick of the litter and could have scrounged up every white guy with a bachelors degree in Math or Physics. But they want us to believe that during the HEIGHT OF SEGREGATION they couldn't find any and needed some black women to do it? Give me a break. This is revisionist nonsense. I'm sure there were SOME black women there but no way they were the key to the launch. It just doesn't add up from a common sense point of view.
