20th Century Fox released the trailer to ‘Hidden Figures’ Sunday, and the film has caused a buzz. The trailer has 12-million views on Facebook in 48-hours. ‘Hidden Figures’ is the ultimate underdog story for nerds.
‘Hidden Figures’ is 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 Theodore Melfi, and stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, and Glen Powell.
The film hits theaters on January 13, 2017.
