Need a little something uplifting today? Well, the trailer for Hidden Figures--an upcoming movie about a female African American NASA mathematician (Katherine Johnson, played by Taraji P. Henson) who calculated numbers that helped John Glenn become the first American to orbit the earth during the 1962 Space Race--has arrived. There to give Johnson an assist? Her two equally smart and hilarious NASA colleagues Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae). If the three-minute trailer is any indication, the film--which looks super inspiring and funny--is going to be a massive hit come January 13, 2017.
Watch the trailer…and relish the soundtrack by Pharrell.
