Hidden Figures

Based on a true story of great minds in the Space Race, watch the new trailer for Hidden Figures...

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Directed by Theodore Melfi and starring Taraji P. Henson (Person of Interest, Empire), Octavia Spencer (The Help, Snowpiercer) and Janelle MonĂ¡e, alongside Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Parsons, the film is due for release next February.
