Watch those three preview clips of Hidden Figures to get a better idea of what to expect from Hidden Figures, the upcoming drama movie directed by Theodore Melf from a script he co-wrote with Allison Schroeder based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly and starring Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Glen Powell, Mahershala Ali, and Aldis Hodge:
Hidden Figures – New computer
Hidden Figures – Slice of pie
Hidden Figures – It’s because we wear glasses!
“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.”
I wish the film would inspire our youth to learn mathematics… but I doubt it will. Anyway, great story, I will see the film. And you?
The film will be released on January 6, 2017.
