The trailer for the “Hidden Figures” movie is finally here. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe tell the incredible story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, respectively. Together, these brilliant African-American women trail-blazed gender and race lines; they worked at NASA and were the brains behind launching astronaut John Glenn into orbit. This operation changed the course of history, as it turned around the Space Race. Watch the trailer for “Hidden Figures” below, featuring original music by Pharrell, due out in theaters January 2017. Incredibly, Katherine Johnson is also included in the next Lego figure set proposal, which has reached its 10K supporter goal. Click here to check on the latest updates.
