The synopsis for Hidden Figures is as follows:
Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, three 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.
From the trailer it looks set to give us an unknown underdog style story told on the big screen with the lead trio looks set to share great chemistry together and the material being handled with care to make sure it doesn’t come across as a lifetime movie. Hidden Figures stars Taraji P. Henson (Katherine Johnson), Octavia Spencer (Dorothy Vaughn), Janelle Monáe (Mary Jackson), Kevin Costner (Head of the Space Program), Kirsten Dunst, Mahershala Ali, Glen Powell (John Glenn) and Jim Parsons.
Hidden Figures is scheduled for cinematic release on the 13th January 2017 (US) and the 24th February 2017 (UK).
