New HIDDEN FIGURES Trailer Previews Story We Need Right Now (VIDEO)

At a time when race relations in America are at a tragic divide, this unknown true story is exactly the kind of inspiration we need.

In a follow-up to the trailer that debuted during the Olympics, this new look at Hidden Figures – about the small group of African-American women were integral to the mid-20th Century Space Race between the United States and Soviet Union – plays like a healing balm to a troubled national psyche. It stars Taraji P. Henson (TV’s Empire), Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer (The Help), and R&B artist Janelle Monáe.

While we certainly could use it right now, the film’s wide January release date should still prove timely, offering a hopeful vision from our past that can help us move forward after the heartbreaking tensions and grief of 2016.

With a cast that also includes Kevin CostnerKirsten Dunst, and Jim ParsonsHidden Figures opens nationwide on January 13, 2017, after a brief Oscar-qualifying run in New York and LA at the end of 2016.
