If there’s one film Academy voters should be looking out for next year it’s Hidden Figures, which sees some of today’s biggest talents tackling a little known story.
Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, and Kevin Costner, the film tells the true story of Katherine Johnson, an African American mathematician, scientist and physicist who calculated the flight trajectories that helped launch John Glenn into space. Fighting against sexism and racism in a tense time, she overcame countless obstacles and cemented a place in history.
The latest trailer really delves into the prejudice that Johnson and her colleagues Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson faced on a daily basis, and is an inspiring watch thanks to the considerable talents of the three leads.
Look out for Hidden Figures when it reaches cinemas January 13, 2017.
