Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae lead NASA to new heights in the trailer for Hidden Figures

The untold true story about NASA’S first successful space mission is revealed in the upcoming film Hidden Figures.

Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorthy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) are a team of African-American women who provided NASA with crucial mathematical data in order to catch up in the Space Race.

From being completely overlooked by the company because of their race and gender, these three women were determined to let their intelligence prove their worth. And according to their calculations, it was their mathematical abilities that had a big hand in making John Glenn (Glen Powell) the first American to orbit the Earth.

Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons and Kevin Costner also join the cast.
