Watch the inspiring trailer for ‘Hidden Figures’ starring Taraji P. Henson

Hidden Figures tells the true story of three black women who worked at NASA during its formative years and, through their mathematical and scientific calculations, helped NASA launch John Glenn around the earth. Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe , Hidden Figures is certainly one of the most inspiring trailers we've seen in a while.

Based on the Margot Lee Shetterly book of the same name, Hidden Figures also stars Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons but the real focus is on the three main women who, in addition to their NASA contributions, are also battling racism and sexism on an everyday basis.
