“Yes, they let some women do some things at NASA, Mr Johnson. And it’s not because we wear skirts; it’s because we wear glasses“.We do love those fascinating stories and Hidden Figures looks one of those movies, the incredible true story of the African-American women who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history.
Twentieth Century Fox has sent us a brand new clip called ‘We Wear Glasses’ were Katherine (Taraji P.Henson) putting her soon to be husband Jim (Mahershala Ali) in his place.
Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—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 galvanised the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
Hidden Figures stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Glen Powell and Kevin Costner and is directed by Theodore Melfi.
The movie is set for a February 2017 UK& Irish release date possibly 24th February (TBC).
