‘Hidden Figures’ Trailer: Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe break barriers

20th Century Fox released the first trailer for the new film Hidden Figures. The film, directed by Theodore Melfi, tells the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (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 galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. The film also stars Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Gregory Alan Williams, and Maria Howell. Hidden Figures hits theaters on January 13, 2017.

Top 10 Best Performances of 2015

10. Chiwetel Ejiofor as Loomis in ‘Z for Zachariah (Photo: Roadside Attractions/Facebook) Ejiofor gives a restrained performance in this little known film and we loved every minute of it! The role of Loomis required vulnerability and strength, which Ejiofor delievered with such an amazing grace. 9. Idris Elba as Commandant in “Beasts of No Nation” (Photo: Netflix) Elba commanded the audience from the moment he appeared on screen. The British actor was powerful, strong, and bold with his choices for the role of an African war commandant in Netflix’s first original film. 8. Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E in ‘Straight Outta Compton (Photo: Universal) The Louisiana native was emotionally invested in this project and it showed through his brilliant performance as west coast gangsta rap pioneer Eazy-E. It’s not very often we see a newcomer carry a major motion film with raw talent, but that’s exactly what Mitchell did. His performance alone made the film what it is. Mitchell delivered a performance that was like a breath of fresh air in an environment filled with smog. 7. Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren in “The Hateful Eight” (Photo: The Weinstein Company) Jackson is cast in just about every movie release that allows for a black male character. Just when we think we’ve seen him do it all, he surprises us in a role like this one. Jackson’s role as a soldier-turned-bounty hunter seems as if it’s second nature to him. His character could have easily been associated with his many other similar roles in different films, but that’s not the case here. He effortlessly transformed into a somewhat charming and mysterious character we haven’t quite seen before. In turn, he delivered a breathtaking performance that was both thrilling and majestic. 6. David Alan Grier as The Cowardly Lion in “The Wiz Live” (Photo: Virginia Sherwood/NBC) Grier took this role by the mane and completely nailed it! They say that an actor has to be willing to play if he truly wants to act. Grier’s playfulness shined through in this role as the world witnessed some serious stage acting chops at play. David Alan Grier embodied his character to the fullest extent and created true magic while doing so. 5. Cicely Tyson/James Earl Jones (TIE) as Fonsia Dorsey and Weller Martin, respectively, in Broadway’s “The Gin Game” (Photo: Facebook) Two legends meet again on a Broadway stage. Jones and Tyson show up to give the audience what seems like a masterclass in stage acting. Their chemistry on stage puts the viewing audience in somewhat of a trance as they masterfully build up a rapport with one another. We simply couldn’t pick one over the other. 4. Regina King as Aliyah Shadeed in “American Crime Story” (Photo: Van Redin, ABC) King shined as a deeply religious Muslim woman trying to protect her brother during a murder investigation. She played the role with such a raw intensity that Hollywood was left with no other option than to hand her an Emmy win! 3....
