The new Hidden Figures trailer is here and we already want more!

This exciting new drama from director Theodore Melfi is based on an untold true story, and features a star studded cast, including Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Parsons

The film follows Katherine Johnson (Taraji P Henson) and her two co-workers Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), as they calculate flight trajectories for Project Mercury. The incredible team of African-American women helped NASA catch up in the space race, eventually enabling John Glenn to become the first American astronaut to make a complete orbit of the Earth.

The 20th Century Fox film will be in Australian cinemas from February 23, 2017.
