Hidden Figures is currently sitting pretty at number one at the US box office and has just been BAFTA nominated for ‘Best Adapted Screenplay.
So to celebrate this Twentieth Century Fox has released a clip and featurette from the film. In the clip entitled “New Computer,” we see Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) being introduced to her new boss (Kevin Costner) and department at NASA.
‘Modern Figures’ series featurette, where Tracy Drain a Mechanical Engineer at Jet Propulsion Lab, discusses Katherine Johnson’s legacy and being a woman in the field of engineering.
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.
