With Hidden Figures storming the number one spot in the US a new clip and featurette on the music of the film has been released.
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.
In the clip, Taraji P. Henson explains that she is not a Russian spy.
In the ‘Hidden Figures: Harmonies’ featurette, we learn more about the music behind the film with interviews from the film’s producer and music composer Pharrell Williams, along with Hans Zimmer and the award-winning musician Herbie Hancock.
Hidden Figures is out in the UK February 17th.
