    Hidden Figures Official Trailer

    The film recounts the story of the African-American mathematician Katherine Johnson and her two colleagues, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, who helped NASA catch up in the Space Race. Using their calculations, John Glenn became the first American astronaut to make a complete orbit of the Earth.


    I have been waiting for this movie since I first heard whispers that it would be produced.  I wasn’t sure how much muscle would be put into bringing this story to the big screen, but you can tell a lot about the scale of a movie based on who they hired for the music.  Pharrell is working on the music, which isn’t a surprise because he’s also one of the producers of the film, but Hans Zimmer is also composing for the score.  This is a big movie and I think they might be putting it into Oscar consideration. 

    The official release date is January 13th, but to be considered for an Academy Award, a film must premiere in Los Angeles County by December 31st.  A lot of January movies have a limited preview just before the Oscars cutoff so the film will still be fresh in the minds of voters, and then they’ll open wide post-holiday.  That has to be what’s going on here because I can’t see them putting this film out just after the cutoff when it feels ripe for Oscar bait.

    Then again, it’s a movie about Black folks being heroes and nobody is getting whipped.  Y’all know the Academy loves to hand us White Guilt awards when we’re downtrodden.  Keep me posted if you hear anything about a limited release or a For Your Consideration… campaign.
