In the inspirational second trailer for the true-story drama Hidden Figures, Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) grouses as she and her two colleagues, Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) and Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), are stuck by the side of the road after their "piece of junk" car breaks down. When a police officer approaches, he promptly asks for identification from the three ladies. Katherine then proudly hands over her NASA card, to the shock of the officer.
After being escorted back to their office, a problem quickly emerges in NASA's attempt to catch up in the "Space Race." But to the delight of Space Task Group director Al Harrison (Kevin Costner), it's a problem that math wiz Katherine may just be able to solve. And along with Mary and Dorothy, her revolutionary calculations actually allow John Glenn (Glen Powell) to become the first American astronaut to make a full orbit of the Earth.
