Donald Glover’s coming back to our TV screens, sista scientists are getting their shine and Obsessed 2.0 is on the way for you suspense fans. These newly released film and television trailers have us excited for what’s to come.
This may be one time when the phrase “based on the incredible true story” is actually true. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe play three of the scientists and engineers at NASA who worked on the space program. Based on a book of the same name, the movie focuses on their challenges and triumphs as they helped to launch John Glen into space. Eye candy provided by Straight Outta Compton‘s Aldis Hodge and House of Cards‘ Mahershala Ali. The bad news is, we have to wait until January for this treat.
