The Academy Award-nominated historical film Hidden Figures starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae has been cleared for a March 28th landing on Digital HD followed by 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD appearances on April 11th.
Hidden Figures is the true story of NASA engineers Katherine Johnson (Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Monae), African American women who were at the center of launching John Glenn into orbit at a time of deep racial segregation.
Though Hidden Figures did not win any Academy Awards, it was nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress (Spencer) and Best Adapted Screenplay. More impressive is that the modestly budgeted film of $25 million has crossed $182 million at the worldwide box office and continues to attract audiences.
