In celebration of the wide release of Hidden Figures this Friday, Jan. 6th, 20th Century Fox has released new character posters.
The 1960s-inspired posters feature Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe as Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson. These brilliant Black women made history (even if they were forgotten until recently) as the brains behind one of NASA’s greatest missions: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
Along with being inspired by the ’60s, the character posters are also reminiscent of campaign posters from the decade. They even feature slogans.
