The first look at the Hidden Figures movie is finally here. The trailer made its debut Sunday night during NBC’s Olympics coverage.

Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe play Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, respectively – “brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.”

Though these brilliant women were omitted from the history books, their stories will be re-told in this upcoming film. Check out the trailer below.

Hidden Figures hits theaters on January 13, 2017.
