The trailer for What Men Want, starring Taraji P. Henson, has arrived to lighten up your Tuesday.
The comedy follows Ali (Henson), a hardworking sports agent trying to move up the ladder at a company dominated by men, when a mysterious incident suddenly gives her the ability to hear men’s thoughts. Of course, Ali uses her newfound powers to get ahead and blaze a trail of her own.
It was announced back in November that Paramount would tackle a remake of the 2000 Nancy Meyers romantic comedy What Women Want with Henson attached.
What Men Want also stars Tracy Morgan, Pheobe Robinson and Aldis Hodge. The film is produced by Will Packer.
Henson told Entertainment Tonight that her role in the film is “something I’ve worked my entire career for.”
And, when it comes to what men really are thinking, she told ET, “I don’t need to know everything. I need things left to the imagination, especially the dumb men. I can at least imagine that they’re smart.”
What Men Want hits theaters January 11.
