Hidden Figures blasted off to a great start in theaters on Christmas Day!
The incredible film, which stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe, scooped $515,499 on Christmas Day and is projected to bring in a 2-day total of $955,000 in just 25 theaters.
“It played well everywhere, and I don’t think there was a theater where we weren’t No. 1 or No. 2. The No. 1 theater was in Atlanta, followed by AMC Lincoln Square in New York City,” said Fox domestic distribution Chris Aronson.
Hidden Figures tells the story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia) and Mary Jackson (Janelle) — 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, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
The film is absolutely incredible and it opens everywhere on January 6! Don’t miss it!
