Opening January 25 in cinemas (Phils.) from 20th Century Fox to be distributed  by Warner Bros., “Hidden Figures” also stars Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Parsons. With a score from multiple Grammy winning musician Pharrell Williams, the film is compelling and highly entertaining.

Octavia Spencer whose powerful performance in “The Help” won her a Best Supporting Actress in the Oscars stars in another riveting role in the inspiring story of women of courage in “Hidden Figures.”

Spencer’s role, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) and Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) made remarkable accomplishments against all odds and breaking barriers when they  helped America win the space race that paved the way for future generations.

Meanwhile “Ma’ Rosa,” the official Philippine entry in the best foreign language film category of the 89th Academy Awards, made it to the Top 10 list of an international website AwardsCircuit.com
