HipHollywood was on the scene in Toronto where Pharrell Williams debuted new tracks from the upcoming film Hidden Figures starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe.

Williams, who is a composer for the film, gave the audience at the Toronto International Film Festival a treat with live performances of three new songs from the Hidden Figures Original Soundtrack, including “Running” and “I See Victory” featuring Kim Burrell.

Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae), 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 film is slated to hit theaters January 13, 2017.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
