With such an incredible performance by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae in ‘Hidden Figures’, it’s not unbelievable that the movie would do good in the box office. Though we may all agree Hidden Figures was great movie and deserves the awards they received, I don’t think any of us thought it would be consider a Hollywood Blockbuster.
The Wrap reports that ‘Hidden Figures’ has accrued a domestic box office total of $162.8 million as of this past weekend. This puts the film, based on the true story of NASA’s black female mathematicians, ahead of last year’s blockbusters, ‘X-Men’ ($155.4 mil), ‘Star Trek’ ($158.8 mil), and ‘Jason Bourne’ ($162.4 mil). Congrats to the cast and crew of this magnificent movie.
