We've been paying attention since the all-star, black women leads of Hidden Figures were cast from Taraji P. HensonOctavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae. Now we get our first look as the film begins production.

The three leading ladies were all on set, in costume, on March 28th in Atlanta to film scenes for the movie and they are serving 1950s realness

In Hidden Figures, Henson, Spencer, and Monae play a team of mathematicians given the assignment by NASA to send, John Glenn, the first United States astronaut into orbit around the earth aboard the Friendship 7

Check out some photos from the set.
