Taraji P. Henson stars in the hilarious new trailer for What Men Want
Empire and Hidden Figures star Taraji P. Henson leads a new trailer for Adam Shankman's upcoming comedy What Men Want – click below to watch it:
As eagle-eyed viewers may have already realised, Shankman's film is essentially a post-#MeToo era reimagining of of the story behind Nancy Meyers' 2000 comedy What Women Want, which starred Mel Gibson as a chauvinistic advertising executive who finds suddenly finds himself able to hear the internal thoughts of women following a freak accident.
In Shankman's film the roles are reversed and it's Taraji P. Henson who stars as a sports agent struggling to make an impression in an industry overwhelmingly populated by men. However, her fortunes suddenly change for the better after an encounter with a psychic leaves her with the ability to read the minds of her male friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Starring alongside Henson is a cast which includes The Goldbergs' Wendi McLendon-Covey, Erykah Badu, Shaquille O'Neal and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
Shankman's film is set to arrive next year, with a scheduled release in UK cinemas set for March 22nd 2019.
