Red Band Trailer For Taraji P. Henson’s ‘What Men Want’

Remember that Mel Gibson film What Women Want? Of course you don’t, because it was 18 years ago [GASP]. Apparently someone at Paramount Pictures remembered, because we’re getting a ‘modern spiritual sequel’ to it starring Taraji P. Henson.

This morning, a red band (that means strong language, kids) trailer for What Men Want dropped, and we’ve got to say, we’re interested???

Ali Davis is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world… until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest to the test.

What Men Want stars Taraji P. Henson, Aldis Hodge, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Tracy Morgan.

It’s currently slated for a January 11th 2019 US release, followed by March 22nd one in the UK.
