Paramount Pictures has unleashed a new trailer for its upcoming comedy “What Men Want” starring Taraji P. Henson and Tracy Morgan.
The film — which flips the script on the Nancy Meyers-directed, Mel Gibson-fronted romance “What Women Want” from 2000 — sees Henson plat the character of Ali, an ambitious sports agent trying to crack the glass ceiling in a male-dominated work environment.
Frustrated by the limitations imposed on her by the ‘boy’s club’, she seeks the advice of a ‘spiritual guide’ (played by Erykah Badu) who concocts a potent tea that then gives Ali the power to hear men’s thoughts.
Directed by Adam Shankman (“The Wedding Planner”, “Hairspray”, and “Bringing Down the House”), the film is set to bow in theatres on January 11, 2019.
