Watch the First Trailer for Taraji P. Henson Comedy ‘What Men Want’


The first trailer for the Taraji P. Henson-starring What Men Want has hit the web.

Directed by Adam Shankman, the comedy is a gender-swapped remake of Nancy Meyers’ 2000 film What Women Want, which featured Mel Gibson in the lead.

In What Men Want, Henson plays Ali Davis, 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 (Aldis Hodge) to the test.

Hodge, Tracy Morgan, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Tamala Jones, Phoebe Robinson, Max Greenfield, Jason Jones, Brian Bosworth, Chris Witaske and Erykah Badu co-star in the film, from producers Will Packer and James Lopez.

What Men Want is due out in theatres on 11 January 2019.
