After it was finalized that movie distributor giant (20th Century Fox) selected their candidates for ‘hidden figures’ while “#Hidden Figures” (the movie) came out, the magic was working.
Look at what being written up at #OSFMag brand sites ToriSpilling.com and OtherSideoftheFame.com can do for a movie: Put you in first place over one of the #1 sci-fi film running for four consecutive weeks that too, grossed over 700 million in its first week!
Allow us to toot our little horn beneath that giant leap.
#GodIs I have been told my entire career "Black women can't open films domestically or internationally". Well anything is possible. Most importantly this proves that PEOPLE LIKE GOOD MATERIAL. HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GENDER OR RACE. Agreed?! Thank you to everyone who supported this weekend even during the snow storm (which btw affected some of our biggest demographics). AND WE WERE IN FEWER THEATERS!!! What a proud moment!!! #HiddenFigures🚀 💋💋💋 P.S. telling me what I can't do only makes me focus on proving nay Sayers WRONG!!! 😘
THE FORCE WAS WITH US. It took over 50 years to tell the story of these 3 brilliant African American female protagonists. Without the research of @margotleeshetterly these women would still be hidden. This weekend we only had 2,471 theaters, while Rogue One' had 4,157 locations. We had snow storms that caused east coast region theaters to close, but #HIDDENFENCES still managed to win the race! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT A TICKET, BROUGHT YOUR FAMILY/FRIENDS, TOLD A FRIEND, POSTED ON SM, prayed for this film, etc. WE ARE Forever forever THANKFUL. WE DID THIS TOGETHER! Mary, Katherine, Dorothy and all the colored and human computers at NASA who took America to space are HIDDEN NO MORE. WE WILL NOT BE ERASED. 🙏🏿❤😭#hiddenfigures🚀 #starwars #rogueone Side note: I think it's awesome that two movies about space were dueling it out. Y'all know I'm a space Sci-Fi geek for life .🚀
Congratulations are in order for Taraji P Henson, Janelle Monae, and Octavia Spencer on their hard work and splendid representations of the lesser known forces behind John Glenn’s space mission at NASA. With pleasure, we blasted right with’em, and with great hopes for the movie’s success!
So that it could remain visible even as we continued to post even since the December 25th 2016 day we originally posted it, when wanted to give it the treatment the movie deserved.
By giving it its own background back drop and sticky posting it so that it could still be seen first in line even beyond posts thereafter, people obviously paid attention.
It makes us SO proud to see that the movie did as well as we wished it would-and without us dropping but ONE tweet!

We worked hard on that ad because we wanted the movie to be seen and appreciated the way it deserved to be appreciated.
With visible, preferential positioning for 15 days and a clever writing up (by tying in “hidden figures” in employment at 20th Century awaiting 3 California natives) magic happened: Three lucky people got a job and ‘hidden figures’ and Hidden Figures the movie blasted off-even above the popular, critically acclaimed fan favorite: Star Wars Rogue One!
Congratulations on a job well-done. And thanks to any of ToriSpilling.com and OtherSideoftheFame.com’s readers who’ve been “met at the door” with the blog post for 15 days and took it upon themselves to go out at support the film!
