We have been waiting a while for Will Packer and James Lopez to give us the first glimpse of their upcoming film, What Men Want and the first official trailer for the flick that stars Taraji P. Henson has finally arrived.

Taraji P. Henson says the “angry black woman” stereotype is used to silence women with legit complaints

The fim is a reboot of the 2000 film, What Women Want starring Mel Gibson and this time, Taraji is turning the tables and going inside the male mind and ends up getting a lot more than she bargained for.

Check out the official synopsis:

Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) 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 (Aldis Hodge) to the test.
