Paramount Pictures has released the first official trailer for What Men Want, a gender-flipped remake of Nancy Meyers’ 2000 film, What Women Want with Mel Gibson.
Directed by Adam Shankman, the movie stars Taraji P. Henson as Ali Davis, portraying an executive at a sports agency who is constantly being outdone by her male colleagues, and eventually getting passed over for a promotion due to her gender.
Then, after drinking a special tea potion concocted by featured star Erykah Badu, who plays a psychic, Ali Davis gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts after awaking from suffering a mild head injury.
The film also stars comedians Tracy Morgan and Pete Davidson, along with actors Aldis Hodge, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and more.
What Men Want hits theaters on January 11, 2019.
