Watch the Trailer for Gender-Swapped Remake 'What Men Want'

Taraji P. Henson can hear men's inner thoughts in the new movie "What Men Want," which hits theaters January 11, 2019.

The actress plays Ali, a sports agent frustrated by her office's boy's club. After she's passed over for a big promotion, she turns to a psychic for help. Thanks to some psychedelic tea and a freak accident, Ali can suddenly read the minds of the men around her and use it to her advantage at work.

Tracy Morgan, Shaquille O'Neal, Max Greenfield, and more pop up in the trailer.

The movie is based on Nancy Meyers' "What Women Want," starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt. The rom-com was a box office success in 2000, but it definitely feels a bit dated these days.
