Stephen Colbert Mocks "Hidden Fences" Golden Globes Flub With Trailer for Combined Films

"Based on the true story of people who think all movies about black people are the same movie."

Monday night's Late Show With Stephen Colbert mocked those who flubbed the title of Hidden Figures, calling it "Hidden Fences," at Sunday night's Golden Globes by airing a trailer that combined the film about three African-American female mathematicians who helped launch America into space with Denzel Washington's big-screen adaptation of August Wilson's Fences.  

In the Hidden Fences trailer, Colbert mashed up scenes from both Golden Globe-nominated films to make a silly movie about launching a fence into outer space. 

"Based on the true story of people who think all movies about black people are the same movie," the voiceover says. It continues, "If movies starring black people confuse you, then this is the film you've got to see."

Denzel Washington's Fences character can be seen shouting at the fence in one scene, while in another Kevin Costner's Hidden Figures character talks about how taking a fence and shooting it into space has never been done before. It's the movie "white people at the Golden Globes were talking about."
