Jackie Robinson might be one of the most influential African Americans in US history. He broke numerous boundaries by becoming the first African American to break out in Major League Baseball as a Brooklyn Dodger, and now, his story is being brought to the big screen.
The first trailer for writer and director Brian Hegeland’s 42 has hit the web, and it is intense. Starring Harrison Ford as Dodgers executive Branch Rickey and Chadwick Boseman as Robinson, you could almost feel the Oscar buzz creeping into your skin already.
Check out the trailer below. The film, which hits theaters April 12, 2013, also stars Alan Tudyk, John C. McGinley, Christopher Meloni, Hamish Linklater, and Lucas Black.
