Here's a new full trailer for the upcoming baseball biopic "42," starring newcomer Chadwick Boseman as the legendary Baseball player Jackie Robinson during the 1940's when Brooklyn Dodgers General Manager Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) signs him to be the first African-American ballplayer in the Major Leagues. Robinson must now cope and overcome the racial prejudice on and off the field, as he soon earns the respect of his fellow ballplayers and the nation.
"42" is scheduled to open in theaters on April 12th.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are teaming up with director Brian Helgeland for "42," the powerful story of Jackie Robinson, the legendary baseball player who broke Major League Baseball's color barrier when he joined the roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers. "42" will star Academy Award(R) nominee Harrison Ford ("Witness") as the innovative Dodger's general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the show, and Chadwick Boseman ("The Express") as Robinson, the heroic African American who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues.
