Second Trailer for Jackie Robinson Film '42' with Chadwick Boseman
"You will remember me." Wow, this looks great. At least they know how to cut a great trailer! Warner Bros has debuted a second trailer for Brian Helgeland's 42, a baseball biopic about the legendary first black MLB player Jackie Robinson. While this film co-stars Harrison Ford as Dodger's manager Branch Rickey, it's actually Chadwick Boseman who is the real star playing Robinson in the film, and boy does he look like something special. We also finally get a glimpse at Alan Tudyk as a racist. More than anything, this is just a fantastic trailer for a film that I think looks spectacular, I'm extremely excited to see it - even in April.
Watch the second trailer for Brian Helgeland's baseball biopic 42, in high def from Apple:
42 stars Harrison Ford as innovative Dodger's general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB exec who first signed Robinson to the minors and helped to bring him up to the show, and Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson, the heroic African American who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues. Tells the powerful story of the legendary baseball player who broke Major League Baseball's color barrier in 1947.
42 is written and directed by Oscar winning writer-filmmaker Brian Helgeland, previously of Payback, A Knight's Tale and The Order. He's most known for his writing, credited on L.A. Confidential, Conspiracy Theory, Mystic River, Man on Fire, Green Zone and Robin Hood. Warner Bros will open 42 on April 12th.
