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.

I love sports movies, and this one looks fucking amazing! “It’s hard not to be romantic about Baseball.” - Billy Beane Ain't that the goddamn truth.

Wow, I got chills watching this when Jay-Z's song came in. I'm so excited for this, Harrison Ford looks to really lend himself in that role.

That looks great, I don't even like baseball, but I suppose it isn't really about that. As much as I don't like Jay Z, that tune fitted in nicely.

"42" is like a tepid glass of water that gets better with each sip. Support it on opening day Friday, April 12th, 2013 and thereafter, but especially on that weekend America. https://www.facebook.com/notes/consultation-marketing/42-fortitude-as-reviewed-by-donald-dumb-aka-vitamin-dee/346578655442964
