If you weren’t aware there will be a biopic of the great Jackie Robinson releasing that stars Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford and more. As you should know, Robinson was the first to break through the color barrier in major league baseball. The trailer sets a great tone for the movie and I think many of us here at MMXLII will be seeing it, the question is how many of you out there are going to check it out?
Description: 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.
