"42" The Jackie Robinson Movie (Official Trailer)

The trailer for "42" marks another monumental film that is on the horizon.  "42" depicts the trials and tribulations of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American player to make it to the Major Leagues. At a time when racism was rampant, Robinson was able to overcome to make it in a predominantly "white" sport. Chadwick Boseman of The Express, takes on the lead role playing Jackie Robinson. The movie is also starring Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, "the Dodger’s general manager who first signed Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the Major Leagues." Robinson's major league team was the "Brooklyn Dodgers," so Jay-Z's track "Brooklyn We Go Hard" is appropriate.  "42" is set to hit theaters on April 12, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
