Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford play some ball in the new 42 trailer
I’m sure I’ve said it before, but one of my favorite genres of film is the sports genre, specifically baseball movies. No matter how bad they are I still find myself getting goose bumps when the home team makes the winning play, what’s even better is when the trailer can cause the hairs on my spine to rise. Such is the case with the upcoming trailer for 42, which is a biopic of one of baseball greats Jackie Robinson (played by Chadwick Boseman). Maybe it’s the background music from Jay-Z, but I think it’s just watching a character overcoming an obstacle to do something he loves. I swear it gets me every single time.
Directed by Brian Helgeland, 42 stars: Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford, Alan Tudyk, Christopher Meloni, John C. McGinley and Lucas Black. 42 opens in theaters on April 12, 2013, but before America’s greatest past time starts up for the summer. Check out the trailer below.
