First Trailer and Teaser Poster for ’42′ Revealed!
The first trailer and teaser poster for director Brian Helgeland’s Jackie Robinson biopic, 42, has gone online. Where the trailer quickly distances itself is in the film’s fearless to take on race relations, a central part to Robinson’s rise to fame in the sports world. We also witness a very interesting transformation in our favorite actor.
42 stars Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford, with Christopher Meloni, Jon Bernthal, Alan Tudyk and John C. McGinley, and opens April 12th, 2013. Watch the trailer here and tell me if you spot Harrison Ford the first time!
Here’s the official synopsis for 42:
