Trailer Talk - 42 (2013)
42 (2013) – Not only is this a historically based period piece, but it is the story of one of the greatest athletes who ever lived. There have been films made about Jackie Robinson before, but it never hurts to have a new and current retelling of his journey to becoming the first African American player in Major League Baseball. I also like the idea of Harrison Ford playing Dodger executive Branch Rickey. I’m not familiar with Chadwick Boseman (playing Jackie Robinson), but the cast also includes Alan Tudyk, Christopher Meloni, Lucas Black, and John C. McGinley so it should be fairly strong. 42 is scheduled for an April 2013 release, so it will beat the big summer rush and will hopefully find a nice audience.
