Movie and sports fans are getting their first glimpse of an upcoming Jackie Robinson biopic starring newcomer Chadwick Boseman. The trailer for next Spring’s 42 has hit the web and if the early footage (which features an almost unrecognizable but convincing Harrison Ford as legendary Brooklyn Dodgers owner Branch Rickey) is any indication, the film looks to be poised to be an inspiring hit. Certainly the choice of Jay-Z’s “Brooklyn Go Hard” as the background track makes for a rousing, albeit left field, choice.
Check out the first clip and let us know what you think. Will you go to see Jackie Robinson’s story retold on the big screen?
