Anticipation for this biopic about the legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson was so high that President Barack Obama even visited the set to match sure "everything was accurate". The story of Robinson, the Brooklyn Dodger who broke the Major League Baseball color line, goes deeper than just race and sports politics—it tells a story of a man who held strong to his convictions and the people who supported them.
42 stars Harrison Ford as the Dodger's innovative general manager Branch Rickey, the beautifully talented Nicole Beharie plays Jackie Robinson's love interest Rachel Isum, and newcomer Chadwick Boseman steps into the giant cleats of Jackie Robinson as the film's star.
With the president's approval, check out the trailer for the highly-anticipated '42' below:
