*MUST-SEE TRAILER OF THE WEEK*
Release Date: April 12, 2013
The first trailer for the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 is simply too good to be arriving this early— now we have to wait nearly seven months to experience what promises to be an explosively entertaining history lesson. The preview contains images that linger, like #42 strolling out of the dugout and Robinson (played by Chadwick Boseman) getting beaned by a white pitcher. It's got some tremendous dialogue ("I want a player who's got the guts not to fight back!"). It's got Harrison Ford in Scottie Pippen mode as an all-star supporting player, and it's got Jay-Z spitting about Brooklyn! In 90 seconds, the 42 trailer delivers everything necessary to suggest that it got the story right. The trailer is... wait for it... a home run.
