42 is the incredible true story of baseball legend, Jackie Robinson. Robinson broke the color barrier in a sport that was unwelcoming at the time. The film stars Harrison Ford sporting some serious prosthetic, and Chadwick Boseman as the legend himself. Take a look at the trailer below and my thoughts after.
Does Warner Brothers know how to make an Oscar darling or what? I really like the tone of the picture. It feels like a biopic, which could be good or bad to some. But it appears to convey what the change in the sport meant to our country as a whole. I'm not sold on Harrison Ford until I see some more footage; but as long as he doesn't phone in his performance like he does in every other film, I'm ok. We'll have to wait almost a year for this one, so be patient friends. I'll let you know when more is released.
