Trailer: 42

Slashfilm got its hands on the first trailer for Brian Helgeland’s Jackie Robinson biopic ‘42‘, which stars Harrison Ford as Dodger’s executive Branch Rickey and Chadwick Boseman as the legendary ballplayer (who also played Floyd Little in the Ernie Davis biopic).

It remains to be seen how this stacks up against the under-appreciated HBO flick ‘Soul of the Game‘, which looked at the competition among Robinson, Satchel Paige, and Josh Gibson to break the color barrier. We’ll find out when this opens April 12, 2013.
