If you had told me that one of two baseball films released within a year of one another would be centered around themes of racism, I would have figured it to be the Clint Eastwood one. Fortunately, the baseball film starring Clint Eastwood was a steaming pile of excrement. Now this, Bryan Helgeland’s Jackie Robinson biopic titled “42″, looks like it will pack a punch for the movie going set.
Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey! There was a point, about midway through the trailer, where I said to myself “I sure hope this doesn’t cop out and run a Jay-Z track at the end”. Welp. “42″ opens on April 12.
