New Images From 42 Reveal More About The Film

Posted by monique On March - 23 - 2013 0 Comment

“42,” the long-awaited (at least for me) biopic about baseball legend Jackie Robinson, will be in theaters very soon and in anticipation of the release, we’ve got some new pictures to show you! Check them out below the post!

“42″ is directed by Brian Helgeland, produced by Thomas Tull and executive produced by Dick Cook, Jon Jashni, Jason Clark. Chadwick Boseman stars as Jackie Robinson. Also starring in the film are Harrison Ford, Nicole Beharie, Christopher Meloni, Andre Holland, Lucas Black, Hamish Linklater, Ryan Merriman and T.R. Knight.

“Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. ’42′ tells the story of two men—the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball. In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball’s infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey’s hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking—ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.”

You can check out more about the film at the film’s official site. “42″ will be in theaters April 12.
