Dailies | '42' Trailer: Jackie Robinson Breaks Racial Barriers (Video)

The biopic opens nationwide on April 12, 2013 coincide with beginning of baseball season

Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures released Thursday a new trailer for “42” — the Jackie Robinson biopic directed by Brian Helgeland, starring newcomer Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford.

The heart-grabbing, two-minute preview is a blend of old and new: ‘50s-style skirts, segregated bathrooms and Jay-Z beats.

“42” opens nationwide on April 12.

Watch Boseman as the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers’ second baseman, the first African American to play in the major leagues in the modern era, here.
