See the trailer to the new Jackie Robinson movie, “42”

I’m not the best judge of movies based on trailers, but after watching the trailer to “42,” the new Jackie Robinson biopic coming out next April, I’m quite optimistic and enthused.  You can watch the trailer here.

Chadwick Boseman plays Robinson. Harrison Ford plays Branch Rickey.  Based on the trailer, it’s the first time Ford has actually acted with some sort of fun and emotion since the “we’ve come to see zee tapestries” scene from “Last Crusade.”  It would be very cool to see him finally embrace his inner character actor, and maybe he’s doing it here.

Yeah, I’m gonna go see this. Are you?
