Jackie Robinson biopic 42 enters The Basement

Yeah, I know -- what the fuck is wrong with us?!? First a trailer for The Hobbit and now one for a baseball movie. Street. Cred. Lost.

Well, TFB. The Jackie Robinson biopic 42 looks like a damn fine movie. And it stars Indiana Jones/Han Solo/Blade Runner himself Harrison Ford as Robinson's manager. Plus it's written and directed by Brian Helgeland, who's brought us such bad ass flicks as Payback, Mystic River and Man on Fire.

I defy anyone not to get carried away by this trailer. Robinson was the first black man in Major League Baseball and his story deserves to be told. Even non-baseball fans can agree to that. But I'll let the preview speak for itself.

42 hits theatres April 13, 2013.
