'42' Trailer: Jackie Robinson Movie (With Jay-Z Track 'Brooklyn Go Hard')

This looks amazing.

Synopsis -

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are teaming up with director Brian Helgeland for "42," the powerful story of Jackie Robinson, the legendary baseball player who broke Major League Baseball's color barrier when he joined the roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers. "42" will star Academy Award(R) nominee Harrison Ford ("Witness") as the innovative Dodger's general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the show, and Chadwick Boseman ("The Express") as Robinson, the heroic African American who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues.

"42" arrives in theaters on Apri 13, 2013.

I'm not a big fan of Jay Z being used for this trailer, but I'm exicited for 42 none the less. The writer/director of this film has done quality work in the past, and Harrison Ford looks like he actually cares about acting again. I had to do a double take when I saw Branch Rickey come up in the trailer.
