The official trailer for the movie "42" has been released, and it looks like this one will be a must-see for sports fans.
It's the story of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American MLB player, and it chronicles his struggles as he came into the league and eventually became a bonafide superstar.
The movie features familiar faces like Harrison Ford and John C. McGinley, and Chadwick Boseman stars as Robinson.
If you're not familiar with the entire story of Robinson's ascension to Major League Baseball, it's definitely something you should read about, and then see this movie when it comes out this year.
Robinson was not only a pioneer, he was also one of the greatest 2B ever to play the game. He's a hero both on and off the baseball field, and recently became the only player whose number is retired by the entire MLB.
