First Poster For 42
by Travis Leamons on February 7, 2013

Baseball is known as “America’s Pastime,” and of all sports it is probably the best one represented in cinema. This year we will get the Jackie Robinson pic, 42, and one would think that there’s no way Hollywood could screw up telling such an important piece of history. I mean it is Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color barrier, a feat that in and of itself puts it in the top three sports moments/stories of all time. His number, 42, is also the most celebrated number, having been retired by Major League Baseball.

Brian Helgeland (writer-director of A Knight’s Tale, Payback) chronicles the life story of Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford).

Warner Bros. has revealed the first poster for the film and all I can say is that it’s a steal.

42 hits theaters on April 12.
