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 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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..there's no problem, in principle, with a white filmmaker making a movie about a black cultural hero, or vice versa..”
by Dana Stevens [Slate]
“..but his screen time is all too brief. What we're left with is good intentions but not a particularly good movie..”
by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald]
“..it's a perfectly unexceptional but slickly made, sincerely acted, often entertaining, sometimes manipulative and always watchable blend of action..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
