Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for writer/director Brian Helgeland’s real life drama 42.  The film chronicles how Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boesman) and Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) worked together to eradicate segregation in baseball in 1947.  This longer trailer does a nice job of selling the film as more thrilling and exciting than your typical cradle-to-grave biopic (again enhanced by Jay-z), but I think the first trailer popped a bit more.  The performances look impressive and I like the visual aesthetic that Helgeland has settled on, so here’s hoping we’re in for an engaging iteration of a truly powerful story. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer, and click here to watch a new featurette.  The film also stars Christopher MeloniJon BernthalAlan Tudyk, and John C. McGinley.  42 opens on April 12th.
