Today we have 7 new movie clips for the Jackie Robinson biopic "42". From the clips it's obvious that the production values are great, as we've come to expect from Hollywood period films. Chadwick Boseman as Robinson looks to give a great performance. Harrison Ford is a bit over-the-top in a couple of scenes, but he does manage to build a sincerely emotional moment in a quieter scene from the final clip. The film is written and directed by Brian Helgeland ("Mystic River", "L.A. Confidential") and also stars Christopher Meloni, Jon Bernthal, Nicole Beharie, John C. McGinley and Alan Tudyk. "42" will be released on April 12, 2013.
