Directed and written by Brian Helgeland, “42”  tells the story of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play in American Major League Baseball.

Audiences will also get the chance to see the relationship between the two main characters – the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the game and American history.

“42” opens in theaters tomorrow.
