PanARMENIAN.Net - Harrison Ford has featured in the first trailer for the upcoming baseball movie 42, Digital Spy said.

Newcomer Chadwick Boseman stars in the lead role of baseball legend Jackie Robinson in the biopic from director Brian Helgeland.

Ford stars as the Dodgers' general manager Branch Rickey, who first signed Robinson to the minor leagues.

The trailer also features Jay-Z's Jackie Robinson-referencing track 'Brooklyn (We Go Hard)'.
