"You will remember me."
It seems to be a little early to think about baseball season, but March 31's opening day will be here before you know it, and only a few two weeks later, the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 will open in theaters. The first trailer for the biopic debuted in September, and focused on introducing a general overview of the legendary baseball player's life and looked destined to quickly become a classic. The latest trailer is equally impressive as it digs deeper into the racial tension that Robinson (played by Chadwick Boseman) experienced while becoming the first African American ballplayer in the major leagues, which included taking abuse from his own teammates.
