Life, the Universe, and Everything (i.e. Baseball): Trailer for 42

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | September 24, 2012 | Comments ()

I like the decision in the trailer to use the Jay-Z instead of something period appropriate. Rather than being an anachronistic disconnect, it sets the mood for storytelling that is meant to tell a story that speaks to us today instead of just being a window to a past.

Plus, it's got Harrison Ford taking a stab at a serious meaningful role for what seems like the first time since he told Gary Oldman to get off of his plane. Remember when Ford wasn't a caricature? I'd like to say I'm rooting for a late career resurgence for Ford, but the price might very well be another couple of Indiana Jones disasters, and I'm not sure that is worth it.
