“42″ An Upcoming Film About Jackie Robinson – New TV Spot


Warner Brothers has produced a story about the life of Jackie Robinson.

Synopsis by IMDb: “The life story of Jackie Robinson and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey”

For years Director Spike Lee has spoken about making a Jackie Robinson film, that never happened. Im glad someone is going to tell this story.

I like the use of lines and movement in these two shots, they emulate his journey and show he has a focused goal. The film makers seem to have made great dramatic elements from set design. I would not be surprised if the set becomes a character in itself.
