Warner Bros just released a longer, more intriguing second trailer for the upcoming Jackie Robinson biopic 42.

The film, directed by Brian Helgeland, follows the powerful story of Jackie Robinson, the legendary baseball player who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier when he joined the roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers. 42 will star Academy Award(R) nominee Harrison Ford (“Witness”) as the innovative Dodger’s general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the show, Chadwick Boseman (“The Express”) as Robinson, the heroic African American who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues, and Nicole Beharie as Rachel, his wife.

42 opens in theaters on April 12.
