Filming for "42" took place in Birmingham back in May. The film tells the story of Jackie Robinson, the first African American Major League Baseball player.

It stars Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford, and Christopher Meloni and features the music of Jay-Z.

A casting call in Birmingham brought paid roles for 200 extras for the film.

Some of the sites used during production include Rickwood Field and the Alabama Theatre. You will have to wait a little while to see the full film though, it is set to release April 12, 2013.
