42 Wins Big at Box Office

Chadwick Boseman in "42"

Nearly 70 years since he joined the Dodgers, Jackie Robinson's groundbreaking story still hits it out of the park.

Sports biopic 42 debuted at the top of the box office over the weekend with $27.3 million, much stronger than many analysts and pre-release polling had suggested. Starring relative unknown Chadwick Boseman as the legendary baseball player, 42 easily bested the weekend's other big new release, Scary Movie 5, and received an A+ CinemaScore from audiences, a feat accomplished by blockbusters like The Avengers.
