Filed under: Film FlickersBaseball

jackie robinson george shuba 42 iconic moment handshake baseball race black player inspiration

The Jackie Robinson movie 42 is getting some decent buzz and reviews, but we have a feeling it's because those people reviewing the movie weren't Jackie's former teammates and also have no idea how things actually went down! LOLz!

According to 88-year-old George 'Shotgun' Shuba, the story the movie tells behind the iconic photo of Jackie shaking hands with him isn't quite right. In fact, they just decided to rewrite history altogether and CUT him from the scene!!

Here's what George says:

42's Racist Portrayal Of Pitcher Fritz Ostermueller Has Family Enraged!

fritz ostermueller(1)

We had a feeling this movie was gonna stir up some type of DRAMz!

Fritz Ostermueller's daughter, Sherrill is furious over how her dad was portrayed in the flick, 42, and cannot believe that producers would represent her pops as a racist when he really wasn't one.

During a very relevant scene in the film, the MLB pitcher threw a ball at Jackie Robinson's head, and shouted at him, "You don't belong here!!!," and considering that in real life, the ball apparently hit Robinson's arm, we can see why Sherrill is MAD!!

Sorry, Jackie Robinson!

Tom Cruise just proved that he can still send a movie to the top of the box office!

In fact, with the actor's latest sci-fi extravaganza, Oblivion, he secured himself one of his biggest opening weekend ever, as it pulled in a pretty impressive $38.1 million!

Excluding the Mission: Impossible flicks, this his is most lucrative since War of the Worlds!

And that was when Dakota Fanning was still a child!

Despite his throne's usurpation, however, the aforementioned baseball legend's new biopic, 42, held steady at the #2 spot with $18 million, while Ryan Gosling's new indie The Place Beyond the Pines expanded release by 1,500 theaters and made it to #6, with $4.7 million!

Ch-ch-check out the reason of this weekend's box office top tenAFTER THE JUMP!!!

42 Hits A Box Office HOME RUN! Scary Movie 5 Does Not!

42 weekend box office

Sorry, Lindsay Lohan!

Even your toilet-clogging, crazy antics on the set of Scary Movie 5 couldn't generate it enough buzz to put it at the top of the box office for its opening weekend!

Instead, the distinct honor went to the critically-acclaimed Jackie Robinson bio-pic 42, when came in number one after making an estimated $27.3 million between Friday and today!

And that's pretty impressive in itself, seeing as the majority of movie-goers paying to see the flick were over the age of 25!

To be fair to Scary Movie 5, however, we're pretty sure everyone else below that age went to see the fifth installment of the horror movie parody franchise, as it managed to secure itself the #2 position, with $15.2 million.

Even that, however, wasn't enough to make back its production cost of $19.5 million! OUCH!

But you can see what over movies manage to fill out the rest of this weekend's box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
