The very first trailer for Joe Carnahan‘s (Smokin’ Aces) theatrical version of popular TV show The A-Team has found its way online. Only one official image had been released for the this movie so far, which makes this trailer everyone’s first really good look at the movie.
As far as judging books by their cover goes, this is one of those titles we kind of laughed at when hearing it would become a movie. This is because we only know it in its cheesy ’80s form, and the first thing that we think of is Mr. T. Thankfully, The A-Team is a show that is well-suited for an update, and most of it transfers to modern styles with ease. The trailer makes the movie look like a lot of fun. It also makes the movie look like it’s directed by Michael Bay, but it definitely looks like it could be great action movie.
Be sure to head over to the other side and check out the trailer for yourselves. Share your thoughts in the comments!
The most important part of The A-Team is of course the cast. Featuring Liam Neeson (Kingdom of Heaven, Taken) as Hannibal; Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Wedding Crashers) as Face; Sharlto Copley (District 9) as Murdoch; and former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus. Most of the cast is great, with Rampage being the big wild card. Looking at his background and the guys surrounding him is incredibly confusing to some, but as I said when his casting was first announced, the man is hilarious and has all the qualities to win you over. If they didn’t have such a strong cast I would be highly doubtful of this film, but with who they have, I really think it’s destined for popularity.
