Spoiler Talk: The A-Team

Well it is the decade of the remake and it still is. This weekend the world was introduced to The A-Team all over again and I completely and totally loved it. The movie definitely brought in some big names and actors that I definitely enjoy. Overall the team was the strongest part of the entire movie and I really liked all of them. Bradley Cooper played Face, Liam Neeson played Hannibal, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson played B.A., and Sharlto Copley played Murdock.

I cannot really find anything that is flawed in this movie even though I did have fun thinking about how certain things worked. Overall, the movie was just a fun time and I couldn’t stop watching. Copley definitely stole the show most of the time he was screen, but I may be a little biased because of loving District 9. I really loved how much fun it looked like all the actors where having during the entire movie. Cooper definitely had a smirk that fits the Face character.

When you add Patrick Wilson and Jessica Biel to the mix of talented actors, it definitely makes for a fun ride. I really hope everyone, fans or not, goes to check out this movie just to have a good time. It may not be Shakespeare, but it was a good time at the movie theater and really what more could you ask for?

Well before I just drag you to the theater, let’s get to the SPOILER TALK! The following are my thoughts on The A-Team with spoilers a plenty. What would be even better is if you left your thoughts in our comment section as well.

Movie Review: The A-Team

The A-Team
Directed by Joe Carnahan
Written by Joe Carnahan, Brian Bloom, Skip Wood
Starring Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Sharlto Copley
Rated R
Release Date: June 11, 2010

We are barely into the summer movie season, film analysts in La-La land are already predicting the lowest summer box office intake in many years, but who can blame them? With Sex and the City‘s less than sexy opening box office number and Iron Man 2‘s less than invincible reviews, this year’s summer lineup looks to be less than stellar. Perhaps what this sagging box office needs is a group of soldiers for hire, who, if you have a problem and no one else can help, can solve all your problems.

Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith (Liam Neeson), Templeton “Faceman” Peck (Bradley Cooper), B.A. Baracus (Quinton “Rampage” Jackson), and H.M. Murdock (Sharlto Copley) were sent on a covert mission during the Gulf War to retrieve stolen U.S. Treasury plates, and things naturally goes awry. The explosive results leave their commanding officer dead, the plates taken by rogue soldiers of fortune, and this “A-Team” framed for a crime they did not commit. With nothing left to lose, The A-Team sets out to clear their name, avenge their C.O.’s death, and have a lot of fun doing it.

Watch Now: ‘The A-Team’ Trailer #2

The A-Team movie posterA new trailer for The A-Team, the big-screen adaptation of the popular 1980s television show, is now online.

Watch it here below.

Joe Carnahan directed the film, which has, what I think, is a spot-on cast for the members of the A-Team: Liam Neeson as team leader John “Hannibal” Smith; Bradley Cooper as Templeton “Face” Peck; Sharlto Copley as “Howling Mad” Murdoch; and former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus.

Now, we all know how wrong these TV to film jumps can be — just take a look at Miami Vice — but judging by the two trailers released for this The A-Team movie, it looks like it’s a faithful adaptation of the TV show. As far as 80s TV shows go, I think The A-Team was top of the crop, so I’m really hoping this movie does it justice.

IDW To Release ‘A-Team’ Movie Tie-In Comics

A-Team Shotgun WeddingAre you eagerly anticipating the upcoming summer movie event The A-Team? Can’t wait until the film hits theaters June 11, 2010? Well I’ve got good news for you!

IDW Publishing is partnering with Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising (Fox Licensing) to launch two A-Team comic book series this March, entitled A-Team: Shotgun Wedding and A-Team: War Stories. Each comic will be an original story written and illustrated by some of the industry’s biggest names. Each series will be available as single issues in March and April, and collected into individual graphic novels in May and will give fans an in-depth look at the upcoming action-adventure film from Twentieth Century Fox, which will be released in theaters June 11, 2010.

Tom Waltz (editor and co-writer on the comic) had this to say:

“Like many, I was a huge fan of the original A-Team television series in the 80’s. I’m happy to report, after reading the new movie script, the updated A-Team movie has all the wit, swagger and kick-ass action of the original series, but tells a story much bigger than was possible on the show. For our comics, we’ve worked directly with the filmmakers to build a solidly action-packed foundation for a new generation of A-Team fans.”

Watch Now: First Trailer For ‘The A-Team’ Movie Is Here

A-Team

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!

First Official Image Of The New ‘A-Team’ Together

A short time ago, someone was able to snap a photo of the cast of Joe Carnahan‘s (Smokin’ Aces) new TV show adaptation, The A-Team while on the set (Read: Super Geek Peek: New Images From ‘Green Hornet,’ ‘A-Team’ & More!). The image was decent, but it was far away and it looked like they were on break, so it was hard to go nutty over. Now the very first official image of the group together has been released, and you get a really strong idea of how the characters will look and how they’ve modernized some small things.

In the image is Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Wedding Crashers) as Face; former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus; Liam Neeson (Kingdom of Heaven, Taken) as Hannibal; and Sharlto Copley (District 9) as Murdoch.

Click on over to the other side to check out the brand new first image of the gang together, and for comparison’s sake, I’ve included a lovely little photo of the original cast above, so feel free to click and compare away.

Super Geek Peek: New Images From ‘Green Hornet,’ ‘A-Team’ & More!

Titans

A party bag of new images from some big time new movies have been released all over the ‘net today. The images are basically just some sneaky behind the scenes shots of filming, but they’re our very first look at these movies, which makes them pretty exciting. There’s also a new image of Sam Worthington from Louis Leterrier‘s Clash of the Titans from Empire, which you can see at right!

The first movie we’re getting our first good look at is The Green Hornet. Splash News has a collection of pictures from filming, and they show writer/producer/star Seth Rogen as the Hornet himself, along with sidekick Kato, played by Jay Chou. As you can tell, they’re being pretty faithful to the look of the characters, so fans should be pretty excited.

UFC Star Rampage Jackson To Replace Mr. T In ‘The A-Team’ After All?

Rampage

Almost a year ago, we found out that Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan would be directing the new adaptation of The A-Team. Around the same time, there were rumors swirling that former UFC light-heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson could possibly be playing the role made famous by Mr. T: B.A. Baracus. These rumors weren’t taken very seriously, of course, and eventually many other names were rumored, which moved Jackson slightly out of memory.

It appears that this story is back in sight, as it is being reported by the Vancouver Sun that Rampage has shown up in Vancouver to begin filming for the movie. The report basically states that the fighter is there, and has been seen signing autographs, so technically it’s not a 100% confirmation. Though it does seem that Rampage’s much-anticipated upcoming fight with Rashad Evans has been called off for a second time — the first being due to injury, and this time, it’s assumed, so that the movie can be filmed.

‘Smokin’ Aces’ Director Next In Line To Revive ‘The A-Team’

A-Team

There’s been chatter about a movie adaptation for The A-Team for a while now. Most recently it was in the works with John Singleton set to direct and Ice Cube in as B.A. Baracus. It was also said that UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson auditioned for the same role. Singleton eventually left the project due to issues with casting. No word on if this is because of auditions by UFC fighters or not, but he apparently didn’t like something.

Now that that recipe didn’t work, a new team is being assembled, starting with negotiations to hire Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan to take the wheel. Because Singleton left due to casting issues, there’s a chance that actors may be still attached, but that’s not confirmed. Considering how chaotic Aces was, I’m thinking this may be a good choice.
