Latest A-Team trailer specializes in the ridiculous

04.01.2010

In the new A-TEAM trailer, Jessica Biel explains to her people that the team in question are "the best" and that they "specialize in the ridiculous." No shit? This was the same movie that gave us a teaser trailer with Bradley Cooper freefalling inside a tank shooting down a rival airplane. I think the ridiculous part has been hammered home already...

While I have to say that the action looks over-the-top enough to be enjoyable, some of the other beats in this trailer kinda piss me off. Too much winky-winky. B.A. has PITY and FOOL tattooed on his knuckles? A character whistles the classic theme song? I am, however, thrilled to see a brief cameo by classic "That Guy" actor Henry Czerny. He's not listed in the cast credits on IMDB but if you skip to the :33 second mark, you'll see my favorite 90s villains. Check out the new trailer below or head to Apple's trailer page to see it in HD!

Extra Tidbit: If they're going to have a character whistle the theme song, why not just play it in the trailer?

Is it going to be in 3D? Because if it's not in 3D i'm not going to it.

Fun.

The characterization is really the most important part for me, so yea. Looks like they nailed it. Though seeing the van get crushed kinda made me cringe a bit, but thats cool.

Happy

That trailer made me quite happy. The action looks great, the characters seem to take after their tv counterparts very well, and even the story seems to be something interesting. As a big fan of the show, I am satisfied with how this is looking. And you can't beat Neeson in an ass kicking role.

The "ridiculous" line is a good idea because it justifies the crazy action (unlike Charlie Angels which was ridiculous with no justification). Can't wait for this movie though!!!! Carnahan's doin his thing!.......I want to be Liam Neeson when I grow up!

I watched 30 seconds and turned it off. Don't need the movie spoiled for me. I know the plot, and the characters - so for me this trailer isn't needed.

I am sure it is fun to see some tidbits - I just know this trailer is going to give too much of the fun away.

For the younger folks out there not familiar with the TV Show, perhaps you want to watch this - for the rest of us, I say hold off, folks.

Looks fun

I've been watchingthe original show a lot lately, and this looks like a good way to switch things up and modernize the overall concept. Count me in.

Liam Neeson? Sharlto Copley? B.A. refusing to get on a plane? Jessica Biel's sweet ass?
Can I get my ticket now, please?

you know what they should do - remake A-Team, Airwolf, Knight Rider, and Magnum PI then put them all together for an Avengers-style flick! Yeehaw!

sweet!

As a fan of the original show, this looks totally awesome. It's like they took all the best parts of the show and turned them up to 10. I think the cast is completely inspired - didn't know about the villains! Some top notch villain talent there too! I'm 100% there

Sharlto's line

I liked the trailer, but, found it odd that in his intro, he only said the word clear, and, then he had that line at the end. worries me about his accent.

Ha ha, nice.

Looks and sound like the A-Team to me. Having recently watched the entire series, no matter how ridiculous this movie is, the show was more ridiculous.

Also I really like that they cast the great Sharlto Copley as Murdock.

2010 is the year for supreme action movies, man. Thank goodness the metrosexual sensitive action hero fad is done.

I think it looks like fun. It's not like the original show is some kind of masterpiece or something. The show was just a goofy action series with over-the-top violence and funny one-liners. Also, I didn't know Patrick Wilson is the bad guy...awesome!

If they were going to make B.A. a Mr. T clone, why not just cast Mr. T?

Now it just seems like the guy is impersonating Mr. T and badly at that. They should have kept the looks the same but made the character more its own than a Mr. T clone.

Impersonating Mr. T? Have you HEARD or SEEN Mr. T? Rampage is playing B.A. as straight as he possibly can. His voice doesn't sound anything LIKE Mr. T's. He's not wearing any gold, his Mohawk is dialed down too. The only thing they got in common is that they're both black.

Neeson is badass. But this look like crap. I apologize for mixing this up with The Losers before. I mean, it looks Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle bad.

Not too shabby

I don't expect a brilliant masterpiece but I'm open to a fun ride for shits and giggles.

"If they're going to have a character whistle the theme song, why not just play it in the trailer?"

Because it's their cute way of paying homage, like when LL Cool J started singing and dancing to the theme song of SWAT in SWAT. Awful moment, but I guess they think it's clever.

whoa

Over-the-top... yes. Ridiculous... yep. But I'm up for a crazy action movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. I think the feel of this is perfect. The show was never too serious (no one ever died, over-the-top action, etc), so why should the movie be?

Isn't it playing in the trailer? At least the same part he's whistling...I dunno - anyway i digs this trailer a lot - even more than the first one. This is high on my must see list this year, and so far it doesn't look like Joe Carnahan is going to disappoint. (Fingers Crossed)
