A-TEAM Trailer is coming this weekend, here's the breakdown!

Published at: Jan. 4, 2010, 5:05 p.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here - I feel weird about this A-TEAM feature. I love the cast & director, but honestly - I'd much prefer for Carnahan to be bringing us his ESCOBAR epic - but if there has to be an A-TEAM movie, this is how I'd like to see it get handled. It does disturb me a bit that it seems to be such a direct lift off of the TV show, but then, we'd gripe if it wasn't, right? Just a very odd feeling project, need to see this trailer though, stat!

Hi Harry, if you choose to use this, you can call me HazMatt. Man, am I on the jazz now! As a movie theatre projectionist, I get the upcoming weekend's trailer hard drive on Monday. I went to ingest that bad boy today, and what did I spy? The first official trailer for The A-Team! It's mere presence surprised me, but the trailers 1:41 run time had me salivating. Just enough time time to watch it twice before we had to start seating for Avatar. Enough to satisfy my craving, but not enough to memorize everything and give you a full rundown. What I do remember... Starts off as you'd expect, with just a hint of the theme music and it's variation of the classic voiceover (Apparently they were arrested one year ago for a crime they didn't commit), which runs throughout the trailer. We see Hannibal in his colonel uniform attending a military funeral. Next we get quick shots of the team breaking out of a prison bus and then Hannibal meeting with Face on a beach. Some footage of fast cars and a shot of B.A. getting out of one. It's filmed from the rear, so we can get a good look at the mohawk! That just leaves Murdock, who's introduced in his familiar jacket/cap getup, complete with pilot's headset. From there it's all high action mixed with nostalgia, sure to leave fans of the show with a "plot-hatching Hannibal" sized grin. Everyone involved gets to break out a well known piece of of their character. Hannibal gets to chomp a stogie and proclaim "I love it when a plan comes together". B.A. gets to act hella-tough and lament on how much he missed his van. Which of course gets a big a reveal as any of the characters. Which is only fair, there are few vehicles more iconic than that GMC van. Face, full of his trademark charisma, questions the sanity of Hannibal's plan, tells B.A. that he has a bad attitude and makes out with Jessica Biel's Lt. Sosa character. And Murdock, who get's the least amount of screen time, still finds time to show us how off kilter he is by calmly announcing that their planes wing is on fire. After the escape and the character revealing we get around 30 seconds of the team on their mission which is all ziplines and gunfire and helicopters. It ends with the bullet riddled A Team logo and the tagline "There is no plan B". Don't look to me for a accurate critical review of this thing. I'm far too biased. I absolutely love the show and it looks like they're trying to keep it's fun spirit alive whilst ratcheting up the action several notches. So it's more than alright by me. But I can offer my opinions on a few small matters. From what I gleamed in the trailer, it looks like Bradley Cooper is staying the truest to his television counterpart. Something about the way he delivers his lines reminds me of Dirk Benedict's Faceman through and through. On the other hand, Sharlto Copley's Murdock seems to be from from the south. Unless that's just Murdock putting on a southern accent, as Murdock would do! Looks like Quinton Jackson is just playing a gruffer version of himself, which is fine, as Mr. T did the exact same thing. As for Liam Neeson... Look... Nobody will EVER truly replace george Peppard as Hannibal. I'm sorry, but he IS Hannibal. If he were still alive today I'd be the first signature on the petition to have his 80 year old face gracing the screen as the teams true leader. But having said that, Liam Neeson seems well suited to the role. He has that twinkle in his eye. The one that says, "I'll probably land us in a situation that will may us killed, but we'll have one hell of a time getting there.". He looks the part and sounds the part and I don't think he'll find a lot of negativity from the fans. My only gripes about the trailer are: 1. The theme music isn't fully there, just a tease of what it might sound like performed by a full orchestra and 2. I maybe wrong about this, but I don't think I saw a single flipped jeep! Believe me, this trailer does everything a good teaser should, it touches all the right bases without giving too much away. I don't know where you'll be this June 11th, but me personally? Even if it's just for two hours, I'll be hiring... the A-Team.

    Could be planty...

    by seanny_d

    But it's not like this guy is saying this is his unbiased opinion. It sounds like anything they put on screen with the A-Team would have been exciting. And who plants for a trailer? That's a little bit extreme since everyone's going to be able to see for themselves online within the week.

    by Madcapper

    Now, many years later,I suspect a revisit to the show might not be. The film could be interesting, The cast is not as bad as I thought it would be...And Mr. Calder, I too pity the fool. Wisdom from BA..true wisdom..

    I'm still not sold...

    by Jaka

    ...because I just don't think it was needed, or wanted, really. And strangely enough, you do sound kind of potted Strangwood. Nothing personal, maybe you're just a HUUUUUGE fan of the show. But that was far more detailed and knowledgeable than what I'd expect most people to get from a 1:41 trailer. As I've said before, this is a "word of mouther" for me. If a lot of friends and or AICN folk start pouring praises upon this film, I'll go see it. If not, it'll wait for cable.

    Question...do they even make those GMC vans anymore???

    by Jobacca

    I too was a huge fan of the show-that being said,i'm not expecting much. As long as the characters resemble the ones from the show and shit blows up,I'll be a happy camper. You other fucks got your big dumb movie last summer with Transformers 2-Electric optimus Boogaloo-this year Imma go watch the A-Team blow shit up. Yee-Haw!!!!

  • Jan. 4, 2010, 5:49 p.m. CST

    Mr. T was the least coolest character on the show...

    by GutsSpill

    Hannibal was the coolest, backed right in front of Murdock, followed by Face. THEN B.A. Mr. T's acting was so bad in the show. But it was part of it's charm, I guess. Dwight Schultz should have gotten more physical acting jobs after that show. He's a great actor.

    I LOVE IT WHEN ANOTHER TV ADAPTATION COMES TOGETHER....

    by TehCreepyThinMan

    Actually, I don't. It's just another example of the complete and total creative bankruptcy of Hollywood and their desperate attempts to rebrand and repackage everything for the fucking morons of America. They'll even take a Spanish movie (Rec) and put out a fucking remake (Quarentine) a year later. They are absolutely against doing anything original that isn’t based on some TV show, old movie, board game, children’s toy or theme park ride. The money grubbing rat bastards that run the Hollywood studio's should be lined up in front of a wall and machine gunned. These people are a fucking cancer on North America cinema and are doing to movies what their buddies on Wall Street have done to the worldwide economy.

    What sort of rating is this shooting for?

    by OutlawsDelejos

    I just can't imagine Joe Carnahan doing a 80's revival PG-13 movie. And with Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Sharlto Copley all coming off the back of extremely successful R-Rated films it seems illogical to make it less than R, but the source would dictate a PG-13.

    by TehCreepyThinMan

    Easily one of the biggest one hit wonder hacks of the last ten years. This guy makes ONE movie that was saved by some great acting (Narc) and was thrown a dozen projects, only to fuck up his deal on ALL OF THEM, makes a complete piece of shit (Smokin Aces) and people are STILL willing to hire this fucking wanker? Hey, how about for the sequel they get Troy Duffy then round off the trilogy by having Richard Kelly screw this franchise right into the fucking ground. This movie is soo DOA that it’s spirit is riding next to Michael Jackson on the train to Hell.

A remake of the A-Team is not creative, it's a copout and nothing but a grab for money. That's all this is for... they're like wow, let's get all the old baby boomers in here who remember this crappy TV show. Wonder what other shitty old TV shows they can remake? I'm sure they haven't reached the bottom of the barrel yet.

    by TehCreepyThinMan

    I fucking HATED the goddamn TV show and, to be honest, I didn’t like the movie when I first saw it because my perception had been polluted by Lethal Weapon/Bad Boys 2 and their proxies. But I’ve come to actually love the movie over the years because it isn’t played as some clichéd buddy-cop movie. It’s a movie about a pair/team of professionals who don’t fuck around and make quips like giggling faggots when staking out a location where the life of one of their teammates hangs in the balance. Its deadly seriousness is what makes it unique and I wish that I had recognized that quality when I first saw it.

    by TehCreepyThinMan

    Even though the movie represents EVERYTHING I hate about North American cinema/culture, its deliberate attempt to offend everyone on the planet makes me love the movie dearly. It’s the type of movie that Lloyd Kaufman would have made which isn’t a coincidence as Neveldine and Taylor are Troma fans. Furthermore, the fact that they got that movie made for aprrox. 20 million and shot it on prosumer camera’s shows a level of innovation and forward thinking that I don’t see in the 150 to 300 million dollar turds that Hollywood keeps squeezing out. Crank 2 was crazy, wildly inventive and unpredictable which isn’t something I can say for Avatar, Star Trek, Transformers 2, G.I. Joe, Terminator 4, Wolverine etc…and I enjoyed it ten times more then any of those floaters.

    by YackBacker

    It's not the end of cinema as we know it, not even close, but really- who gives a flying fuck about a new A-TEAM story? Has modern mythology been fleeced so thoroughly that it's come to remaking this? I bet you if this show didn't have a catchy theme song, nobody would even remember it existed. If only RIPTIDE had a better composer! DAMMIT!

    One thing I admire about Liam Neeson

    by CountryBoy

    On his way into Natasha Richardson's funeral, he passed all these paparazzi filming him -- and instead of ducking and hurrying away, he SMILED AND WAVED at them. For some reason, that really impressed me: it was as if he were saying, "I know, it's terrible, but life goes on. Might as well smile." It was oddly moving, and made me like him even more.

    Its a TRAILER!!

    by Bass Ackwards

    What would be the point of having a plant for a trailer? For something that is going to be freely available in a week? FREE! What would be the purpose of putting out a fake positive "review" of a teaser? What would that accomplish? If it was a plant don't you think they'd at least tell us what film its going to be attached to? It'd be easier for the studio to just shoot out an e-mail that said A-Team trailer being released on XX day with this film, and will be live on the internet on XX day. Why go to a niche website, spoil the impact of the trailer by describing it before its release, and not give any info on how we're going to be able to see it ourselves. Just to have the guy give it a positive review? Of the trailer! <p>If they wanted to engender positive notions of the film through a review, they'd send out a plant talking about seeing early rough cut footage, a plant on having read the script, a plant maybe having seen the film, something where that opinion doesn't become immediately invalid as soon we can judge it for ourselves when it becomes freely available. "Oh, well I saw the trailer myself and didn't like it, but that guy last week did give the trailer a positive review, so maybe I'll give the movie a chance." There's ZERO purpose in having a plant on something we will all be able to view and judge for ourselves, for FREE. Seriously I feel like my head is going to explode that this is even an argument. Its just a geek who's hyped for the movie.

  • Jan. 4, 2010, 10:11 p.m. CST

    The point for having a plant for a trailer...

    by Jaka

    ...would be that "studio people" read these talkbacks. There has been a very "meh" "not sure about it yet" vibe in these talkbacks for The A-Team movie. Having someone HYPE the TRAILER would be an attempt to get said moviegoers excited for said trailer and in turn, the movie.

  • Jan. 4, 2010, 10:13 p.m. CST

    And I'll say it agaaaaaiiiinnn....

    by Jaka

    I don't EVER call plant. In fact, I usually think it's silly. But as I said before, the knowledge this person had/has of the show and movie coupled with the way they wrote the above description just felt way too "inside" to me. Maybe I'm wrong, but it didn't feel like a normal "spy" report.

  • Jan. 4, 2010, 10:21 p.m. CST

    Fair enough

    by Bass Ackwards

    I feel like calling plant is over-thinking it (IF the studio were to plant I feel it'd be more along the lines of "I've seen the trailer, and it kicks ass" rather than "I've seen it, now let me spoil it"). But rereading my posts, I'm clearly over thinking this as well and way to into thisdiscussion. Especialy since after all we're only talking about the trailer. Guess we'll be back in the talkback that's out up next week when the trailer is actually out (just now realizing I've come to think ofthis site as a series of talkbacks, rather than something with, you know, writers and stuff).

  • Jan. 4, 2010, 10:38 p.m. CST

    by CHRISTIANBALES_BILEDUCT

    Guys, introduce a script section. Seriously. The script for The A-Team stinks and that means that the movie has a high chance of whiffing. <br> If you followed these projects earlier in the process you'd be far less likely to end up with egg on your face when the chicken (turkey) comes back to roost and I think you'd have a better time! Part of being a geek, in my opinion, is devouring everything related to the properties you love, and scripts are included in that. Hell, if you don't have enough time, I'll do the reviews for you - at this moment in time it'd be like I was doing you a favour...

Pretty sure this is an enthusiastic A-Team fan. I too work in a theater, but I'm just an usher for the now. Perhaps some day I'll make projectionist but that's a story for another time. Anyways, they do get to see the trailers before hand. And once or twice we've watched 'em in a group. Haven't seen the A-Team one yet though. But I believe this one.

    I don't normally approve of origin movies

    by JT Kirk

    I didn't realize The A-Team film was gonna be an origin story. I'm not sure how I feel about that. On the one hand, it's always the thing that dominates screentime so the actual plot only has to fill the last 3rd or less and be super thin. I fucking hate that. On the other hand, the origins here are fertile ground, something casually tossed around the show and hinted at, but open enough to play with. As for the trailer, no flipped jeeps means SOMEONE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

When was the last time AICN had an impact on some things box office performance? You can not write a positive review on this site any more. You're instantly a dick and a plant in the eyes the talkbackers. The talks backs have become so laughable that no one gives a shit. I wrote a review a few years back for the Turtles movie and it got posted here. I got called a plant cause I kind of enjoyed it. I live in the UK, in a town called Lincoln that no one has heard of.

    "I think about my father being called 'boy,' my uncle being called 'boy,' my brother, coming back from Vietnam and being called 'boy.' So I questioned myself: 'What does a black man have to do before he's given the respect as a man?' So when I was 18 years old, when I was old enough to fight and die for my country, old enough to drink, old enough to vote, I said I was old enough to be called a man. I self-ordained myself Mr. T so the first word out of everybody's mouth is 'Mr.' That's a sign of respect that my father didn't get, that my brother didn't get, that my mother didn't get."

    Actually, I honestly kinda wish somebody would buy the rights to The Littlest Hobo and reimagine it. But on the other hand, I know they'd just fuck it up.

    I'd also pay to see a Fall Guy movie.

    You're right skimn.

    by Strangwood

    I'm coming off as a little unhinhged now. I'll dial it back. The theatre I work at has just one digital projector, for 3D shows. Which arrive on hard drives in padded cases. Features arrive locked until we receive a key from the film companies. Other than that, it's 35mm film all the way. Technicolor deliveries Tues/Wed, then Deluxe on Thursday. So there's still an overweight projectionist hauling can after can up a flight of stairs. In this case, it's me.

    same for trailers.

    by Strangwood

    35mm trailers arrive with the feature in the cans. So the film version of the A-Team won't be with me until Thursday. Digital trailers arrive as a package on their own seperate hard drive on Monday. There were trailers for Date Night, From Paris With Love, The Back Up Plan and Tooth fairy along with The A-Team. But I was pretty sure nobody cared about those. At least, not as much as The A-Team.

    by Royston Lodge

    So, the trailers that arrive on hard drive - should we assume they use a file format that cannot be copied onto a thumb drive and posted on YouTube?

    Watching PT Anderson movies is like watching Paint Dry

    by Vindibudd

    IHateThePixelsGeorge PT Anderson has to go cap in hand for money because his movies have made, rounded up 76 million 25 million 48 million 43 million WORLDWIDE in their COMPLETE RUNS. "Tripe" like The A-Team (which will be funny and have action and a 8th grade literacy level story line) will make that total amount in two weeks max. You know why? PT Anderson makes movies more boring than watching paint dry, and yes, I sat through There Will Be Blood and Magnolia and Boogie Nights. I know movie snobs like to orgasm over Anderson's movies but the fact of the matter is that to the normal average person they are 1. Boring. 2 Long. 3. Incomprehensible. 4. Pointless. You're not the boss of me. Respect the cock. I drink your milkshake are all nice lines but the fact that you have to sit though 10 hours of sheer excruciating tedium does not make it worth it. If I was an executive, I wouldn't fund him either. Sorry. It's a business.
