The first official trailer for "The A-Team" has been released and it’s something you’re going to want to see if you're a fan of the series or have never seen an episode in your life.
The film, directed by Joe Carnahan ("Smokin' Aces") is a feature film adaptation of the 1983-87 television series that starred George Peppard, Mr. T, Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz as a crew of Vietnam vets convicted of crimes they didn't commit. They escape and become a crew of armed mercenaries known as "The A-Team."
In Carnahan's film, the Middle East will stand in for Vietnam and the story will be presented as an origins tale starring Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton 'Faceman' Peck, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as Sgt Bosco 'B.A.' Baracus, Sharlto Copley as Capt. 'Howling Mad' Murdock and Liam Neeson as Col John 'Hannibal' Smith. Jessica Biel and Patrick Wilson also star.
I will admit to never watched the show religously, but judging from what I have seen, the trailer keeps the classic music and feel of the television series but really pushes the action to the extreme.
If you are a big fan of the classic series, is this what you expect to see out of an "A-Team" film? Your thoughts on how close the characters are to the television series?
"The A-Team" hits theaters on June 11, 2010.
