The new trailer is, according to ‘HazMatt,’ 1:41 long and has the voice-over with the original music that any avid A-Team fan will probably know off the top of their head! Check out the first couple of paragraphs below and then head over to AICN for the full run-down. We’ll obviously keep our eyes peeled to bring you the trailer as soon as it’s released.
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”.
The A-Team is released 30th July this year(that’s my birthday and I cannot wait!).
