The A-Team Extended Movie Trailer

image After a less than rapturous response to the original movie trailer, Twentieth Century Fox and the producers of The A-Team movie have released a new extended trailer that seems to be generating a lot more positivity amongst movie watchers.

The big-screen action adventure is based on the hugely popular and successful 80’s television series, and follows the plot line that tells of the four members of the team who are set up to take the fall for a crime that did not commit for which they get sentences to 10 years imprisonment in a maximum security military jail. The movie follows their escape and their efforts to prove their innocence whilst on the run.

The movies’ South African interest is in Sharlto Copley, who secured the part of Howling Mad Murdock after his portrayal of Wikus “Fookin Prawns” van de Merwe in last years’ sci-fi hit “District 9”.

The A-Team are:

  • Liam Neeson who portrays Col. Hannibal Smith, a master planner of inventive missions requiring split-second timing, unusual skills and a team of incredibly proficient and eccentric soldiers;
  • Bradley Cooper, who shot to stardom in the smash comedy “The Hangover,” is Templeton “Face” Peck, who can procure anything for the Team’s unorthodox and daring activities;
  • Quinton “Rampage Jackson, a professional mixed martial artist and a top rated UFC light heavyweight, is B.A. Baracas, the Team’s driver and muscle; and
  • Sharlto Copley, who stared in the hit “District 9,” is H.M “Howling Mad” Murdock, a gifted pilot — and certified loon.

The movie also features the talents of:

  • Jessica Biel, who stars as Capt. Charisa Sosa, a former love interest of Face’s, but who’s now relentlessly pursuing the Team for a crime not of their doing; and
  • Patrick Wilson as Lynch, a mysterious CIA operative who is a key player in the Team’s most explosive mission.

Directed by Joe Carnthan (“Narc,” “Smokin’ Aces”) from a screenplay by Skip Woods The A-Team is due for global release on 11 June.
