First Official High Res Look at Joe Carnahan's The A-Team
by Alex Billington

Man this photo is contrasty! A few weeks back we brought you the very first spy shot of the four members of The A-Team shooting in in Canada (and the first photo of the van roaming around as well). Now we have the actual first official photo from Fox for Joe Carnahan's The A-Team for your viewing pleasure. It was sent over to us by the SalonDelMal blog, but it's popping up everywhere, so I'm sure you find it anywhere. I've gotta say, from the looks of it, they really did choose a perfect cast for this. They all look badass and they're all pretty damn talented too (except Quinton Jackson?). Anyway, take a look at the big full photo below!
This Joe Carnahan (Smokin' Aces, Pride and Glory) directed and Michael Brandt / Derek Haas (Wanted) written adaptation of the 1980's TV show is about a group of ex-Army Special Forces who work as soldiers while being on the run from the military for a crime they didn't commit. Starring as the elite A-Team are: Sharlto Copley as Capt. "Howling Mad" Murdock, Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Liam Neeson as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as Sgt. Bosco "B.A." Baracus. 20th Century Fox has already set a June 11th, 2010 release date next year. Stay tuned for updates as they arrive!

What the hell? That's not a photo! It's a collage!

Not digging this idea. But love the casting.

Poster looks good for a modern interpretation. I hope Liam embraces some of George Peppard's personality traits for the role.

Hope the movie is better than the shotty photoshop work here.. eww..

if Rampage does not do B.A. Baracus justice i would be pissed i still think Terry Crews would be a good B.A. Baracus oh well good luck to Rampage. is it me but Sharlto Copley always have the same expression in everything

I guess if the movie is this far into development, I'll say I'm game:P Still, it's looking better than I was expecting, I just hope the story and acting is strong...

Horrible photoshop work! Look at the halo around the actors! Wow...they clearly don't spend much money on a decent graphics guy which you could get some great reg photographers to do it for free.

What's wrong with Mr. T? Murdock looks like a guy coming straight out of a trailer park. Face and Hannibal look just fine.

my god the perfect cast! Cooper, Copley, Neeson, and Jackson, 'nuff said. The only thing I'm actually concerned about is if the story is gonna be an over the top cheesy action flick, and Rapmage Jackson I wonder if he can act? #1 Cooper will be great.

#17 Lol. Agreed. Am I the only one getting a strong whiff of stinker off this one?

joe carnahan didn't direct pride and glory, gavin o' connor did. FAIL.
smarter than you on Oct 23, 2009
I will only watch this movie in the theater if it has the following 4 things: 1) a shit ton more chains around b.a.'s neck! (seriously?!? ONE DOG TAG!?!?) 2) AK47's shot from the hip with no aiming what so ever and only manage to hit some tires 3) the car (the one that just got its tires shot) will then hit a ramp and flip and we would be able to clearly see dummies in place of actors 4) a montage scene of the crew in a barn makin a BIG ASS TANK out of NOTHING!! Otherwise....NETFLIX FTW!! 😛

"smarter than you" is right Alex, Joe Carnahan did not direct Pride and Glory it was Gavin O'Connor

I like this poster. And B.A. is good like he is. It's great. I'm only wondering about the story ^^
Michael on Oct 24, 2009
Anthony Hopkins makes a great Hannibal, they never approached him? But Liam Neeson is certainly an interesting choice
greg on Oct 24, 2009
I think Liam Neeson will make a good Hanibal Smith, cannot say about the rest of the cast i did like Sharloto Copley in District 9. Cannot wait to see this Film The A team.
cineprog on Oct 24, 2009
Where's B.A.'s gold?
Erwin on Oct 24, 2009
Um. Looks like a bunch of dudes in Halloween A-Team costumes.

@22: Man, your #4 made me LOL. I think it'll be hilarious if they did it, though. Remember the scene toward the end of Scary Movie 2 where they parodied that? That's all I'll think about.
NadaNuff on Oct 26, 2009
I'm a sucker for the A-Team. I'm game. But I have to know, WHY IN THE HECK IS LIAM NEESON STILL PACKING A MINI-14? Holy FAIL!

"rampage" jackson is a great fighter in the UFC but i really hope he does an awful job in this film so that he doesn't leave the UFC to pursue a career in movies, much like the rock did with the WWE.
