The A-Team Premiere

This is why I love Hollywood. We don't normally cover the big premieres here in Hollywood, but I'm making an exception today because this is just badass. For the premiere of The A-Team tonight, Fox decided to roll a frickin' tank into the premiere, upon which actors Sharlto Copley and Bradley Cooper rode in, waving to fans from atop their rolling fortress. Talk about one hell of an awesome red carpet introduction, especially for a movie like The A-Team! Okay, sure it's all a publicity stunt, but come on that's pretty damn cool to see. Best of all, Sharlto Copley looks like he's having the absolute time of his life out there. Click on for photos!

I must give credit to HitFix, as they were the first ones to tip me off about this. Hope you dig all the photos!

You can watch the last theatrical trailer for The A-Team here and check out four character TV spots as well.

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 is bringing The A-Team to theaters everywhere on June 11th this summer. There is no Plan B!

Copley is loving it! The only thing I'm worried about is the flying tank scene...if it gonna be stupid or not.

That actually looks quite funny and I pretty jaded. The film looks pretty daft, but so was the original tv show, they were always being stuck in barns with welding equipment and rockets and speedboats and stuff.

#8 really? Calm down, the show wasn't serious, and the film won't take its self to seriously either.

#8 I'd actually contend that this is a pretty badass A-Team. Of course I find the adaptation unnecessary, I'm still there.

I've just seen the movie at a press screenings in france two days ago. To be honnest and summarize it in a best way the a-team is maybe the most enjoyable and badass blockbuster i've seen in a while. It's a silly blockbuster on some levels ( the actions sequences are extremly fun or goofy it depends of your pov) but the truth at the end of the film is pretty simple: that was one hell of a ride and a freakin good one. The true success of the film is the new casting. The two breakout are Bradley Cooper and Sharlto Copley. Cooper is becoming more and more a really incredible actor, he definitly steal the show as face, Sharlto Copley as murdock play in the same range. He's a looney but definitly the one you want to have on your side when everything goes wrong and that you need to exit in a plane. Liam Neeson and Rampage delivers very good performance too, but my favorite in the team are Cooper and Copley. I was like a lot of peoples worried that it would become a failure like starsky and hutch in term of "adaptation" but it's definitly not the case and it feels good. Joe Carnahan just made my day with this film! As you may understand i'm frenc, so don't shoot me for the mistakes in my writing.
