The first official trailer for The A-Team has been released and it’s something you’re going to want to see. A lower quality leaked version appeared online recently only to be taken down in most places at the studio’s request but we wanted to wait for the real thing before sharing.

The trailer keeps the classic music and feel of the television series as well as most of the key characters of the A-Team members but really pushes the action to the extreme. See for yourself and you’ll understand.

Alongside Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s “Less gold, more muscle” take on B.A. Baracus, a role originally made famous by Mr.T, The A-Team stars Liam Neeson as Col. John “Hannibal” Smith, Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck and last but not least, District 9’s Sharlto Copley as “Howling Mad” Murdock. Joining the male action heroes is also Jessica Biel as Faceman’s ex and an Army general.

Check out the trailer:

For me the characters look great but it’s hard to tell how closely they’ll resemble what we remember from the series. I think Liam Neeson looks and acts perfect and I already love his character. I’ve always been a fan of Bradley Cooper and I’m excited to see what antics Sharlto Copley will bring to the table.

The character that will bring the most love-hate from the fans however, is Quinton “Rampage” Jackson acting like “B.A.” Baracus. No one can re-enact what Mr.T brought to the character and for the filmmakers trying to make him more muscle and comedy and less mean and less gold, that doesn’t fly either because too many love and expect the classic Mr.T. It’s a catch 22 situation for Jackson.

Sadly, despite confirmed guest appearances by original A-Team actors Dwight Schultz & Dirk Benedict, Mr.T will not be having a cameo in The A-Team. Though the the A-Team‘s van is certainly a part of the movie!
