Second “A-Team” trailer explodes online

We’re inching ever closer to the summer blockbuster season, so studios slowly are letting their big-budget cats out of the bags.

This morning, 20th Century Fox posted a longer trailer for its remake of the television hit “The A-Team” to Apple’s official site. In the film, Liam Neeson leads a team of ex-military commandos (made up of Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copely and ultimate fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson) who escape from a military prison and offer their services to the highest bidders.


The longer clip reveals the team’s court martial trial; beefs up footage of the team’s jail break; introduces Patrick Wilson’s character, Lynch, who is tasked with stopping the A-Team; fleshes out the plot (a vengeance mission against the criminals who framed the A-Team); gives a better look at some of the action sequences; and concludes with not one but two helicopter tricks (the second played for a flat joke).

Perhaps the whole trailer can be summarized by a line barked by Jessica Biel’s character, Capt. Charisa Sosa. “They are the best, and they specialize in the ridiculous.”

Is it too late to make that the film’s tagline?

“The A-Team,” directed by Joe Carnahan, opens June 11.
