The A-Team

(2010)

Carnahan and the Scott brothers say they will use the original premise of the series as the template for an action film. In the original, four Vietnam vets convicted of armed robbery escape from military prison and became do-gooder mercenaries..

‘The A-Team’ Sequel Won't Happen Says Bradley Cooper

The A-Team took in $177.1 million worldwide from a $110 million production budget, which does not include marketing costs. The profit margin is, apparently, just not high enough to allow for a sequel to be made. A direct-to-video sequel with an all-new cast? Maybe.

The A-Team was released June 11th, 2010.

EXCLUSIVE: Sharlto Copley Talks Murdock in ‘The A-Team’

Director Joe Carnahan brings home his hard-hitting action romp The A-Team on Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, December 14th. An adaptation of the hit NBC series, the story follows four wrongfully accused Iraqi War Vets who bust out of a Military prison to become do-gooder mercenaries. District 9's Sharlto Copley takes on the task of reinterpreting Murdock for a whole new generation, and becomes a bright spot in this otherwise grim, gritty homage to the original show's aesthetic.

In the film, the team meets your character, Murdock, while he is in a mental institution. In the series, he only ends up in the mental institution after the supposed "crime" that the team is accused of committing. It is alluded to on the series that he is only "pretending" to be crazy as to not serve time for his crimes. Can you talk about that major change in the character? Was that helpful for you in creating this version of Murdock? And do you believe that your Murdock really is crazy? Or is he just pretending, like he was on the series?

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘The Karate Kid’ Sweeps the Legs of Its Competition with $56 Million

The summer movie season continued to heat up this week with the release of two long awaited remakes of two classic '80s properties, The A-Team and The Karate Kid, finally hitting the charts. While early predictions had The A-Team earning at least $10 million more than The Karate Kid and coming in first for the weekend, the remake of the classic Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita underdog story kicked the adaptation of the beloved Mr. T series in the butt to clearly win "'80s flashback weekend" hands down with $56 million at the box office.

The film, which moves the action from California to China and stars Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, was produced by Smith's superstar parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and is of course, a remake of the classic '80s film The Karate Kid. The film took the top spot on the charts by earning about $15,288 on each of its 3,663 screens for a very impressive opening weekend total of around $56 million, which is much more than the $35.4 million that the film had been predicted to make. That should make Sony executives (and Will Smith's family) extremely happy considering that the film surpassed it's purported $40 million production cost in its first weekend on the charts.

I'm sweating so much, you might think me a basement dwelling tweeb who just asked his first girl out on a date (not true!)

Are our movies still sucking? Let me check...

It's the sixth big summer release weekend of 2010, and we've yet heard nary a critic bestow any of our previously released blockbuster outings with that coveted cliché: "It's the thrill ride of the summer!"
