The first trailers for two of this year's most exciting movies have hit the interwebs. Which movies? Why, Kick-Ass
and The A-Team
, of course!
First up, let's check out Liam Neeson as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as Sgt. B.A. "Bad Attitude" Baracus and Sharlto Copley as Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock in what might be the most ludicrously sweet-looking remake ever made:
Personally, while the sight of a tank firing at planes while it falls to earth usually makes me shake my head, this is the FREAKING A-TEAM AND THEY ARE IN A TANK SHOOTING AT PLANES WHILE IT FALLS TO THE EARTH. The epic win scale is truly tipping over here. I'm also very interested in seeing more of Sharlto Copley, after his stunning performance in District 9
, our favourite movie of 2009.
Up next is Matthew Vaughn's comic book adaptation Kick-Ass
, giving you a much greater look at the main cast: Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloe Grace Moretz and Nicolas Cage.
It looks so good that saying it kicks ass is an understatment. It looks so
good that this needs to be watched when it hits the screens in April. (Assuming, of course, that Avatar
isn't still playing by then.)
Because we're nice folks, we also have the red band trailer. Naturally, this features swearing and violence, so if you're under eighteen make sure your parents aren't around and that you have the headphones plugged in. Ready? Good.
And now here's an extra bonus - the trailer for the remake of The Karate Kid
. It's basically the same as before, only with an old guy saying yes to every role he's offered as Mr Han and Will Smith's kid as the titular Karate Kid. The best part of this trailer is an excellent throwback to the old movie right at the end.
