A few days ago, new trailers were released for both The A-Team and Salt, both of which we neglected to cover. In the case of The A-Team trailer, it’s likely because each attempt to watch it rendered us completely brain dead. The new trailer does offer a lot of new material, but in my mind, it only cements how completely dumbfucked it looks. With the exception of maybe Sharlito Copley, everyone in this movie is incredibly miscast, from Liam Neeson down to Patrick Wilson and especially Bradley Cooper. But then again, anyone that’s not the original cast feels a little miscast.
It’s clear that Joe Carnahan is going for broke on the over-the-top preposterous action comedy; any notion that he’d try to gritty this up is completely out the door.
Seriously: Bradley Cooper needs to step the fuck out of this movie.
The other new trailer is for Angelina Jolie’s Salt. The first one was a pretty good introduction to the film, and was intriguing enough to get my attention. But this one recycles all the good bits from the first trailer and adds some contextual stuff that …. oh crap, I fell asleep again. Either Angelina is steel-toeing someone with her boot, or I drift off. Needs more bad-assitude, less “all hell’s about to break loose.”
