THE A TEAM: L-R: Face, Murdock, B.A & (front) Hannibal
‘(Ten years ago / In 1972), a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The A-Team.’
The A Team, Karate Kid, Ghostbusters and Gremlins… What have these all got in common? They are all classic 80s TV/ film franchises being remade or given sequels for a brand new audience. The trailer for the new Karate Kid film, out later this year, has already started circulating, as has the promo clip for the big screen version of The A Team. While Ghostbusters 3 and Gremlins 3 have both been confirmed as ‘in the works’, with the idea each will contain the 3D element re-popularised with the massive success of Avatar.
