Synopsis: A group of Iraq War veterans looks to clear their name with the U.S. military, who suspect the four men of committing a crime for which they were framed.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • When Hannibal fakes his death, the doctor's name on the body tag is Dr Schultz, a reference to Dwight Schultz who portrayed Murdock in the original series.
  • Bruce Willis was considered for the role of Hannibal Smith. Common, [?] Ice Cube and [?] The Game were all rumored for the role of BA Baracus. Woody Harrelson and Ryan Reynolds were considered for the role of Murdock. Amber Heard and Olga Kurylenko auditioned for the role of Lt. Sosa.
  • The movie that plays at the Frankfurt psychiatric hospital begins with the original [The A-Team] theme music, and its credits contain names that relates to the original Team's careers: - The first name credited is "Reginald Barclay." Dwight Schultz, who was the original Murdock, played a character named Reginald Barclay in [Star Trek: The Next Generation], [Star Trek: Voyager], Star Trek: First Contact and {Star Trek: Elite Force II}. - The next credit reads "Thomas Banacek." George Peppard, who was the original Hannibal, played detective Thomas Banacek in [Banacek]. - The third and final credit reads "G.F. Starbuck." Dirk Benedict, who was the original Face, played Lieutenant Starbuck in_ Battlestar Galactica.
  • Two of the original [The A-Team] members make cameo appearances in the movie: at Penascola, Face gets tips from fellow inmate Milt (played by Dirk Benedict, the original Face); and at Frankfurt, Murdock is analyzed by a German doctor (played by Dwight Schultz, the original Murdock). Mr. T was approached to make his own cameo but declined, saying that he was so devoted to B.A. that if he did not play him again, there was no point in making the cameo. George Peppard, who played the original Hannibal, could not make a cameo as he had died in 1994.
  • Hannibal Smith is famous for smoking cigars. Liam Neeson, who plays Hannibal, is an ex-smoker.
  • Baracus was a Sergeant in the series, and in this film he is a Corporal. Hannibal, Face and Murdock retain their original rank of Colonel, Lieutenant and Captain.

  • Sharlto Copley's mom banned him from watching the TV show, even though he watched it at friend's houses, due to its violent nature. He also apparently used to hide a tape recorder behind the TV in the TV room and record the show. He would listen to it when his parents thought he was asleep. The first thing he did when he got the role of Murdock was phone his mom and told her "that I was just getting her back for not letting me watch the series when I was a kid."
  • Bradley Cooper became so efficient in weapons training that he was able to reload his M4 rifle in less than 4 seconds. This was actually in the film but was left on the cutting room floor.
