The A-Team stops traffic in Hollywood

Jun 04, 2010 | 6:15am EDT

Bradley Cooper and Sharlto Copley wowed fans as they rolled up to the red carpet at Grauman's Chinese Theatre hanging out of a massive army tank, while Liam Neeson arrived in the iconic black van first made famous in the 1980s TV show on which the new film is based.

An A-Team helicopter also circled high above the crowds, which packed out Hollywood Boulevard.

After he made it to the red carpet, Cooper told reporters the tank wasn't his first choice of transportation to the venue, saying, "(It was) pretty insane. I said, 'Can't I go in the van?' They said no."

Neeson added, "Look, they closed down Hollywood Boulevard. This is one to tell the kids, the grandkids."

The big screen remake of The A-Team hits cinemas in the U.S. on 11 June (10), while fans in the U.K. will have to wait until 30 July (10) to see the vigilante gang in action.
