Jessica Biel brought The A-Team into the 21st century by bringing girl power to the gang, the cast agreed at the film's London premiere.
The Easy Virtue star, who is dating singer and actor Justin Timberlake, dazzled on the red carpet in a long, flowing, crimson gown as she signed autographs for fans at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square.
Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who play Hannibal, Face, Murdock and B A Baracus in Joe Carnahan's big screen remake of the cult TV show, arrived in an A-Team van to the sound of the well known theme tune.
Jessica plays soldier Charisa Sosa in the film, who is part of the team, and revealed she thought it was "very important" for a woman to be a member.
She said: "The world is different now. Women can do anything and be anything and are as smart as anybody else. So I think if you're going to do something different and make this a contemporary story that is just necessary."
She added that the movie would appeal to both sexes.
Jessica said: "Girls like seeing stuff getting blown up too, I know I do. There's a female element that will draw in the women as well. I hope I created a female character other women can be proud of."
