Update - Thanks to Tom Soliva for posting this one on our Facebook page.  Pure imagination from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is played throughout the trailer.  Great spot.  I totally missed it.

More Updates -  The following four photos were posted on our Facebook page by the eagle eyed Mark Tetreault.

If you pause it just right you see that the "this guy doesn't look friendly" guy has Aech on his nametag! I'm wondering if these shots are showing Aech doing the arena combat that's mentioned in the book.

In the shot with all the vehicles, look to the right. You'll see the A-Team van and what appears to be Christine next to it.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset.
