Thursday, after a Chinese Theater screening that had its fair share of explosions, Fox had the after-blast at the Hollywood Roosevelt for “The A-Team” premiere.

In what might be a good trend for execs, co-topper Tom Rothman said he preferred to be quoted using writer-director Joe Carnahan’s line: “If you don’t like a tank flying out of a plane, then you just don’t like summer movies.”

For himself, Carnahan said, “You’re working with something that’s had 25 years in the zeitgeist, four years on the air, and you’ve got two hours to satisfy fans and create a new experience for the current audience.” He then added that “zeitgeist” is his new favorite word.
