Finally, someone in Hollywood decided to make a movie about me and my friends in high school and appropriately titled it The Losers. *Friend whispers in my ear* What? Hold on a sec everyone – it’s not? Are you sure because the title says… *friend nods head*…OK my bad.
I have been corrected. The new trailer for the action film The Losers apparently is NOT about me and my friends but rather revolves around a group of betrayed CIA black ops and their fight for survival. The movie is based on the DC/Vertigo graphic novel of the same name by Andy Diggle. The Losers screenplay was written by Peter Berg (Hancock) and is directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard).
The Losers team is comprised of some of the best of the best military personal and stars Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen), Chris Evans (Push), Idris Elba (Thor), Jason Patric (Narc), Columbus Short (Armored) and Oscar Jaenada. The trailer for the film has been long overdue but today it’s available and you can watch it below.
This might be the first time I’ve watched a trailer that didn’t give away the entire film in two and a half minutes. The Losers looks like it has the right amount of humor, action and intrigue all blended into one. Plus, it has Zoe Saldana in her underwear – I’m just sayin’.
Seriously though, from what I’ve read about the graphic novel, it would appear that White has nailed the look and personality of each of the main characters and I’m looking forward to seeing if the rest of the film translates as well.
Between The Losers and Kick-Ass, April is shaping up to be a great month for comic book action films.
