Those suckers over at Warner Bros are fast! The first trailer for the DC/Vertigo adaptation The Losers is now online. The film is directed by Sylvain White and features more than a handful of actors who’ve had their fair share of bad ass action roles. The trailer debuted over at MSN, but it’s available for your viewing pleasure here…
Entertainment Tonight had first dibs on debuting the trailer on their show, but it looks like Warner Bros had other plans. After watching it a few times I can tell you this, there are some similarities to The A-Team trailer. There’s action, humor, mild sexual innuendo, and a crazy guy with a Southern accent played pitch perfect by Chris Evans.
The Losers are a special black-ops team whose members originated from several different branches of the military. In their own units, each one of them at some point or another lost a soldier under their command, hence they dubbed themselves “The Losers.” Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays Sargent Clay, Idris Elba is Roque, Chris Evans is Jensen, Columbus Short is Pooch, Zoe Saldana is Aisha, and Oscar Jaenada is Cougar.
The Losers hits theaters on April 9th.
What do you think of the first trailer for The Losers? Do you think it’s a hit or miss?
