The Losers will blast their way into theaters this spring and Warner Bros has just released six character banners featuring each of the film’s main characters. We’re talking Jeffery Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Columbus Short, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, and Oscar Jaenada. The film is directed by Sylvain White and is scheduled to hit theaters on April 23, 2010.
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.” Morgan plays Sargent Clay, Elba is Roque, Evans is Jensen, Short is Pooch, Saldana is Aisha, and Oscar Jaenada is Cougar.
Is it just me or do these banners look like they were taken straight from the comic? This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, Saldana looks like she’s kicking ass and taking names. The direct comic book approach seems to be the trend with adaptations this year like with Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World where the trailer actually features words like “Kapow” flashing across the screen. I’m sure The Losers will take itself a little more serious but it could still work.
