UPDATED!! Dig This Poster For THE LOSERS!!

Merrick again... Talkbacker NivekJ provided THIS LINK which'll take you to a PDF of the first issue of THE LOSERS. Check it out!



Merrick here...
...with a look at the poster for THE LOSERS, directed by Sylvain White (I'LL ALWAYS KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and STOMP THE YARD). It stars Chris Evans, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, and Columbus Short and is based on comic property created by Andy Diggle and Jock for Vertigo (amassed HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE), it should hit theaters early April. THE LOSERS...
follows a Special Forces team betrayed by its handler and left for dead. The "losers" regroup in the interest of revenge, the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests.
...according to HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Here's the poster. No matter how the movie turns out, I think this is pretty damn cool...
THIS IS EMBIGGENABLE!

    Gasp! A poster without floating heads!

    by Bot-Bot

    Please oh please let this be a new trend. Bring back illustrators and artists to movie posters. Photomontage sucks these days, and the best posters have always been illustrated works not photography.

    In 1972,

    by illbedamned

    a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. They promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    I know it's Comic Con...

    by Linguo_IS_Dead

    but why do the studios think all these comic-drawn teaser posters for live-action films are cool? Seeing this "poster" makes me not want to see the film.

    by VXXXJesterXXXV

    I think that is Zoe from Star Trek. I could be wrong though.

  • July 24, 2009, 2:12 p.m. CST

    Either Zoe is fine then.

    by shutupfanboy

    If this is based on the DC Losers, please see New Frontier on how bad ass they are. If it is not then ignore this post.

    I'm pretty Sure

    by Sasson

    I'm pretty sure that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is just Javier Bardem acting without an accent and pretending he is someone else--maybe to hide money from creditors. It is kind of like hoe Phil Hartman did all of those movies, like Clear and Present danger and Desperado, and pretended he was a different person just by using a different accent. Phil did not fool me then and Javier is not fooling me now.

    I keep on thinking that that talentless ginger twat who used to pollute British TV and radio somehow spread to movies, like gangrene. But luckily it's a different Chris Evans.

    Could Never Get Into This Comic

    by Autodidact

    I love 100 Bullets and stuff like that, so it seemed like THe Losers would be an ideal comic for me to read. For some reason, this is one of the few comics that I can't read no matter how hard I try. I want to read it, I try to read it, but every time I read a few pages I have no idea what is supposed to be taking place. My reading style seems to clash with the storytelling style. It's odd though, because I have been reading comics for a long time and it's only the very rare comic that makes my head hurt the way The Losers does.

    The CIA as villain? How utterly Hollywood,

    by Odkin

    "conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests." Because we should instill as much mistrust as possible of anyone in the business of doing America's hard work in the world. I'm sure they'll also find a way to smear businessmen too using either an evil British or Texan CEO. Why does Hollywood still hate America? They got their Messiah, didn't they?

  • July 24, 2009, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Odkin

    by wookie1972

    The CIA does enough to instill mistrust on their own. Look up Iran in the 50s, Patrice LaMumba, the Contras - and that's just the stuff they admit to.

    Stringer Bell!

    anything with Stringer Bell in it is fine with me.

    When will someone cast Morgan and Robert Downey Jr as brothers?? They are spitting images of each other.

    by In_Rainbows

    we're excited about this drawing of the actors as the losers? Would've been better if it were live photo of them in that stance as the losers.

  • July 24, 2009, 4:16 p.m. CST

    Of course the poster looks cool...

    by Killah_Mate

    ...That's cause they modified a cover of the comic book. Still, I suppose it's meant to convey respect for the property, like that Gibbons piece for Watchmen. Still, even if the movie is good (and with the filmmakers' pedigree I'm not gonna hold my breath), it can't possibly be as fucking awesome as the comic book is. It's like a mini "A-Team: The Movie" every issue, and I mean that in the best way. Still, I've got nothing against them; I'd be happy to be proven wrong by an awesome Losers movie. The world could use one of those.

  • July 24, 2009, 4:18 p.m. CST

    Wow, really went to town with the 'stills' there.

    THE LOSERS was a great comic!

    by cymbalta4thedevil

    Towards the end of its run they actually killed off some of the major characters. If they follow the comics' storyline this should be a good action movie.

  • July 25, 2009, 3:52 a.m. CST

    Yep pretty much Elba means I'm gonna watch it, cept for that shi

    by Cameron1

    Fatal Attraction rip off he was in recently in. The Losers is a cool comic for what I've read of it but the 100 Bullets for HBO news kinda blows any other comic adaptation news out of the water at the moment.

  • July 25, 2009, 11:24 a.m. CST

    Does this mean...

    ...that everyone on internet comment threads and message boards will finally wise up to how "loser" is spelled with only ONE "o"? <BR><BR>Please, please let that be the case.

    wait so is the live or animated?

    Because someone above said it looks too similar in style to titan a.e.

    Say what?

    by The StarWolf

    Doesn't sound like THE LOSERS to me. At least not the ones from the comics.

  • July 26, 2009, 7:18 p.m. CST

    Seems the director is the problem.

    by #1 Zero

    I'm reading the trades of this comic now and it's decent. A basic premise that's been done but anymore, everything has been done at least once, its just how original you tell the same story again. My problem is the director. I thought that Peter Berg was directing this at one point and now we have the guy who did "Stomp the Yard". I've never seen Stomp the Yard or "Step up" but from what I remember they were number one at the box office after they were dumped in the month of Jan. Feb. or March when Absolutely nothing else was out at the time. It's sad when a dance movie that's just thrown out there in the winter makes it to number one by default somehow makes you a credible director who should be making huge action movies (which this should be). But I guess that's the "biz". See Channing Tatum who starred in Step Up (another default hit) and is now a leading man in a potentially huge franchise.
