The first official trailer for The Losers is now online. Even better, you’ll be happy to know, is that it looks like it could be a hell of a lot of fun.
This is a pleasant surprise and possible proof that resume don’t always make the talent. The movie is directed by Sylvain White, who has previously directed I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer and Stomp the Yard, which naturally lead us all to become worried about this project. We won’t know for sure until the movie comes out, but again, there’s lots of promising stuff going on here.
The Losers is an adaptation of a Vertigo comic book series of the same name by Andy Diggle and Jock that ran from 2003 to 2006. That comic book is also an adaptation in its own right, being based on a WWII-based comic also of the same name that debuted in the good ol’ 70s.
If you’ll be so kind as to proceed to the bottom of this post, you can watch the new trailer and judge for yourself!
