Warner Bros. publicity department is in high gear. On the heels of releasing new promo art for A Nightmare on Elm Street, Clash of the Titans, and Legend of the Guardians, the studio has now released the first teaser poster for The Losers.
It's a fairly faithful rendition of the cover of the DC Comics graphic novel by writer Andy Diggle and artists Jock and Shawn Martinbrough that inspired the movie, which seems to be a message to comic book fans that the movie will be true to the source material.
Directed by Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard), the Losers stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Óscar Jaenada, and Columbus Short as "The Losers," a group of former CIA black-ops operatives who seek revenge against their former handler (played by Jason Patric) after being betrayed and left for dead. If you're unfamiliar with The Losers graphic novel that is the basis for the movie, DC Comics has made the first issue available online as a downloadable PDF. But, be warned, the content of the graphic novel is for mature readers only.
