With just two weeks to go before the premiere of director Sylvain White's The Losers, Warner Bros. is making a promotional push that better introduces moviegoers to the major players and plot. The three-fold push includes the release of a series of new stills, an official plot synopsis, and a sexy, action-packed extended video clip that's nearly three-and-a-half minutes long.
An explosive action tale of betrayal and revenge, The Losers centers around the members of an elite Special Forces unit sent to the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. But the team — Clay (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Jensen (Chris Evans), Roque (Idris Elba), Pooch (Columbus Short) and Cougar ( Óscar Jaenada) — soon find that they have become the target of a deadly double cross, instigated from the inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max (Jason Patric).
Making good use of the fact that they are now presumed dead, the group goes deep undercover in a dangerous plot to clear their names and even the score with Max. They are joined by the mysterious Aisha (Zoe Saldana), a beautiful operative with her own agenda, who is more than capable of scoring a few points of her own. Working together, when they're not arguing amongst themselves, they have to stay one step ahead of the globetrotting Max — a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war for his own benefit. If they can take down Max and save the world at the same time, it'll be a win-win for the team now known as The Losers.
The Losers is adapted from the DC Comics title of the same name by writer Andy Diggle and artists Jock and Shawn Martinbrough. James Vanderbilt and Peter Berg wrote the screenplay.
