The graphic novel The Losers has transmovieafied its way to the big screen and today we have the trailer. It’s the standard elite team of emissaries are betrayed by Jason Patric plot. But it looks like it could be fun. It borrows a good deal of its charm from The Italian Job and the Ocean’s films and rests that on the shoulders of a cast comprised of rising stars. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, and a nerdy Chris Evans (and his mind bullets) have a great rapport.
This looks like it will either be a modest hit or a fun but forgettable mid-season film. Not all of the jokes hit in this trailer. For instance, after Elba successfully blows up a SUV with a homemade rocket launcher, he exclaims, "I’m the black MacGuyver! BlaGuyver!!" We’ll never see a black MacGuyver in our lifetimes. MacGuyver’s love of ice hockey makes that an impossibility. (MSN)
