THE LOSERS News Roundup
THE LOSERS movie adaptation is scheduled for release in the USA on April 23rd, and in the UK on May 28th.
Jock and I will be signing copies and giving away free posters at the Bristol and Barcelona comic cons and the London MCM Expo in May.
Warner Bros have released this new ad poster for the movie, which has already been spotted in the wild in LA. You can see an earlier one-sheet poster here.
I've just done a short interview about the movie with The Times Online, and another with USC's Daily Trojan.
THE LOSERS has had its second successful test screening and is rapidly approaching picture lock as final edit and special effects are completed. Jock has drawn new artwork for incorporation into the film, and the main title sequence (designed by Prologue of SE7EN and IRON MAN fame) features his original art from the comic -- so no-one will be left in any doubt about the source material!
Meanwhile, Chris Evans, who plays Jensen, has reportedly been offered the part of CAPTAIN AMERICA by Marvel Studios. No word yet on whether he's accepted their reported 9-picture (!) deal. (UPDATE: He said yes!)
You can watch and/or download THE LOSERS trailer in from www.The-Losers.com, and download the first issue of the original comic for free from Vertigo.
