Sylvain White's adaptation of the acclaimed graphic novel series The Losers opens nationwide in theaters today. The film stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Chris Evans, Columbus Short, and Jason Patric, and it's a spectacular, surprisingly effective combination of buddy-flick conventions, mission movie formulas, '80s action clichés and thoroughly modern set pieces. Cinematical caught up with the cast and crew of The Losers in the weeks leading up to its release, and compiled the seven of most important – or maybe just interesting - things to know about the making of the film as you go to see it.
