"A" Team of Losers & Takers

This summer three action buddy movies will be on the big screen. One original, one TV and one comic adaptation. My money's on the original

The Takers
Plot A group of bank robbers find their $20 million plan interrupted by a hard-boiled detective.

The A-Team
The 80's TV show gets an update Plot A group of Iraq War veterans looks to clear their name with the U.S. military, who suspect the four men of committing a crime for which they were framed

The Losers
Adapted from the Virtigo comic book of the same name Plot: After being betrayed and left for dead, members of a CIA black ops team root out those who targeted them for assassination.

Why I picked The Takers because whereas A-Team and Losers appear to be targeted at males who want action. The Takers is eye-candy for the ladies, I first heard about it in November of last year and the woman who mentioned it can't wait for it's release. That kind of buzz is normally a good thing. She's not the only one.  I imagine there will be many "Takers". Interesting to note that Losers and Takers both star Zoe Saldana and Idris Elba
