'Losers' Release Date Goes Back to April

Following Warner Bros. Pictures' announcement that "The Losers" would transition from its original April 9 release date to a later June opening, the studio has now shifted the film back to an April 23 premiere.

The move was reportedly intended to keep "The Losers" from closely competing with the action-oriented "Clash of the Titans," which would be playing its second weekend in theaters. Additionally, the June move was intended to provide the studio with ample time to make corrections based on audience feedback from test screenings.

Apparently those changes won't take as long to make as initially expected, meaning Warner Bros. is returning "The Losers" to April, even if the new date is still a few weeks later than first planned.

This helps move the film away from a near head-to-head confrontation with "The A-Team," another action-packed film with similarities about a covert team of professionals who are betrayed and then exact revenge with lots guns and bullets.

"The Losers" is filled with gun fire, explosions and attitudes of stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans. The film seems fairly incomparable to the decidedly more mythological fare of "Clash of the Titans," which means many action film fans should have enough time to transition from one film to the next.

"Clash of the Titans" opens April 2 and "The Losers" now opens "April 23."
