'Jonah Hex' trailer: Megan Fox and Josh Brolin in the action-horror-western of the summer

Summer of 2011 will mark an epic showdown between comic book powerhouses: Marvel icons Thor and Captain America will battle with DC icon Green Lantern for box office supremacy. This year, conversely, is a chance for some lesser-known properties to hit the screen. We’ve already seen Kick-Ass and The Losers, and August brings Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Personally, I’m most excited about Jonah Hex, an adaptation of a the gruesomely bizarro horror-western. A trailer for the movie just hit the internet; check it out after the jump.

I was never a huge fan of the comic book series, which is probably a good thing, since the movie seems to ignoring heavy swaths of the source material. From my memory, Hex put more emphasis on stark horror than on chain guns and boat explosions. (I also don’t seem to recall any comely frontier damsels.) But how can you argue with this cast? The titular role seems tailormade for Brolin, and John Malkovich looks to be enjoying himself as the villain. I thought Megan Fox was great in the underrated Jennifer’s Body, and this role seems to be playing to her vampish strengths. Also, was that Will Arnett as a Union soldier? This movie looks bananas, and I’m loving it.

What do you think, PopWatchers? Do you think Jonah Hex can pull off the weird genre mash of western, supernatural horror, and big-explosion action? Does Josh Brolin actually look more attractive with those burn scars? Can Will Arnett star in a remake of Glory? Sound off below!

      WEAK WEAK TRAILER! This movie is going to BOMB!

  • wierdalexj

    Ugh. Megan Fox cannot act!

    • m

      She can. You are just upset because you are ugly and she’s pretty.

      • phantom

        I figure this movie will show us whether or not she can actually act.

      • Jerry

        You know, you are allowed to think she’s hot AND is a bad actress. Nothing wrong with that.

  • charlotte

    Looks awesome! can’t wait! I actually like Megan Fox. I don’t think she’s as bad as people make her out to be.

    • Stacie

      Ah, me too! I just like her. I think she’s kin of funny.

  • Petra

    Aaah it’s Agent Broyles!

    • JC

    • JC

      any women who hate megan are jealous, fat/ugly and unsuccesful

        only a chauvinist would say that. women hate megan fox because if you actually read her interviews, instead of focusing on the pictures of her in underwear, all she does is bash females. she encourages the typical stereotype that all girls are bitches to each other, which is the exact stereotype that all intellectual actresses try to dissipate

      • Brian

        Actually, this is true of some (though obviously not all) women. The woman in the row behind me in Transformers 2 said “I hate her. Why’s she so beautiful?”
        I thought both the comment and the ridiculousness of that statement were pretty funny.

      • Me

        That might be true for some women but I’m pretty sure mostly everyone hates her because she is a terrible actress!!!

      • Mary

        It is “any woman” not “any women.” And I like plenty of women that men consider beautiful. Vivien Leigh kicks her ass in the beauty department, thank you very much. Megan Fox just seems extremely dumb and awful in her interviews. She also seems to get jobs solely on making men see her as a sex symbol. She is a shame to woman-kind.

      • Amanda

        I’m a woman and I like Megan Fox. She’s saucy.

      • Insane

        I’m a woman too and I find her HOT. ;) She’s common crush for me and my boyfriend

      • Insane

        I’m a woman too and I find her HOT. ;) She’s a common crush for me and my boyfriend

    • brianna

      I’m a girl and im going to see this movie just because shes in it. Shes hot and funny and i would watch anything with her in it. :)

  • Jobless

    Looks like fun. I didn’t see anything particularly wrong with Megan Fox in anything they showed from the trailer.

  • georgialei

    Any idea when Solomon Kane is going to be shown in the US?

  • Madd

    I really, really hope that’s Will Arnett!

    • the dude

      it is

  • Chele Belle

    Only planning to see this one because of Michael Fassbender.

    • Daisy Steiner

      100% This. Why is he not a bigger star?

  • Manx

    The hell? This movie looks stupid and pointless. Also someone hire Ms.Fox a dialect coach because real Southern Women don’t sound like that at all.

  • Brian

    This really does look terrible. Worse than Wild, Wild West, because at least Smith, Kline, and Branaugh could act and had screen presence (even though Branaugh was overacting badly).

    • Brett

      Well, Kline and Branagh, anyway.

  • Syd

    “This movie looks bananas, and I’m loving it.”
    My thoughts exactly!

  • GeeMoney

    I’m female, and I like Megan Fox… and she isn’t the reason why I will end up staying away from this film… it just looks bad! I have a feeling that this film is going to be overlooked this summer…

    • GeeMoney

      Besides, who the hell is going to look at the ugly right side of Josh Brolin’s face in this film? That’s enough to keep me away.

      • Brian

        On that note…would anyone here, upon seeing a guy who had such extensive scarring and who’s obviously still kicking/living comfortably, say “He don’t look so tough?”
        That scar’s a pretty good indicator of his toughness to me…
        But still, this looks bad. When you start having “whoosh” sound effects to hat-flipping, you’re in trouble.

  • Adam

    Hmmmmm it looked a little Wild Wild West… and squeaky clean

  • Nathan

    Looks pretty darn good, I’ll be there.

    • Niix Starkyller

      Looks pretty darn silly. I’ll be there, too.
