Jonah Hex Trailer Rides into Town, Dynamite Crossbow in Hand
After much anticipation, Warner Bros. has released the first full-length trailer for Jonah Hex this afternoon. Set to be released on June 18th, the film is based on the beloved John Albano/Tony DeZuniga comic of the same name.
Whatever your familiarity with the original, you will surely appreciate the universal appeal of Josh Brolin firing a stick of dynamite from a crossbow and mowing bad guys down with chainguns mounted on a horse, not to mention John Malkovich as an evil Civil War-man with great facial hair. The biggest drawback: Staring at the nasty scar on Brolin/Hex’s face could be tough for the duration of a whole movie. We had our doubts before, but the trailer dispelled some of them: Getting kind of a Wild Wild West vibe from this, which, whatever the haters say, is not an entirely bad thing.
