The JONAH HEX Trailer Is Now Online...

Merrick here...
Don't kill the messenger...

HD, etc. available over at Yahoo (HERE). I don't know enough about the source material to judge whether or not this trailer suggests a faithful adaptation of the comics (HERE ), but I can say that...to me, at least...this feels an awful lot like one of those SyFy Saturday Night Movies. Maybe that's what it's supposed to feel like/look like? You tell me...

    I Really Want To See the Horse-Mounted Gatlin Guns

    by kevinwillis.net

    This movie sounds like a blast. The trailer really makes me want to see this. Like Wild Wild West, only without Will Smith, which about ruined WWW.

  • April 29, 2010, 12:44 p.m. CST

    Looks

    This Movie Will Be Awesome

    by kevinwillis.net

    Because it just oozes awesomeness. Horse+twin Gatlin Guns. Big pistols with totally unnecessary cross-bow action. Megan Fox in a corset. What's wrong with you people?

  • April 29, 2010, 12:46 p.m. CST

    John Malkovich looks ridiculous...

    by Thrillhouse77

    Megan Fox sounds terrible...Lt. Daniels is in this...and GOB is in this... <p> Not a single thing about this movie adds up, except for Josh Brolin being cast as Jonah Hex.

  • April 29, 2010, 12:47 p.m. CST

    I Was Really Uninterested In This Movie . . .

    by kevinwillis.net

    Before the bad reviews and the trailer. Now I can't wait to see it.<br><br>Full Disclosure: My Favorite Movie of All Time is Flash Gordon (the 1980 one). So, you can see where I'm coming from.

    Southern Fired Shit

    by Darkartist

    That looks fucking terrible. The trailer couldn't even hold my attention and I've longed for a supernatural western movie since I was a kid watching Bonanza reruns. But this just reminded me of the movie parodies from the Ben Stiller Show.

  • April 29, 2010, 12:49 p.m. CST

    John Malkovich Looks Awesome

    by kevinwillis.net

    He phones in his performance because it's what artistic integrity demanded for the potentially perfect piece of cinematic genius. Megan Fox as a Wild West wench, when they were all pretty much disfigured and gnarly? Perfect. Jonah talks to dead people? Huh? What? Perfection!

    So, it could have been worse....

    by Gungan Slayer

    The Jonah Hex comics are fucking awesome, and I fear already that this movie is shitting all over them. That being said, it looks like it could still be fun, in a bad/cheesy sorta way....and come on...JOHN MALKOVICH looks hilarious...and he plays the badguy...reason enough to see this. and Brolin as Hex too. and Megan Fox too....just when she isn't talking...

  • April 29, 2010, 12:54 p.m. CST

    Lederuvdapac: Will Smith

    by kevinwillis.net

    Ruined Wild Wild West for me. Which was quite something. How you can ruin a western with half of Kenneth Brannagh in a wheelchair and giant mechanical spider, and Kevin Cline, and magnetized collars that attract spinning saw blades that cut off your head . . . and the train-lifter gadget . . . man, that was a great movie. Except for Gettin' Jiggy With It.

    Face-painting booths@carnivals do better makeup

    by Darkartist

    The makeup for Jonah Hex should've been the one area in the film that was impossible to botch. It's relatively simple. He's a burn victim, he's not fucking Quato from TOTAL RECALL. How do you fuck that up? Someone should've wiped that roast beef off his face and tried again because he looks like Alfred E. Newman

  • April 29, 2010, 12:58 p.m. CST

    Can't wait....

    by rljensen3

  • April 29, 2010, 1:06 p.m. CST

    This movie looks great...if you've never seen a movie b4

    by Darkartist

    If you were born 30 minutes ago and somehow developed the ability to talk and reason and decipher images and sounds and work a computer and the only moving images you've EVER seen is the JONAH HEX trailer, than maybe it'd be easier to understand how someone could think it looked "great". To each his own, I guess. There is no accounting for good taste. If you think it looks good, c'est la vie, I just think that anyone who feels that way probably wants to either juggle Josh Brolin's junk or they have to leave the house wearing a helmet at all times

  • April 29, 2010, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Uh oh...

    by WarrenSmooth

    Megan Fox is perfectly cast

    by ShabbyBlue

    Her character is a prostitute. So when the casting director is casting a whore, Megan Fox's name is ALWAYS the first that comes to mind.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Someone take the footage at 2:08....

    by BumLove

    ...of Megan Fox rocking backwards in sex position, and loop it continuously for about 5 minutes...and post that shit on YouTube. One of you enterprising Youtube afficianados. I'll favorite that shit.

    All I can think of...

    by Prof. Brainiac

    after watching this trailer is Mr. Plinkett from Red Letter Media screaming, "What's wrong with your faaaaace?"

  • April 29, 2010, 1:10 p.m. CST

    I don't know anything about this movie or comic book

    by BumLove

    But something about that trailer reminds me of the Dark Tower series...so I'm a bit intrigued. If the reviews from legitimate critics are sound...I'll fork over 10 bucks for a ticket...maybe.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:11 p.m. CST

    It's Amazing...

    by THE TRUE PINBACK

    ...that so many of these talkbackers call this the worst movie ever before they have even had a chance to see it. If you hate the trailer, then say so...but don't comdemn the film before you have seen it. Try saying something like..."this looks like it COULD be really bad." then if it comes out and is somehow GOOD, then you can at least save face.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:11 p.m. CST

    iownyou, no it won't

    by MattmanReturns

    It's mediocre. It's not even entertainingly bad. It's just a decently cut trailer. And the best scene in the movie is in the trailer (the part where he blows the guy through the window).

  • April 29, 2010, 1:13 p.m. CST

    Doesn't look so bad

    by Jollymorphic

    actually.

    by tile_mcgillus

    And this is their terribly deformed baby.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:14 p.m. CST

    Surprisingly, I don't got a bad feeling about this.

    by HapaPapa72

    I might wait the few weeks for it to reach Blockbuster shelves, but I like Brolin. Slightly better looking than a SyFy flick, I think. But of course, it's by NO means up there with the Mensa of superhero films(zealots, this is for you), The Dark Knight! Hail Nolan and Heath Be Praised.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:15 p.m. CST

    by MattmanReturns

    Poor choice of words. If he did, then it WOULD become a cult film.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:15 p.m. CST

    At least Wild Wild West

    by HapaPapa72

    Had Salma Hayek's ass. Well, some of it. But at least Jonah Hex doesn't have Will Smith.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:16 p.m. CST

    I also liked Horton Hears a Who

    by JackSlater4

    If you guys saw this same trailer only Brad Bird was director, you'd all be shooting yourselves in the eye with jizz right now.

    Jonah Hex > Airbender

    by kevinwillis.net

    I have it on good authority that there are no twin horse-mounted Gatling guns in the Last Airbender. Plus, M. Night's movies have gotten progressively worse. Lady in the Water was near unwatchable. Signs was watchable but was still incoherent (nothing about the aliens made any sense). The Happening was Teh Suck. <br><br> Jonah Hex has horse-mounted Gatling guns, inexplicable abilities to talk to dead people, John Malkovich, Megan Fox in an ultra-tight corset.

  • April 29, 2010, 1:25 p.m. CST

    by jbs9200

    When did Hex have supernatural powers? Because he didn't in the 80s.<p> They had a perfect chance to make a Eastwood-style Western franchise. Instead they remade Will Smith's Wild Wild West.<p> Hell, They even ripped off an Eastwood line (IIRC)<p> and BTW, Jonah's face was made that way by Indians.

    Strap a canon on a bison's back for the sequel

    by Darkartist

    Am I the only one getting an odd Flintstones-y vibe from that Gatling Gun Horse? Wouldn't be surprised if that stallion says, "Dis stinks but its a living," right after Jonah cuts those extras down. Hopefully that won't be the end of the animal artillary. I wanna see him pick up a flamingo and use it's neck like a bow & arrow. Tie some TNT onto a gang of prairie dogs and unleash them in a saloon

    by Stegman84

    But it sure as shit wasn't Jonah Hex. Hell, Constantine was closer to its source material than this is. I was hoping against hope that this might turn out to be a cool little sleeper, but no, it's just another pg-13 clusterfuck of noise and (bloodyless) fury. Damn shame too. <p>It might still be retardedly entertaining I guess, but that's about the best we can hope for by the look of things, and good chance we'll just get the retarded, and not the entertaining judging by that trailer. <p>Waited over 30 years for a Jonah Hex movie (Eastwood was even circling the project at one point in the mid 70's...ah, if only.), only to be given generic 'in name only' hollywood pap like this. Oh well, at least the comic is still around...

    Good god the travesty

    by Grendel745

    Jonah Hex, the character and the comic couldn't be any easier to adapt to film. Its a western, plain and simple. Bad ass bounty hunter with a scarred face. Even when Lansdale wrote the supernatural/western miniseries Two-Gun Mojo and its sequels, Jonah never had powers. Just a guy with a gun (and sometimes a knife). Aside from the makeup, Brolin looks great as Hex but my god the rest of it couldn't be further from the source material if the actual movie turned out to have Spider-man in it. Thankfully there's a 7 episode motion comic adapting 3 real Hex stories as well as an animated short with the next DC Animated DVD to wash the taste of this out of my mouth.

  • April 29, 2010, 2:02 p.m. CST

    SyFy channel movie. Wild Wild West. Megan Fox can't act. Source material. Can we add any more recycled comments, or does anyone out there actually have their own opinion?

    hope he doesn't apologize for being a confederate. Jonah Hex is a son of the south. Regardless of one's anti-slavery opinions, no true southerner would fight for the north. They hated yankees much, much, much worse.

    Giving away origins too early

    by deelzbub

    It was years after reading about Jonah Hex before I found out what caused his scar. That added to the mystery. And in the movie, it sounds like they shoot that load right at the start. <P> Premature origination!<P> Same thing w/ Wolverine! It took us 30 years of reading the adventures of before we get the full scoop. The movie spells it out immediately and takes every bit of tension of out of the characters.

    I added to the conversation by saying this conversation is stale. And that you're a full fledged douche, don't let anyone ever tell you differently. I'm glad you think you know me, based on my 1 comment. I can get a full understanding of your doucheness, by reading the 6 (six!) posts you've made. 6 posts. Quite a lot to post for someone so completely opposed to this movie. Don't you have anything better to do with your time? The basis for my argument comes from the fact that talkbackers have been looking for any reason to rip this movie to shreds, because their leaders (merrick, harry, peter, merrick's hairy peter) all feel the need to rip it apart. So now everyone feels obliged to rip apart the poster, the trailer, the acting, the look, the everything. They were ready to bash this movie months ago. I'm not saying the movie doesn't deserve it, but it doesn't deserve the hate either. The big difference between you and the other talkbackers, is that you actually seem to have your own opinion. Everyone is recycling what someone else said. I don't see why you're so offended by that, my post was never targeted at you anyways.

    by Yourbigpalal83

    Ok...whats the thinking here Josh? You could have played an uber cool Terminator in Terminator Salvation (which i liked btw..no where near as good as 1 and 2, but better then part 3 in my book) but no, u gave up a good part, made sam worthington a star in the process, to play a pissed off southern rebel seeking revenge wild wild west style? What was the thinking there? Dont get me wrong, terminator salvation had its flaws, but to turn down the chance to play a friggen terminator, only to play a pissed off redneck? wtf man?

    by WINONA_RYDERS_PUSSY_JUICE

    because he's the star in this movie. The subject matter made this project a huge risk, he must have known it could turn out like Wild Wild West and put a huge blemish on his resume, but it could have turned out pretty cool. Too bad the gamble didn't pay off. He woulda been better off taking the co-starring role in T4, even though that movie was a failure as well.

The only way Airbender won't bomb if it gets great word of mouth to get a large amount of non-kids to want to see it. I personally don't see that happening, because of the limited appeal of the source material and Night's sinking reputation.

    Jonahs Hexed

    by Victor_Kros

    I've seen this movie already, don't believe me google the test screening in Los Angeles at the Bridge last Sunday. With that being said. Here's highlights. Megan Fox (Leila) doesn't show the goods- unfortunate for clearly playing a prostitute. Very family friendly. She gets one decent action scene shooting some guns which you've already scene in the trailer that is over before it really goes anywhere. In fact most of the action in this movie is over before it gets started. This probably means they pissed away their production budget on the visual effects rather than decent and practical fight cheorography. It's very clear this movie feels like it was made on a made for television shoe-string budget. While John Malkovich (Turnbull) is an excellent actor, he's put on a few extra pounds for his role and sadly he is a very weakly written villain with no depth. Definately doesn't feel like a worthy advisary to Jonah, in fact his henchman Michael Fassbender (Burke) is more effective at giving Jonah a real life threatening fight. Probably the best fight in the movie. Josh Brolin makes a great Jonah Hex, he pulls off the traits needed to be Jonah including gritting his teeth when he talks and the Clint Eastwood "eye squint". Man of a few words and swift action. He is the only part of this flick worth watching. Everyone else is utterly useless, created only to progress the lackluster and confusing plot. The supernatural elements are here but they don't go anywhere substantial. This movie literally has Jonah in it and doesn't know what the hell to do with his "special abilities" so they just toss out ideas and fish for something they think works. The bird coming out of his mouth has no reason or explaination whatsoever. The opening sequence is killer. Since the damn trailer has already spoiled it, the gatling guns are great but they're used once and briefly done. Such a shame along with his other unique weaponry. I enjoyed the way they handled Jonah "talking to the dead" by temporaryly reanimating corpses through physical contact. (also spoiled in the trailer) All in all it looks and feels very Wild, Wild, West without going too far over the top with the comedic elements - it tries and fails by the third act to be more believable. Once you learn about the knock off dragonballs, it's downhill from there folks. Jonah Hex is very much the look and style of a good western at first but lacks the depth and character driven action sequences to hold up to say The Quick and The Dead (1995). Trust me, it was a superior movie. Wait for the dvd and go see something better. Don't literally buy the hype of the "sizzle" trailer which gives away the only bits of this film worth paying to see in the theater leaving you nothing to be surprised about. It's another cheap way for Warner Bros to attempt to cash in on DC's weaker roster of anti-heroes. This is no Batman Begins or The Dark Knight, hell it's not even Superman Returns it's actually worse if you can imagine that. Oh and once again Megan Fox DOES NOT show the goods, she doesn't have "on screen" sex. If you're going for Fox's goodies, you're going to be severely disappointed more so than Jennifer's Body which showed more skin. She might be hot when all her horrendous tats are covered up but she's still as lifeless as her cardboard standees. Jonah's hexed, don't fall under the spell of a typical bullshit spun action trailer trying to hold it together.

    trailers are cut so badly

    by blackshuck

    first off who can say if this is faithful, since they f'ed with Jonah Hex so many times in the comics (put him in the future, made him supernatural)..with the classic Tony Dezuniga Joh Albano Hex was a confederate soldier/bounty hunter who got his face scarred by an red hot apache tomahawk...and this trailer (all/most trailers) is so badly edited and why see the fucking movie now since you know she stabs the pimp and they end up battling a giant spider on a clockwork submarine? Paul Thomas Anderson (the boogie nights dir) suggested some time ago how trailers are an art unto themselves, that there should be footage used only in the trailer in some cases, and that the director of the movie might want a hand in editing it...yeah I'm going to see it.

    Glad to see Lance Reddick getting movie work

    by keynote2k

    He was great on The Wire, and solid on Lost; he's more or less wasted on Fringe.

    It doesn't make sense for a (presumably) free Black man to play "Q" to a rebel soldier who insists on wearing the uniform of the army that fought for chattel slavery.

    John Malkovich is a good actor but...

    by raidahguy

    he cant do any accents if he life depended on it. Its as if he doesnt try. I hate movies where accents are imperative, but actors cant do them! Ex. Valkyrie, The Man In the Iron Mask (where malkovich failed at miserably!!!

    Malkovich is the only thing wrong with this movie, if it wasn't for him we would be dealing with the godfather part II of comic book western adaptations

    Should have hired Liam to play Ras Al Ghul

    Just redo the awesome Batman: TAS episode, probably one of the best episodes of the entire run. I think it will be a good mantinee film. I wonder if they will easter egg any DC stuff or just keep it seperate.

    Scarred by a tomahawk

    by Jesson

    Monkey_king is correct; Hex got his scars from an indian (apache I believe) tomahawk. I'm soooo fucking dissapointed - been waiting ages for a faithfull adaption of this bad-ass character. And what's up with the soul-crossing-over-talking-to-dead-people-crap?!? I wanna bone Megan Foxx as much as the rest of the planets male population, but this movie leaves me completely cold !!!

    why is there a piece of skin over his mouth?

    by Bathman

    I mean i could see if there was a hole in his cheek then there should be a pice of flesh hanging down, but that piece makes no sense where it's placed, i guess were supposed to belive that his skin melted down and then fused to his lower lip, but can that even happen?<P>I've always seen Hex as a fourth tier comic book in the DC universe, somebody must have bought the rights years ago because i can't see WB and DC's new strategy including Jonah Hexx as their big 2010 movie. Still, it would be cool if Brolin as Hex shows up in the 2014 justice league movie especially if Chirs nolan is involved, Hexx would fit into the batman universe no problem

    It almost looks good

    by Animation

    His face isnt quite ruined enough. I'm supposed to be able to see more teeth/jaw/skeleton under there, if I'm remembering correctly. I think the main thing wrong with the movie may be the tone, and I think half of what feels wrong with the tone is the hard rock sound track. Ditch the music and replace it with something more melancholy and understated. I always got a vibe similar to the Hellboy comics (some action, some magic, some mystery, some introspection). It seems they've ditched the somber introspection aspect. But maybe my memory of Jonah Hex is a bit off due to time ... I haven't read it in .... woof. Ages.

  • April 30, 2010, 8:45 a.m. CST

    Why?

    by Sal_Tessio

    I know this isn't the 1950s, when every other movie was a western, but well-done regular westerns WILL work in Hollywood. 3:10 to Yuma springs to mind. Why did (someone, probably the producers) demand Jonah have "powers"? I understand changing his origin, as it doesn't lend itself to a good vengeance storyline. The back story between Turnbull and Hex in the comics is complicated, and wouldn't easily fit into the first act of the film. So they changed his origin to fit the story... fine. I don't like it, but I understand. The supernatural crap is silly and unforgiven-able. Do you think the Coens are going to make Rooster Cogburn a sparkly vampire?

    Sal Tessio - a digression

    by The StarWolf

    3:10 a good western? After the second time the bad guy nearly escaped and killed a couple of people doing it, I spent much of the rest of the film going "Shoot him! Shoot Him!!! What the *&$^%# are you idiots WAITING for? SHOOT HIM already!" Yeah, I know, the lead needed the bounty and it would have been a shorter, if more intelligent film. I don't care. They should have shot him and been done with.

  • May 1, 2010, 12:36 a.m. CST

    Yeah, John Malkovich is easily the worst-looking part of this mo

    by memento108

    He always seems like he's just reading lines off of a script. Sounds the same in every movie, no real difference from one performance to the next. Never been a fan of his because of that. That said, i've seen worse than this trailer.

    The StarWolf, 3:10 to Yuma

    by MattmanReturns

    While the "shoot him!" solution is reasonable and perhaps more realistic, it doesn't make for very good filmmaking. The money motive provides enough suspension of disbelief that they'd keep Crowe's character alive. Bale's character is too determined to just "shoot him!". But what makes the film a great western isn't the plot; it's the subtle build of the mutual respect between Crowe and Bale. And I love that ending. It gets me every time.

    The face makeup / hanging skin is just DUMB

    by Big Dumb Ape

    The hanging piece of skin from upper to lower lips is the kind of visual cue/character design element that looked "cool" or fucked up when the character was first introduced in comics. But as others have noted, the whole POINT of Jonah Hex having a fucked up face was because...well, it was a FUCKED UP FACE.<p>But instead of going the more literal route, once again we're treated to the classic Hollywood case of someone saying "Well, we don't want to mess up the looks of our leading man TOO much." The result: they give him some burned skin and the hanging piece of melted skin, which begs the all too obvious question that even comic fans ask: why wouldn't you just CUT the hanging skin, so your mouth works properly? And if you have to trim the excess skin off or cauterize it, big deal.<p>What, more burned or crappy skin is gonna look bad on the side of your face that is already totally fucked up and burned!? Just cut the fucking thing and be done with it!
