Mob Approved: “Jonah Hex” Trailer
I admit that occasionally I get a little fanboy-ish when it comes to comic books and especially comic book movie adaptations (I’m still waiting for my Flash movie Hollywood!). Jonah Hex happens to be one of the characters I hold dear from the comic book world, and when I heard they were going to make a film adaptation, I was curious. That was until they released almost nothing about it, outside of some set pictures. Finally, they have released the trailer for this film and by all accounts…this is going to be a disaster.
The film version of Jonah Hex looks absolutely horrible. The character divulges completely from the comic book, inventing some crazy backstory and adding all these crazy supernatural elements for the sake of being over the top. Brolin looks like he’s slumming for a paycheck and Megan Fox…well, she’s poison to anyone who wants to watch some actual decent acting. Malkovich is playing the villain though, and that does still intrigue me, but not only do I think this looks bad as a Hex fan…it looks like a brainless crappy action movie as a film nerd.
If you love trainwrecks, or don’t have the fanboy love I do for the character, Jonah Hex will be hitting theaters to no fanfare June 18, 2010, but remember…the studio didn’t bother to put any marketing behind it until now, so that’s got to say something about the quality.
