Hi-Res Look At JONAH HEX, Which Doesn't Help At All.
So that right there is the hi-res look at Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex and it does nothing to quell the notion of the movie sucking. It's not just my consistent dislike of superhero movies that makes me say this, I have actual reasons to. First of all pretty much any comic book movie that the Hollywood slime think will turn a buck gets the A treatment. Studio meatheads have no idea what any of this is all about so they push everything, everything they think people will buy into. Yet even with Josh Brolin who everybody is loving now and super starlet slut du jour Megan fox AND John Malkovich, nothing has really been said about this movie at all. No ungodly amount of tv spots or trailers, no six month press push, nothing. The movie comes out June 30th and nobody seems to care.
Add that to the constant reshoots being done and the fact that it actually does star Megan Fox and you can see the troubles brewing. I'll admit that I'd cut the brake line of a school bus filled with crippled children for a dirty weekend in a soiled hotel with Megan but watching her act, count me right the fuck out. The last thing is that picture, look at it, how fucking fake does that look. The whole point of Jonah Hex is that scarring but it looks more like Brolin rubbed a personal pan pizza on his cheek. Ironically the trailer for Jonah Hex will be attached to the Nightmare On Elm Street remake. I say ironic because the make up used on the new Freddy Krueger face is that same weak shit, making Freddy look more like Pizza The Hutt than a burned alive serial killer. If you're interested here's the plot synopsis:
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone... and anything. Having survived death, Jonah's violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the "other side." His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah's past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can't refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, "Jonah Hex" is an epic adventure thriller about one man's personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.
