Featuring the incredible cast of Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox, Will Arnett and Michael Shannon, Warner Bros. Pictures finally released the official trailer for Jonah Hex, their adaptation of the DC comic book arriving in theaters June 18. Scarred bounty hunter Jonah Hex (Brolin) is charged with tracking and hunting down his oldest enemy who is preparing to unleash Hell. The footage looks great, but all of the early test screening reviews have me a tad nervous.
“Jonah Hex 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 Lila, whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. 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. 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.”
