Jonah Hex will be released in theaters on June 18th yet the promotion for it has basically been non-existent. The first trailer for the film won’t drop until the end of this week and besides a few mediocre posters we’ve got nothing. Warner Bros. obviously wants Hex fans to know that they haven’t forgotten about him because a commercial for the trailer’s SyFy Channel premiere has already debuted online.
Here’s the teaser…
Is there a particular reason why within this video’s limited amount of time the editors felt it was necessary to show a damp and gleaming Fox in a corset? With that ridiculousness aside, we also get to see John Malkovich looking creepy (what he does best), and Brolin letting off a few rounds on horseback.
The Jonah Hex trailer will debut on the SyFy cable network on April 29th during their primetime line-up. There’s not much to say about Josh Brolin’s performance as the mutilated anti-hero or his co-star Megan Fox because the clip only lasts a good 11 seconds. With Brolin’s background we’re sure his acting will be top notch and as for Fox, she’ll probably do what she does best which is sit there and look pretty.
This has nothing on the footage that was shown at last year’s Comic-Con. It appears to be rather mediocre looking, which blows because Brolin has the chops to be a steady leading man but he needs a few hits under his belt. And with the crappy marketing for Hex how is that supposed to happen?
