Despite what you might have heard Warner Bros’ Jonah Hex adaptation is still going strong and to prove it the studio has released a new poster. The earlier teasers only featured stars Josh Brolin and Megan Fox, but this time around John Malkovich makes an appearance along with a devious looking Michael Fassbender. Check it out…
Jonah Hex is based on the DC Comics property about a disfigured gunman who travels through the Old West kicking ass and taking names later. Brolin plays the title character, while Fox stars as his love interest who also happens to be a prostitute (no surprise there). Malkovich plays the film’s main villain, an older gentleman named Quentin Turnbull who has a serious vendetta against Hex and will stop at nothing to see him dead.
This poster is not impressive and looks kind of cheap, which is sad because Warner Bros’ comic movies usually have a professional and polished appearance. There’s such a lack of effort coming from the marketing team behind this movie. Even though she’s not an amazing actress Megan Fox could be somewhat of a draw for them, but they don’t even highlight her name on the poster.
Also, you can barely see Michael Fassbender in the background, who appeared in last year’s Inglourious Basterds, and Will Arnett’s not even pictured! Do they not know how many Arrested Development fans would be all over this if they knew he was involved? We’re not sure what direction the studio is going to take but it looks like Hex might be a box office bomb.
What do you think of the new Jonah Hex poster? What do you think of the marketing for the film? Are you interested in seeing it?
