Best Look at Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex Yet

While most folks are obsessed with focusing on Megan Fox around these parts, a good look at a scarred and scary avenger piques much more attention than just another pretty face. And, man, do we have a good look at Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex for you!

Warner Brothers released the official still you see below for the upcoming flick. We’ll find out whether or not Hollywood stays true to Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti’s source material when Jonah Hex, starring Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich and Will Arnett, opens on June 18, 2010.

Synopsis
Having cheated death, gunslinger and bounty hunter Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) has one foot in the natural world and one in the supernatural realm. Jonah’s unusual nature gives him the ability to track down anyone, or anything, so the Army makes him an irresistible offer: They’ll erase the warrants on his head if Jonah will find Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is preparing to unleash hell on Earth, is Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing to kill him once and for all.

    Anyone want to take bets on this being a big pile of shit?

    • Terminal

      So far it seems likely. That’s a shame because Josh Brolin is a very good actor, and he deserves a franchise to blow his career up like Iron Man did for RDJ.

    What I find interesting is that the Jonah Hex comics I read as a kid always had him in straight action stories,taking on outlaws, defending people in trouble,etc. I never read any of the stories where there were supernatural elements incorporated into it.

    I will say that though the scar closely reflects the one from the comics, overall this looks like Josh Brolin with a Jonah Hex-style scar on his face. Brolin can act though (just watch “W.” sometime as Exhibit A) so I’m going to just wait and see. .

      The Lansdale stories had a lot of supernatural horror. Keep in mind Hex was also transported in time to become a Mad Max type of character too.

      As far as the movie I haven’t seen anything that either bothers or excites me (well, I think the ‘blue’ poster is awful). They certainly don’t seem to be going out of their way to build excitment like something like Predators or Iron Man 2 are doing. I think this will be one of those see it before it disappears next weekend summer releases.

    I’m keeping an open mind about this one.

    Horror & Western, two great tastes that should go we together.

    Mind you I’m less likely to be disappointed because I only have a passing familiarity with the source material.

    I care more about Mastodon. Who gives a shit about Megan Fox.

  • Terminal

    I’m quite disappointed he doesn’t look more disfigured. I’m not really looking forward to this. Let’s face it people are going to care about Megan Fox.

      Probably right there. But Megan Fox would be a reason that I would hesitate to see this. I saw both Transformers and Jennifers Body and have now had my lifetime supply of Megan Fox. She can not act. Well, ok she can act da fool but that’s about it.

      • Terminal

        Did you see the poster for the film? It’s basically “MEGAN FOX as a prostitute in the Wild West! Oh… and there’s Josh Brolin too. I guess.”

        This movie is going to be marketed around Fox, I just know it. Yeah she’s yet to be in a good movie.

        • FireRam

          I had the same thoughts!!

        • Floydian Trip

          Megan Fox is an idiot and can’t act. Who cares what she looks like.

          • Vanvance1

            I’m not sure if she can act or not. Odds are you’re right but I guess we’ll see what happens when she gets a decent role.

            Transformers 2 had a lot worse going on than Fox. I don’t think anyone came out of that one looking good.
