 Seconds before he whips out the gatling guns.

This here is the actual trailer, not the preview to the trailer we ran earlier. So how does it look? Not half bad. Is it ridiculous? Yes. But that’s kind of what I’d want in a Weird Western. I’ll reserve judgment ‘till I actually see the thing.

You can already see some differences from the comics here. Hex gets his signature scars from a cattle-brand in the movie, not over a sacred ritual tomahawk fight, like in the comics. It’s an easy way to tie hi origin to the nemesis Malkovich is playing - - making his revenge quest mighty more personal.  Although, Hex also doesn’t have a bugged-out eye like the comics, either - - which I can understand. You can’t make him TOO ugly if his face is going to splashed all over posters, billboards and t-shirts. I imagine that you’ll see some similar compromise when (or if) the DEADPOOL movie ever gets off the ground. I really doubt you’ll be seeing Ryan Reynolds running around the entire time in a mask, only for his face to look like raw hamburger whenever he takes it off.

The other significant difference I see is that Hex has been given some supernatural powers, here. I don’t recall that being the case in the comics. Sure, a hex is a spell, but I figure he was named thusly because he fought against the supernatural, not because he was actually supernatural himself.

While we’re speaking of what won’t make the transition from the comics, I can say with absolutely certainty that you’ll never see the Autumn Brothers from the RIDERS OF THE WORM AND SUCH mini-series. DC had to go through quite a legal hassle over their inclusion in the comics - - first with the famous Winter Brothers, then with the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation. I seriously doubt they’d want to go through that again.

Anyway, here’s the trailer for y’all…

It looks bad@$$ for a western

#2 Posted by Caligula (12417 posts) - - Show Bio

looks amazing, Megan Fox, Josh Brolin, and John Malkovich are three of my all time favorite actors, and Jonah Hex is one of my favorite comics, so this is pure win.

Weren't no favorite o' mine seein' the little miss Fox there, plum too young if you ask me. But I reckon back in them days when them bandits savages were roamin' the west, men'd want 'em girls real young.

Lance Reddick and John Malkovich are too good for this movie.

I'll still see it because I love the comic, but this looks craptastic..... Maybe it will at least be a fun summer action film.

@Caligula: because constantine was the same horrible mess this is shaping up to be. Was it intertaining? Yes. Was it absolutely aweful? Double yes. Did i buy the blu-ray? You know it.

I am looking forward to this. Even with not being able to stand Fox or John Malkovich

If I can say, when did jonah hex become a super powered guy. When did he ever use magic? He's Jonah Hex. Sure he got his face hurt bad, but really when did he get powers?

but in the end the film should be entertaining and that's all that matters, of course it wasn't accurate to the comics, which was irritating at first, but if you watched you know the movie was good regardless of the fact.

Wow they really made Megan Fox look different and sound different but i don't think shes wearing no make-up.

#21 Posted by robokungfu (177 posts) - - Show Bio

This trailer can be summed up as "how many horrible lines and cheese-ball scenes can we cram into one trailer?"

#22 Posted by Jerry Seinfeld (598 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks interesting, probably will see.
#23 Posted by ManuelPrez (131 posts) - - Show Bio
@brendon277: she's using make-up but its a more natural tone.
#24 Posted by immortalfireboy (32 posts) - - Show Bio

Still looks fun.

@danhimself:  I might have to agree with him. Constantine was watchable to say the least
#30 Posted by lastdrag0n89 (590 posts) - - Show Bio

Actually, I think she is from the south. I could be wrong. But then again, this is a Western, not a Southern! :D

Looks like it could be Ghost Rider levels of terrible, or Shoot Em Up levels of entertaining.
 
I really, really hope it's the latter.

#45 Posted by doordoor123 (3721 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks like the funniest movie.
The horrible writing and acting will only make this movie funnier.
