Last week, we shared some “explosive” new TV spots for Jonah Hex. Today, we’ve got the second official trailer for the movie and it delivers an even bigger action punch.
The new trailer, which comes our way via IGN, features much of the same content from the first Jonah Hex trailer, but with a few important additions.
For one thing, the second trailer doesn’t offer as much insight into Jonah Hex’s origins. In fact, there is hardly any footage featuring John Malkovich, who plays Hex’s nemesis, Quentin Turnbull.
However, the second trailer does flesh out some of the supernatural elements of the film, which, it should be noted, do not exist in the comic book version of the character. Also, a whole bunch of stuff gets blowed up real good! Yeehaw!!
Check out the new trailer below.
Personally, while I like Jonah Hex as a character and I admire Josh Brolin as an actor, I don’t find anything particularly compelling about this film. It seems like too much of a generic summer blockbuster for my tastes.
Also, I’m not sure whether I like that they turned Hex into a sort of Desperado version of Ghost Rider. It might not go over as well at the box office, but what’s wrong with simply making an awesome, action-packed Western?
There’s also the Megan Fox factor to consider. Some people think she’s all right, but I’m definitely not one of them. For her sake, I hope she manages a stellar turn in the movie since she’s no longer a part of the Transformers franchise.
What do you think of the trailer? Does it deliver the goods, or will you pass on Jonah Hex?
Jonah Hex hits theaters on June 18th, 2010.
