About two weeks ago we broke the news the first trailer for director Jimmy Hayward’s (Horton Hears a Who) Jonah Hex would premiere on the Syfy channel the night of April 29th. It seems our story has been confirmed as Syfy has aired a promo for the premiere of the trailer and it includes the very first footage from Jonah Hex! Yes, you can finally see real footage of Josh Brolin, Megan Fox and John Malkovich!
Rather than have me waste time giving you my impressions on a few seconds of footage, hit the jump and check it out for yourself. And if you’re going to see A Nightmare on Elm Street this weekend, the trailer will play before the movie. Look for an online version either this Thursday or Friday.
Here’s the synopsis:
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.
