With Warner Bros. Jonah Hex movie getting released June 18, the studio has finally ramped up their marketing campaign with a new poster and the first trailer. While the trailer won’t be online till Thursday night, we posted a ten second preview yesterday. But while you wait for the trailer, the studio has given us the poster and you can take check it out after the jump.
While the new poster is supposed to get everyone excited, I’m actually not that impressed. I prefer the one they released at Comic-Con as it was simple and looked cool. The new one seems way too crowded and you’re not sure where to look. Perhaps character posters are coming. Let’s hope so.
Here’s the synopsis. We’ll post the trailer as soon as it’s online.
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.
