With a June 18 release date fast approaching, Warner Bros. has released a second trailer for Jonah Hex. While the first trailer focused on the story of Jonah Hex, the second trailer is all about selling the action and letting you know the film has a supernatural element. And you know what…it works. While I agreed with Matt’s assessment that the first trailer was all over the place, by not trying to do too much in the second trailer, I think more will be interested in the film.
For more on Jonah Hex…here’s my set report and on set interviews with Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Director Jimmy Hayward and a ton of images. Hit the jump for the new trailer.
To help prepare for a ton of Jonah Hex movie articles that are coming Thursday morning, I screen grabbed 36 high-resolution images from the recently released trailer. While you may have already watched the trailer, I’m pretty sure you missed a bunch of stuff if you only saw it once. I was very surprised how many cool images I was able to grab from it. Hit the jump to look them over and check back Thursday morning for a ton of Hex coverage:
The trailer for Jonah Hex has gone online and I don’t think it’s going to remove any of the doubts raised by the 11th-hour marketing. The footage I saw of the film at last year’s Comic-Con was very simple and very bad-ass: Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) kills everyone. His line in the trailer about his enemies needing eight coffins instead of five isn’t going to get that idea across (of course, this is provided the final cut of the film still holds to Hex-Murders-the-World).
But the biggest problem is that this trailer is all over the place. It’s a vengeance story in the old west but Hex also has superpowers and everybody wants to fight him for some reason. The weapons look cool, but on the whole the trailer seems like it’s trying too hard.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with the official synopsis. Jonah Hex hits theaters on June 18th.
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.
