Some of you have been waiting to see what Warner Bros. film version of Jonah Hex really looks like. Now’s your chance, as the trailer has finally hit, with all the scarred Josh Brolin you can handle. Read More »
There’s been very little Jonah Hex material out there for the past year, but why do I get the idea that after this week we’re going to see a lot of the film? The trailer hits on Thursday and now Warner Bros. has released a new poster, via Yahoo.
This image makes relatively clear the idea that the film has comic book origins (or perhaps the character poses and title font just say ‘comic book’ to me) and also looks like it comes from WB’s school of Harry Potter poster design. But this one has more gatling guns, so it is obviously better. I’m also curious about Josh Brolin getting the only billing; not even a smaller piece above the credit block for Megan Fox. And very little to suggest that, yeah, that’s John Malkovich about to hadouken Jonah Hex.
As you can see in the full poster, after the break, the film is out on June 18. We’ll have the trailer later this week. (And if you want some unkind takes on the film, AICN has several negative test screening reactions.) Read More »
There have been reshoots and delays, but Warner Bros. will still release Jimmy Hayward‘s Jonah Hex, starring Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich and Michael Fassbender, on time. A trailer will premiere later this week, but in the meantime there’s a small teaser montage available via SyFy. It resembles the footage we saw last year at Comic Con, and you can see it after the break. Read More »

Where’s Jonah Hex? We saw footage from the film at last year’s Comic Con, but aside from a few reshoot reports and word of Mastodon sharing scoring duties, there’s been basically nothing to report on the film since then. Few pics, no trailer. Earlier this week, as part of a rumor that suggested Lobo was dead at WB, there was a report that the studio isn’t happy with the film.
Then Vulture talked to Brent Hinds of Mastodon, and based on his description of the scoring process and one comment in particular, many read the piece as saying “the film is delayed!” Reps for the movie, meanwhile, insist that we’ll see a trailer on April 29, and that it will be attached to prints of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Meanwhile, Hinds’ comments are still a window into the process of finishing the film. Read More »

We’ve known for a while that Jonah Hex would be going back in front of cameras for reshoots this month. In this case, ‘additional shooting’ may be a more appropriate term, as the point seems to be adding new material in addition to ‘fixing’ a few scenes shot last year. Once the reshoot news arrived, rumors began to swirl around the Warner Bros. film and now we’ve got some additional info on what exactly is going down in Hex’s wild west. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Two weeks of reshoots and/or additional shooting will take place for Jonah Hex at the beginning of the year, and a set of casting call notes has gone out describing the characters involved. There are a few significant ones: Jeb Turnbull, son of John Malkovich‘s primary villain, and Cassie, Hex’s wife. Casting these characters implies that a couple of sequences will be shot that are flashbacks to Hex’s past.
Cassie is mentioned but not seen in earlier drafts of the script. One draft I read had an extensive flashback featuring Jeb Turnbull, with a couple of big scenes, so the quick either/or supposition is that either that sequence wasn’t shot, or was extensively changed at the time and is now being reworked again. The former seems more likely. President Andrew Johnson is also being cast. That flashback was set in 1862, too early for him to be President (he took office in 1865) so there could be more than just the flashback to shoot. Also, I’m not sure how many drafts of Hex exist after the one I read, so don’t think any of this is set in stone. [SpoilerTV]
After the break, news on Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s romcom, Social Network, and some extra Yogi Bear news. Read More »
What appears to be the first official image of Jonah Hex is now with us… and it looks quite a bit like a costume or makeup test. Amusingly, it shows off Hex’s mussed-up face rather well, but hides his eyes under his hat brim. This is not the standard tease for things like this. Check it out after the break.
Jonah Hex is the first live action film to be directed by Jimmy Hayward, a one time Pixar animator who was later responsible for Blue Sky’s Horton Hears a Who. It seems that he was virtually hand picked for the job by the star, Josh Brolin. Read More »
