The new trailer for Josh Brolin’s comic book western Jonah Hex has hit the internet over at IGN. The first thing you notice is that, where the first trailer emphasized Hex’s dead-family revenge storyline, the new one is action, action, action. There’s even a scene that shows Hex visiting a gunsmith, played by the indispensable Lance Reddick. The guns all have that steampunkish anachronistic vibe, which gives me bad flashbacks to Wild Wild West, but see for yourself.
It’ll be interesting to see how this movie plays: the cast is awesome (Malkovich Malkovich!) but not exactly stacked with blockbuster titans. The most famous name in the cast is in the midst of a minor career identity crisis. What do you think, PopWatchers? Will you see Jonah Hex?
