In the UK, we don’t get to see Jonah Hex for another 3 months (!) which seems crazy when it’s being released in the US next week. But then again, The A-Team and The Karate Kid are out this weekend in the US and we don’t get either of them until 28th July. I guess it’s all around the World Cup which is a shame as I really to see all these movies.
Jonah Hex is directed by Jimmy Hayward and stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender, Will Arnett and Michael Shannon.
Since the movie is released so soon, Warner Bros. have released a full press kit for the movie which is based on the comic book of the same name.
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. Early rumors emerged about a zombie army or Quentin trying to rewin the war, but these were dismissed when producers said “Quentin is more of a terrorist upset about the outcome of the war not someone trying to fight and rewin it.”
