Jonah Hex Trailer Lets Josh Brolin Be Badass
Jonah Hex finally has a trailer and, in spite of that distracting flap of skin hanging over Josh Brolinís mouth which I realize is in the comics but doesnít really work at all on an actual human being, itís kind of good. Most of the credit for how well the trailer works has to go to Brolin, who nails it as a growling, bad-ass cowboy with a tendency towards large guns and Pushing Daisy-like super powers. Maybe the movie will be good and maybe it wonít, but Brolin seems to be giving his first blockbuster hero role his all. I expected nothing less.
Watch the first trailer for Jonah Hex below or in glorious HD on Yahoo.
Brolin is Jonah Hex is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyoneÖand anything.

But Jonahís past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he canít 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).
