When it comes to action films, the big Summer 2010 movie season has plenty of them including: “Killers” with Ashton Kucher, “Knight and Day” with Tom Cruise, “Salt” with Angelina Jolie, “The Expendables” with Sylvester Stallone, “The A-Team” remake, and June 18th’s “Jonah Hex”. Jonah Hex tells the tale of a comic book cowboy superhero with big guns and one-liners looking to blast up anyone in his beaten path. Add a sultry cowgirl Megan Fox to the mix and you’re likely to get a few ticket sales out of this high-octane action thrill ride.

Jonah Hex is from the DC comics, the same line of comic books that brought us heroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Jonah is cowboy bounty hunter, considered a sort of anti-hero who has a violent history and scars from the past. You’ll see in the video preview, his face is scarred as well due to some branding done by the bad guys. From there, Jonah becomes a half-human, half-other world type anti-hero. Jonah sets out on a course to take down his biggest enemy Quentin Turnbull, at the request of the U.S. military. Along the way he blasts up cowboys, buildings and anything else he can. Megan Fox plays his only human connection a girl named Leila.
The stars of “Jonah Hex” will be Josh Brolin (as Jonah Hex), John Malkovich, Megan Fox as Leila, Will Arnett, Michael Fassbender and Michael Shannon. It’ll be interesting to see how Megan Fox does in this sexy new role which isn’t Transformers. Brolin is A-list after his work in films like “American Gangster” and Best Picture winner “No Country for Old Men”. John Malkovich will be the sinister villain who opposes Jonah Hex.
Check out the official Jonah Hex movie trailer below via YouTube video. This one hits theaters on June 18, 2010, and it may score big at the box office if enough comic, Megan Fox, or action fans scoop up tickets. This one looks interesting to me, because like “Watchmen” I’m not all that familiar with the Jonah Hex comic books, so it’ll be something new in the superhero genre.
