Both Jonah Hex and The Last Airbender have found themselves being on the receiving end of both lousy reviews and terrible box office attendance recently, which makes me wonder: Do they provide a guide as to what not to do when adapting a property into a movie?
Jonah Hex fell 72% in its second weekend of release, pulling its total box office take to $9.2 million dollars – the second most unsuccessful movie of the year so far by a long way, and that’s not even taking its $35-50 million budget into account. But how badly does it hurt Warner Bros.?
Warner Bros. has released a two-minute trailer for Jonah Hex, the Jimmy Hayward-directed film based on DC Comics’ Western anti-hero. The movie, which stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox and John Malkovich, opens on June 18.
Warner Bros. has released four character posters for Jonah Hex, the Jimmy Howard-directed film based on DC Comics’ Western anti-hero. The movie, which stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox and John Malkovich, opens on June 18.
Warner Bos. has finally released the trailer for Jonah Hex, the DC Comics adaptation starring Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich and Will Arnett. The film opens on June 18.
On the heels of yesterday’s 10-second sneak peek of the Jonah Hex trailer — yes, a teaser of a teaser — Warner Bros. has released the movie’s first official poster. Given that the movie opens on June 18, it’s likely the only official poster.
The Jonah Hex movie trailer isn’t a myth! It’s an honest-to-goodness real thing that we’ll see Thursday night on Syfy. In case we’re not convinced, the cable channel has released a sneak peek — at 10 seconds, the emphasis is on “peek” — in which we glimpse some sort of flamethrower, horse-mounted Gatling guns, explosions and, of course, stars Josh Brolin, Megan Fox and John Malkovich.
Is Warner Bros’ western Jonah Hex in trouble? With less than two months before the movie is due to be released, audiences haven’t even seen a trailer for the Josh Brolin/Megan Fox comic book adaptation, and – according to an insider – that’s because the movie isn’t anywhere close to being completed yet.
