Speaking of Josh Brolin and the flop that was “Jonah Hex”, the film is headed to DVD and Blu-ray October 12, 2010 after barely making a peep at the box office. You can tell if the studio is “into” a movie (or not so much) by the amount of advertising they do for the film before its theatrical run, and likewise, by how much they put into the DVD content afterwards. In the case of “Jonah Hex”, the Special Features on the DVD and Blu-ray are barebones, which should tell you pretty much all you need to know.
Out of the pages of the legendary comics and graphic novels steps Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin), a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort who can track 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 one human connection is with Lilah (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past catches up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: to wipe out the warrants on his head, he must hunt and stop dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, now gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.
Special features (or lack thereof) include deleted scenes, and two Blu-ray exclusive featurettes, including “The Inside Story of Jonah Hex” and “The Weird Western Tales of Jonah Hex”, plus a digital copy of the movie in case you wanted to, you know, take it with you or something.
