What do you say about a game like Antihero? On the surface, that’s easy. It’s an electronic board game that has a really simple premise: you’re a thief trying to take over everything and there are other thieves trying to stop you. It should be simple. Ah, but if only the developers at Versus Evil were not evil masterminds hell bent on making you weep noisily and messily into your keyboard through the sheer frustration of losing at such a brilliant game, I’m sure that would be the case.
We have just returned from watching Iron Man 2. It was entertaining although not as great as the first one. Also, whilst Don Cheadle is a great actor, I really did miss Terence Howard as Rhodey. He and Downey Jr. had a great chemistry, something I didn’t quite see in Cheadle’s performance. It was admirable but a little flat. Anyways, you’re clearly not here for that.
Just as Iron Made made it from the comic book to the big screen, a DC Comics antihero who has been around since the 70s will soon be crossing the divide. In the upcoming action flick Jonah Hex, the surly bounty hunter is given a chance to clear warrants on his head if he tracks down and stops the plans of the villainous Quentin Turnbull. Hex was left scarred by Turnbull in the past so payback is certainly going to get ugly.
The first trailer hit the Internet this weekend. Check it out below – be warned it contains Megan Fox so you may be repulsed or titillated.
The role of Jonah Hex is played by Josh Brolin (Planet Terror, No Country for Old Men), with John Malkovich (Shadow of the Vampire, Con Air) playing Turnbull. And in one of her most challenging roles, Megan Fox tackles the role of Leila, a gun-wielding prostitute.
Jonah Hex releases in U.S. theatres on June 18th (movie poster) but it seems South African audiences may have to wait until August 3rd to see it.
Update (May 17th): Warner Brothers has recently released a set of new character posters for the movie. We thought you might like to see them. Megan Fox is there by default, but the inconvenient title text is obscuring her naughty bits.
