    From the director of "Horton Hears a Who!" comes the legendary tale of "Jonah Hex," the horribly scarred gunslinger of the Old West....

    Well, the trailer finally arrived, just two months shy of the film's June 18 release date and, well, things don't look so good. It's a shame, too, cuz it's got a great cast including Josh Brolin, Michael Fassbender, Will Arnett, John Malkovich and Michael Shannon. Megan Fox is also in the film.

    When footage of "Sherlock Holmes" began floating around, there were whispers that it smacked of another "Wild, Wild West"-style mess. That criticism proved unfair, but "Jonah Hex" seems ripe to claim the mantle. Sfter all the rumors of trouble and re-shoots and such, the disappointment comes as no great surprise.

    That said, we're rooting for this movie, and those horse-mounted Gatling guns are dope.
