The new trailer for Jonah Hex shows everyone why Josh Brolin is a bona fide bad ass. From the horse-strapped machine guns to the wit, Brolin has completely nailed comics' weirdest Western hero. Plus Megan Fox doesn't look too shabby.

It seems as if the movie will be completely different from the comics, but the character's attitude seems to be intact. Then again Hex has had quite a few origin stories, so we're open to it. And we'll trade a little canon leeway for this type of Brolin delivery any day.

Here's a collection of stills we grabbed — including the crow cough and a bunch of new antique gun goodness. Are those tiny cross bow guns shooting dynamite?

Synopsis:

The U.S. military makes a scarred bounty hunter with warrants on his own head an offer he cannot refuse: in exchange for his freedom, he must stop a terrorist who is ready to unleash Hell on Earth.

Jonah Hex will be in theaters June 18th.

Goddamnit it, I'll be the one to say it: Wild Wild West was a pretty bad-assed steampunk film. It had a giant steam-driven spider, for the Other Gods' sake! Jonah Hex ain't steampunk. It's more like...Ghost Rider with a horse instead of a motorbike. It's a supernatural western with just a little semi-anachronistic technology* thrown in for shits n' giggles. I like it. It has a definite Joe Landsdale feel.

*Horse-mounted machine-guns actually *were* tested in the wake of the civil war but never went anywhere 'cause they scared the horses so goddamn bad you couldn't aim 'em at anything!)
