Warner Bros. has released a new two-minute trailer for its upcoming supernatural-western Jonah Hex. The clip features explosions, fights, and Megan Fox as sweaty prostitute Leila.

Take a look (courtesy of IGN):

Jonah Hex has been plagued with production problems since it was announced, including the departure of original directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank), bad-mouthing from star Josh Brolin (he thought the script was crap), and reshoots (with a new director).

I can’t help but wonder if Brian Austin Green is already blowing Michael Bay to get Megan Fox cast in Transformers 4.

Jonah Hex arrives in theaters on June 18.

Bollywood star Mallika Sherawat has tweeted a couple of new posters from her eagerly awaited creature-feature Hisss. Directed by Jennifer Lynch, the film stars Sherawat as a deadly half-woman/half-snake creature known in Eastern folklore as the Nagin.

Though shot in India, Hisss marks the 33-year-old stunner’s American feature debut. It’s no surprise she has really taken to promoting the film.  To see her charming snakes of all sizes during a photo call at the 63rd annual Cannes Film Festival, click here.

Hisss is still seeking distribution in the States. Let’s hope it finds it quick, along with the other “I-Horror” flicks being produced.

‘Martyrs’ Remake to be Written by ‘Vacancy’ Scribe!

martyrs_chick

Mark L. Smith, the screenwriter behind director Nimrod Antal’s underrated survival-frightener Vacancy, has written the latest draft to the upcoming American remake of the French film Martyrs.

Released in 2008 to critical acclaim, Martyrs centers on Anna, (Morjana Alaoui), a still-traumatized child abuse survivor abducted by a secret society convinced they can reach God by beating the living shit out of her for about an hour of the film’s duration.

It’ll be interesting to see if the remake remains as brutally violent as the original, which ends with Alaoui’s character flayed alive.

Personally, I had never seen such over-the-top, man-on-woman violence since I left home for college. If you think Jessica Alba taking a few rabbit punches to the face in director Michael Winterbottom’s The Killer Inside Me is sick, watch Martyrs … you can make a drinking game out of it!
