The first day of Comic-Con has, remarkably, come to a close, but that doesn't mean there is still plenty more for all of you to see. Because I was stuck in Hall H all day watching panels every day, I didn't have the chance to snap some new photos of various posters and more that's out there. So I've turned to a few of my colleagues and decided to feature these new posters. First up, we've got the official poster for Jonah Hex, as debuted by ShockTillYouDrop. Up next is a similarly designed poster for Solomon Kane from FSR. And lastly, three new posters for Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods hit on UGO tonight.
Click any of the posters above to see them in fullsize and to read more info on each movie. I'm sure everyone already knows about the DC Comics' movie Jonah Hex which stars Josh Brolin and Megan Fox (as seen on the poster). We expect them to debut a trailer and some footage at Comic-Con tomorrow during Warner Brothers' morning presentation. As for Solomon Kane, it's a new movie being directed by Michael J. Bassett (Deathwatch, Wilderness) and starring James Purefoy. And last, but certainly not least, is Cabin in the Woods, the fresh take on horror produced and written by Joss Whedon and directed by Drew Goddard.

They are obviosly not trying to hide the "Scary Movie Stereotypes" in Cabin. Maybe thats good?

First let me just say I'm in for JH for JB and JM two of the most talented actors at work today and especially JB because to me the dude is such badass and the perfect fit for JH imo. Now after saying all of that MF looks incredbily HOT there and I would still wan't to have an hour with her LOL ! As for TCITW it could be awesome, but the plot has already leaked out and it's really not all that special, but I'm still looking forward to it.

Magen fox looks good in this poster. hell she looks good in all posters, i still wanna see a trailer for the movie though and the other 2 as well.

The film is about the genre associations that go along with horror movies. The could've come up with something a bit more intriguing, but this works.

Also, why did Jonah Hex steal Ninja Assassin's crappy Underwolrd font?
Fuelbot on Jul 24, 2009
Heck, even The Cabin in the woods font would have looked better than that neo-modern crap the Jonah Hex poster has!

Since we're talking about fonts, I really love the Solomon Kane typography. It's both elegant and badass.

the Jonah Hex poster is really pushing Megan Fox's face out there I don't like how she's just staring at the viewer of the poster. ATTENTION WHORE.

Um, isn't Jonah Hex supposed to be a Western? That font for the logo looks like it's from Lost in Space.

I think Jonah Hex will be pretty good. Josh Brolin is awesome as well as John Malkovich. Meagan Fox is obviously smoking hot and hopefully her acting can stand up in this enough not to blow it, but the poster could've been better. Just look next to it. The Solomon Kane poster is sweet. Been waiting for that movie for a long time. Hopefully they make it as dark, gritty and violent as the books. In the books he even took the natives in the jungle that attacked him and strapped them to trees leaving them for the animals. Oh Yeah.

JH and SK both look pretty badass but the JH one looks all photoshoppy. ha ha silly CITW will destroy

Ok call me late to the game but can some one tell me what Johan Hex and Solomon Kane are about?
TheSaint on Jul 24, 2009
It looks like they did some photoshopping to megan fox's body in the poster

#12 just Wikipedia them, this is the internet! On IMBD there are 'reviews' for Solomon Kane, which make it sound badass, and pretty faithful to the source. But you know, all these people seeing movies that are even advertised yet 😛
