    Default Did Megan Fox curse box office bomb 'Jonah Hex?'

    Buzz Log - Bombs Away!: 'Jonah Hex' Edition



    Nobody expected "Jonah Hex" to beat "Toy Story 3" at the box office. But even the most cynical Hollywood pundit couldn't foresee the flick's embarrassing eighth-place finish.

    Eighth place, kids. Not even elementary school science fairs hand out ribbons for eighth place. The movie made less money than the not-screened-for-critics "Killers," for crying out loud. And that's been out for three weeks! And (and!) it stars Ashton Kutcher! What the heck happened to 'Hex'?

    "Jonah Hex," based on a popular graphic novel, stars Josh Brolin (as Hex, the good guy) and John Malkovich (the bad guy) as Civil War ex-soldiers who spend a lot of time trying to kill each other. Those two get the lion's share of screen time, but we suspect a third actor is going to get the lion's share of the blame: Megan Fox.

    The starlet plays (what else?) a hooker with a heart of gold and a gun in her bodice. Though she appears on screen for only a matter of minutes, Claudine Puig of USA Today writes that Fox gives "a performance so inert she seems carved out of wax." Marshall Fine of Hollywood & Fine writes, "Everyone...seems to be sleepwalking through this film. Except for Megan Fox, who is such a terrible actress that she couldn't even act like she's sleepwalking."

    This marks Fox's second film in a row to crash and burn. Last year's "Jennifer's Body," penned by "Juno" scribe Diablo Cody, was ignored by many and mocked by everyone else. Previous to that, Fox starred alongside a bunch of CGI robots in "Transformers" and "Transformers 2." Both movies made a ton of money, but the effects were the main attraction, not Fox's acting.

    Although she's well on her way to acquiring the dreaded "box office poison" label (move over, Kate Hudson!), Web searches on Megan Fox are anything but toxic. Over the past week, lookups on Fox surged over 300%. And on Friday, the day "Jonah Hex" opened, Web lookups for "megan fox hot" were off the charts. People, it seems, want to see her. They just don't want to see her act.

    I don't think Meryl Streep could have saved this film, it looked so terrible. Fox was pretty decent in 'Jennifer's Body'--maybe she just needs better material or a lot of help from a more experienced director.

    ^^ I agree. They could use a cardboard cut out of her and no one would notice the difference.

    I hope her glory days are about up. But I am sure she will have to give a stupid interview with her "thoughts" or excuses on the box office numbers. I just wish she would die already....

    I don't believe she's cursed...she just can't act. Bad actress in a bad movie.

    And she does look like a wax figure after carving up her beautiful face. I have no idea why in the hell she would do that.
