You can tell when the marketing machines are working themselves into the ground when a trailer for a trailer is issued, and the bizarrely renamed SyFy channel are proudly premiering the first look trailer for Jimmy Hayward’s kind of anticipated comic book adaptation Jonah Hex this Thursday.

So proud are SyFy that they have released a trailer for their trailer, and while this is not a new practise there will be some fans who can’t wait to get their first look at Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex. Lucky viewers will also get a small look at Megan Fox and John Malkovich too.

The good people at Trailer Addict (via Collider) have unfurled this one on a waiting world and the footage is embedded below, and we’ll be sure to bring the full trailer when it’s up this week.
