Another Megan Fox Movie Fails at the Box Office Without Shia LaBeouf

This weekend, the comic book adaptation (another one? really?) "Jonah Hex" opened to rather dismal box office numbers, coming in seventh place over the weekend.
[N]ewcomer Warner Bros' Jonah Hex already is such a flop that it's not even meeting the studio's low opening weekend expectation of $10M from 2,825 venues after it wasn't tracking. My sources say it opened to only $1.9M Friday and $1.7M Saturday so it's hard-pressed to get to even $5M this weekend.

Of course, I would kill to make a movie that earned even close to $5 million in a single weekend. The most any of my films have earned over a three-day period has been six dollars worth of hamburger meat.

Anyway, what are sources at the studio saying about the film and its "failure"?
As one Warner Bros exec said about the lesson learned; "You don't take a handsome actor and disgfigure him."
That's the "lesson learned"? Really? Take a look at this image from the film:

Megan Fox plays a hot hooker in a corset. I stared at that picture for about three minutes before I even realized there was another person in it.

Trust me, it doesn't matter that Josh Brolin's face is made up with a garish scar. Megan Fox is a hot hooker in a corset. Sometimes, she gets handcuffed to stuff.

Their first mistake was in not naming the film "Megan Fox Handcuffed in a Corset."

Their second mistake? Well, before I get to that, let's goose my google search position by posting another picture of Ms. Fox in a corset:

As they used to say in the old west: Yee-haw!

But back to my point, which will come as no surprise to anyone who read the title of this blog post: The studio's second mistake was in casting a film with Megan Fox and yet neglecting to cast Shia LaBeouf to act alongside her.

As I've already written, when Ms. Fox is paired onscreen with Mr. LaBeouf, box office magic ensues. When she is not, well, you get "Jennifer's Body."

And now, "Jonah Hex."

That's your lesson learned, Warner Bros.

megan needs to stop getting tattoos that require long explanations and making strange comments in interviews... those are her two biggest headline getters, but neither of those things make people think of watching her in a movie. or she just needs to sign on to shia's next movie, whichever.

Pitifully we have to accept Megan Fox is not a good actress, she is not the new Angelina Jolie, however her voluptuous body has help her to get important personages in different movies, which in the great m,majority has been a complete fail.
