Ok, at long last the Green Hornet gets a trailer and it DOESN’T SUCK!!
Still a long wait for this to come out, it’s January 14th so do expect a few more trailers , posters and can we say we have something to look forward to in the New Year? Tell us what you think…
Now despite all the talk about how they were going to play Green Hornet straight, there is still a trademarked
Seth Rogen goofiness about this, but it looks good. Kato is playing the straight-man to keep Seth’s goofiness in line, and I like that they are keeping it so that the Hornet is the symbol, but Kato is the muscle and skill. I still would have liked to see Seth Rogen get out of his typecast, but this is not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Looks like a good mix of laughs and action and a LOT better than I thought we were going to get with all the setbacks and rumours during production. I am now officially looking forward to this.
PS: Check out the first official movie poster.
The Green Hornet is directed by visionary French filmmaker Michel Gondry, who (in addition to numerous music videos and commercials) previously directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, Dave Chappelle's Block Party and Be Kind Rewind. The screenplay was co-written by Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen, of Pineapple Express and Superbad. This is based on the classic characters created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker in the 1930s, known best as a TV series in the 60's with Van Williams & Bruce Lee. Sony is bringing The Green Hornet to theaters (in 3D) starting on January 14th next year.
