Update: The theatrical trailer is now online. Watch it now!

Entertainment Tonight has released a sneak peek at the teaser trailer for Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet. It’s scheduled to debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this evening with an introduction by star Seth Rogen. The clip from ET is about a minute long and shows some pretty slick action on Jay Chou’s part and we get our first glimpse of Christoph Waltz as the villain. Take a look…

The majority of the dialogue in the footage is muted with the exception of Mark Steines’ voice over. We see Britt Reid (Rogen) being shown the world of vigilante crime fighting via Kato his driver and sidekick. Cameron Diaz also makes an appearance as a news reporter, and Waltz is doing his best contemporary bad guy impersonation complete with a leather jacket and a Caesar hair cut.

Earlier today we brought you the first official photos released from the film and now this preview clip. Columbia is pulling out all the stops to make sure that this movie has high visibility prior to its release.

Green Hornet is scheduled to hit theaters on January 14, 2011 and will be available in both 2D and 3D. The film will also open simultaneously in IMAX and conventional theaters.
