As promised, the first trailer for Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet has finally arrived! It was originally scheduled to premiere on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” but I guess Yahoo Movies said screw that and decided to debut it instead. Either way, its time to see if months of reshoots and recasts were a good or a bad sign of things to come. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think…
Green Hornet is based on the long running radio turned television series that ran during the 1930s and 1960s. The film stars Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, a young newspaper publisher who spends his free time fighting crime as a vigilante hero. He’s typically aided by his driver Kato (Jay Chou), who just happens to be a martial arts master. The film also stars Cameron Diaz as the female lead and Christoph Waltz as the villain.
I’m not completely blown away by this trailer but it’s not as bad as I thought. It looks like every other glossy superhero movie that’s come out in the past few years. There’s nothing really groundbreaking here.
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.
What do you think of the first photo of Green Hornet? Does it look better or worse than you thought it would?
