Before the big 4th July holiday the first trailer for Michel Gondry‘s The Green Hornet made its debut. While it may not have been the worst thing we’d ever seen, it definitely wasn’t the best. The film is just one of many remakes — 3D remakes hitting theaters next year that will overcrowd the cinemas. Over at Trailer Addict, they posted the slightly shorter international version of the trailer that shows a little more footage and some new shots of Cameron Diaz‘s character. We’re not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing, take a look…
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, the heir to a major media conglomerate who spends his free time fighting crime as a vigilante hero after the death of his father (Tom Wilkinson). He’s typically aided by his driver Kato (Jay Chou), who just happens to be a martial arts master.
Is it just us or are all of the main actors in this film playing the same character’s they’ve been playing for the majority of their careers? Christoph Waltz just got an Oscar for playing a bad guy, and we all know Rogen and Diaz have been playing the same types of roles for a while now. It’s unfortunate that they only thing interesting about this film is Jay Chou. Oh, well.
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.
