When was the last time we heard anything about Michel Gondry’s big screen adaptation of The Green Hornet? Yeah, it’s been a while but don’t fret the folks over at Latino Review have stumbled upon a new piece of marketing for the film. A new poster has been released that features Kato, Britt Reid, and their weapon and car of choice, The Black Beauty. 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.
Some people have bashed this poster and called it weak but we’ve seen worse. They can get an A for effort on this one. The car looks great and the hornet coming out of the smoke is a nice attempt at giving that vintage stamp of approval.
The Green Hornet hits theaters on January 14, 2011.
