A new trailer has been released for Michel Gondry’s latest film, The Green Hornet. Doesn’t it seem like everything “green” is debuting this week? First we had the Green Lantern trailer from Warner Bros and now Sony has released a new one for Hornet. What can they do to set this film apart from the other green guy? They can add Kato-vision!!! Check it out…
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.
As much as we all want to hate this film, the early reviews for it haven’t been bad. Maybe we’ll be pleasantly surprised by what Rogen and Chou have to offer? I’m not personally invested in it because Bruce Lee will always be Kato in my eyes, but I don’t hold a grudge against Chou.
The Green Hornet will open in theaters on January 14.
