Sony has released a new poster for their upcoming big screen adaptation The Green Hornet. The film and the poster features Seth Rogen, who plays the title character and Jay Chou who plays his sidekick and chauffeur Kato. Unlike the teaser poster that was released a while ago this one sheet has the characters front and center and they look like they’re up to something. Check it out…

Can someone please tell us what the hell it is that Seth Rogen is looking at in this poster? Chou’s character looks like he’s got something in his sights and Rogen’s just checking out the scene. We guess this is their attempt at looking baddass?

Green Hornet is based on the long running radio turned television series that ran during the 1930s and 1960s. The film stars 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 (Chou), who just happens to be a martial arts master.

The Green Hornet opens in theaters everywhere on January 14, 2011.
