Watch This: First Trailer for Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet!
Sony has debuted the official trailer for Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet on Yahoo tonight. Rogen stars as Britt Reid, aka Green Hornet, and Jay Chou stars as his sidekick Kato. They're joined by Cameron Diaz, Tom Wilkinson, Edward James Olmos and Christoph Waltz as the bad guy. I've been waiting to see the trailer for this for a while, because with Michel Gondry directing, I'm more interested in seeing how he is tackling the character more than anything. I've got to say, the visuals and the action in this looks awesome, but boy does the comedic tone seem totally out of place. I didn't really laugh at all. Not sure what to make of this?

The Green Hornet is directed by visionary French filmmaker Michel Gondry, who (in addition to numerous music videos and commercials) previously directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, Dave Chappelle's Block Party and Be Kind Rewind. The screenplay was co-written by Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen, of Pineapple Express and Superbad. This is based on the classic characters created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker in the 1930s, known best as a TV series in the 60's with Van Williams & Bruce Lee. Sony is bringing The Green Hornet to theaters (in 3D) starting on January 14th next year.
