First Impressive Poster for Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet Hits
Columbia Pictures has debuted the first teaser poster for Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen and Jay Chou. This poster was first found on the NYCC showfloor by Latino Review, then officially unveiled by ComingSoon. I'm actually impressed, this is a very sleek design, I like the symmetry and logo in the headlines, it's pretty cool for an early teaser poster for this movie. We haven't seen an official US trailer since the first one debuted back in June, but I'm sure Sony/Columbia is gearing up some big marketing soon enough. Check out the first Green Hornet teaser poster below and let us know if you're impressed by it, too.
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. Thoughts?

@SnootchieBoochies Great wordplay there (if your 4 years old), funny but also emotionaly crushing. U crushed me. But the whole point of leaving comments is to air your opinions, and mine is I'm not convinced, I'll still stand in line and pay to see it tho.

are posters meant to convince you on the quality of the film? i thought it was to convince you to think about the film. surely you cant judge a film by its poster just like you cant judge a book by its cover

@LP I'm just basing my opinion on the poster, the trailer and lots of negative reports so far, I think the poster looks cool and I do want this movie to be good, and I interested enough to want to see it and make my own mind up.

Poster is eh...Still say it should be called Kato...The Green Hornet was NEVER meant to be a comedy...Seth Rogen is the wrong choice!

Really good! I've seen a lot of bad ones lately so this one is the best since The Last Exorcism.
Lincoln on Oct 16, 2010
that poster looks savage! i never saw the first green hornet and the only thing i know about it is that its the show that made bruce lee famous. i hope its good cuz that car looks sick and the bad guy is the guy off of inglorious bastards...so fingers crossed!

@reason, seriously? at least, at least wait for the damn movie to come out.
Xerxex on Oct 17, 2010
@ reason, so you've seen it then, or are you just a prick? @ xerxex, rock on.

needs a bit more sexy.
twipious on Oct 17, 2010
#10 has it right. Seth Rogen isn't even talented enough to play Seth Rogen in a movie. Just remember the scene with the gas gun in the trailer. Seth Rogen is a bafoon.
Jamie on Oct 18, 2010
What utter shit. THis HACK has destroyed the beloved Green Hornet forever. EPIC FAIL!!!!!
Clover on Oct 18, 2010
hate Seth Rogen but like the poster

Why does ComingSoon always seem the need to add their fucking watermark on posters? Until they stop doing that, I'm not visiting their website...
