Columbia Pictures has released a new Fast & Furious style poster for Seth Rogan's new film The Green Hornet. The film was directed by Michel Gondry, and it looks like it could be a fun flick. I'm really interested to see what Gondry has planned for the action sequences because he's talked about how they are going to be different from anything we've seen before. Of course, I have seen anything like that in the trailers, so we'll have to just wait and see.
Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son and heir to Los Angeles' largest newspaper fortune, is a rich, spoiled playboy who has been happy to maintain a direction-less existence. When his father James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) dies, Britt meets an impressive and resourceful company employee, Kato (Jay Chou). They realize that they have the resources to do something worthwhile with their lives and finally step out of James Reid's shadow.
Kato builds the ultimate weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with every weapon imaginable and Britt decides that in order to be heroes, they will pose as villains. With the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). He has united all the gangs under his power, and he quickly sees that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to the prosperous criminal underworld he controls.
The movie is set to be released on January 14th 2011. Are you looking forward to it?
