Hey Gang! Columbia Pictures has released the first two promo images for Seth Rogen's new film The Green Hornet. The film was directed Michael Gondry (Be Kind Rewind) and also stars Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou, Edward James Olomos, David Harbour, Tom Wilkinson and Christoph Waltz.
The trailer for the film will debut tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live. We will get it up for you online as soon as it becomes available.
In the film, Britt Reid (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) mysteriously 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 and gadget 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.
I'm not sure what to expect from the film. I hope it turns out to be good, but I've been hearing otherwise. If nothing else, it should end up being a fun movie to watch. The film is set to be released on January 14th 2011, in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D. Check out the images below and hit us up with your thoughts!
