7 Smashing Clips From The Green Hornet

3 Comments

Hard to believe, but Michel Gondry’s “The Green Hornet” is opening next week. Remember when this movie had such a hard time getting off the ground and all the controversy surrounding Seth Rogen being cast as the Green Hornet? Well, it’s time to see if it worked or not when the film opens next week on January 14, 2011. Until then, here are seven clips to get you started. Love the Kato Vision clip. The Cameron Diaz in her undies clip ain’t bad, either.

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.

Starring Christoph Waltz, Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Edward Furlong, Edward James Olmos, Tom Wilkinson, Jay Chou, Chad Colema, Sterling Cooper, Analeigh Tipton, David Harbour, Eddie Rouse and directed by Michel Gondry.

    Still iffy on the tone, but it looks promising. If it’s evenly done and not just over the top silly when it’s trying to be funny it could work, but a sequel needs to be darker, and Brit (Hornet) needs to be able to hold his own at least so I’m hoping if they do a sequel it’s like 6 months in and he’s been training. Not martial arts style but a brawler/street fighter type.

    I agree and I agree. I have a feeling we may come away from this feeling like Kato was the hero and Brit is the side-kick. That happened in the show mostly because of Lee’s ego (no offense intended) – the movie should be able to avoid that.

    With regards to the tone, it looks to me like this movie got a major over-haul after the studio got an initial look at it – I have a feeling this movie will need to explode at the box office in order for us to see a sequel.
