The Green Hornet *FIRST TRAILER*

By on 22 June, 2010

‘The Green Hornet’ trailer was unveiled last night, with the director and cast members taking questions on this reimagining of the classic masked crime-fighting twosome.

The movie is directed by Michel Gondry and starring Seth Rogan as The Green Hornet along with Jay Chou as Kato

The story centres on Brit Reid (Rogan), the son of LA’s most prominent and much respected media mogul (played by Tom Wilkinson) and serial party animal. When Britt discovers that his father died mysteriously he then hears that he will be inheriting a huge media empire. Striking an unlikely alliance with one of his father’s industrious and ‘creative’ employees, Kato (Chou), Britt then begins to realise that there can be more to life than booze and women – a life of fighting crime.
The snag is that they have to become criminals first – protecting the law by breaking it. Thus creating the vigilante The Green Hornet, and along with Kato..they take to the streets.

Kato‘s lasting inventive legacy would prove to be The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with equal parts firepower and horsepower. Driving in the ‘mobile fortress on wheels’ and striking the bad guys with Kato‘s clever gadgets, The Green Hornet and Kato quickly start making a name for themselves, and with the help of Britt’s new secretary, Lenore Case (played by Cameron Diaz), they begin hunting down the man who controls LA’s gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky (played by Christoph Waltz). But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to bring down The Green Hornet once and for all.

The Green Hornet is set for 14th January 2011 release in the U.S – with other locations following shortly. Not only will there be 3-D and 2-D version..but also an IMAX 3-D experience.

Looking forward to this!
