ComingSoon.net have unveiled the first poster for Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen and Jay Chou. It’s pretty good too, highlighting the iconic car and logo.
Rogen stars as Britt Reid, a bored newspaper heir who dresses up at night and fights crime, accompanied by his trusty sidekick Kato. The movie is an adaptation of the radio show first broadcast in 1936, which was later adapted for TV in the famous 1960’s TV series starring Bruce Lee.
Expect to see much more from this as the January 14th release date approaches.
Britt Reid is the son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene — until his father mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato, they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. But in order to do this, they decide to become criminals themselves — protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.
Using all his ingenuity and skill, Kato builds the ultimate in advanced retro weaponry, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car equal parts firepower and horsepower. Rolling in a 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, they begin hunting down the man who controls LA’s gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky. But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to swat down The Green Hornet once and for all.
