And Now, The GREEN HORNET Trailer

Well, this is a bit more like it.

Last night I was not that impressed with the brief glimpse we got of the upcoming Green Hornet film starring Seth Rogen. I felt that it played up the expected Seth Rogen screen personna at the possible expense of what the film is really about.

But now we have the film’s first official trailer and it feels as if it has a much different mission than the Entertainment Tonight clip. Here, the trailer is introducing the character to audiences who are probably unfamiliar with him. It sets up Britt Reid’s motivations in becoming the Hornet as well as the hero’s fairly unique modus operandi of posing as a criminal to bring down organized crime. It sells both the action and what appears to be a light tone for the film without dipping into camp territory.

There have also been two new photos from the film released. The first is Christoph Waltz as the villainous Chudnowsky while the second shows Rogen and Jay Chou as Kato in a mock up of what will become the Hornet’s car, the Black Beauty.
