The Green Hornet Movie Trailer with Seth Rogan and Jay Chou


The Green Hornet is the latest in a long line of comic book adaptations coming to the big screen. This time the title character is played by a more non typical lead in Seth Rogan who plays the title character The Green Hornet, newspaper publisher by day, and crime fighter by night aided by his valet Kato, played by Jay Chou.

The Green Hornet like most adaptations these days has already gone through production and rewrite hell with the movie first announced way back in 2002, and every actor director and their cat and dog has been attached to the project. My interest was piqued when I heard Stephen Chow was on board to direct and star as Kato, but he pulled out due to scheduling conflicts and Michel Gondry stepped up to direct. The Green Hornet was fully set to rock and roll in 2009 when Seth Rogen introduced the car in the movie the ‘Black Beauty’ at the San Diego Comic Con and it also features quite prominently in the trailer which you can take a look at below.

We still have a while to wait till the Green Hornet gets released in January 2011 but from the trailer it looks like it can keep up with the current crop of comic book flicks.
