Green Hornet Theatrical Trailer

We have a lot of "Greens" in movies nowadays. First we got DC's The Green Lantern featuring Ryan Reynolds on the lead role, scheduled to be released sometime next year, and now, we have The Green Hornet. Greeny 2011 huh?

For those of you who don't know who in the blue hell this Hornet guy is... he is a masked crimefighter.. Well, a wealthy newspaper publisher by day who decides to become a vigilante at night, trying to get rid of the bad guys (sounds familiar). Together with his sidekick Kato (who happens to be his employee), they go on to thwart and fight crime, taking the identity of The Green Hornet

The roles were played by Van Williams as the Green Hornet/Britt Reid and Bruce Lee as Kato in the 1970 TV series which lasted only for one season. That was Bruce Lee's first time exposure to the American audience, and we very well know what happened next after that. 

Anyway, this 2011 action-comedy film is directed by Michel Gondry, the film stars Seth Rogen in the title role, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Evan Goldberg. Supporting actors include Jay Chou as Kato, Christoph Waltz, Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, David Harbour and Tom Wilkinson. (Wooohoo!! Cameron Diazzzzz FTW!) Coming on January 2011.

Check out the trailer after the jump. Looks promising, and I have to say it... the trailer looks better than Green Lantern's. Damn you, DC.
