Seth RogenSubmit Comment
As promised, the trailer for the upcoming "Green Hornet" film, starring Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou and Christoph Waltz, has appeared online. Check it out below.

Plot: The story follows the adventures of Brit Reid (Rogen). A wealthy publisher of The Daily Sentinel by day, Reid roams as a masked crime fighter by night, dedicated to protecting the lives and rights of the city's citizens. Reid is accompanied by Kato, a chauffeur/bodyguard/personal assistant during business hours who transforms into a masked sidekick with a knack for martial arts when the sun goes down.

"The Green Hornet" is directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and is scheduled to hit 3D and 2D theaters on January 14th, 2011.

Looks decent. Looks funny. Diaz is gonna ruin it! Especially in light of her stupid lesbian comment...she is very much not "ba-boing" (See Ranger) material to me right now!

This trailer/soundtrack/costumes/"vibe" is nothing like the original show which is just great (only had 1 season though)--it's just basically a Hollywood fantasy on the original. Could be cool. Seems worth a matinee price at least!

Hmm... I'm having mixed feelings about this film. Seth Rogen is finally not in a friggin Apatow film but the film looks really chessy and the action looks like I'ce seen ut all before. So I'll just wait until reviews come out to see if its good or not. But Christoph Waltz as the bad guy is an extra bingo to this movie (watch 'Inglourious Basterds' to understand that joke).

Glad to see Seth Rogen finally taking a more serious approach to acting. Not sure if the sarcasm came through on that one, but this looks really goofy. I thought it was gonna be more serious, a period piece and feature a heroic, confident main character. Still might give it a chance, but this is not what I was expecting.

Bunny X writes:

Yes, it does look better than I expected, and yes, Diaz is a dead weight in this movie.
I wish Seth would have done a more serious role before this one because I just cannot take him seriously in a role like this. Sure, there's humor to the character and he plays up the spoiled party son of the killed billionaire to a tee, but to me it's like he's coming up a bit short on this once he goes Green Hornet mode.
Stephen Chow would have been perfect as Kato since Chow is older than....Chou....But I do like Jay Chou.

Uggh I'm really on the fence with this one but I do want to like it.
Well I have til January so we'll see.

triggax writes:
on June 22nd, 2010 at 2:53:45 PM

This looks really good.. I like Rogen, I think he's consistently funny in most things.. He had a couple movies lately that were questionable but this looks like a lot of fun...

Now I'd like to go off on a bit of a tangent here.. Expressing my distaste for one of the Headlines here on WP.. Angelina Jolie Playing Cleopatra Angers Black Community. I didn't even bother commenting in that particular thread because the title pissed me off so much.. so basically with what Sac had said.. One black guy says it's discouraging that a white woman was cast to play a slightly colored person? wtf... anyways.. THAT my friend is racist... throwing words around like n*gger and chink and stupid sh*t like that.. without being hateful isn't racist.. but taking a race of people and making them a VISIBLE minority with a headline like that based on one mans opinion is absolute bullsh*t.. So if Kal Penn came out and said he didn't like that decision.. would there be a headline that read Brown People Angered By Cleopatra Casting....? No... Because he's not "brown" hes just a person... just one person... if he got 1000 brown people to say that it was a bad casting choice and that theyre angry.. then it becomes a community decision of a minority group... But singling one person out as a minority, in my opinion is more racist than calling him/her a n*gger... really.. because you're segregating that person from the rest of us.. not as an individual but as a colored person... so f*ck you for that f*cking headline d*ck head..
Now back to my original thoughts on this... If that's the case and that's how you white people still feel, that one of us speaks for all of us because we're a minority, then, as a theater owner and perhaps a bit of an official in this apparent "black community" I believe that because I've said that I think this movie is probably gonna be awesome... Based on that cleopatra headline... this should make news... this should make movie news on this website... the headline should read.


See where im coming from...

Trailer Trash said, This looks better than I thought... So is that headline worthy in the sense that it would read like this,

White Community think Green Hornet Looks Better Than They Thought

You might think im crazy but I think thats crap.

An accurate headline about the collective distaste of a community would be:

... why was it again that so many of you were pleased after seeing this trailer?
I'm guessing low expectations led to a positive surprise, but still, this movie looks really weak.

Admittedly the trailer wasn't the most amazing thing in the world and I probably won't end up seeing this in theaters, but I do have some hopes for it consider Michael Gondry is directing, and his skills are part of what made 'Eternal Sunshine' so great, and Christoph Waltz who gave the best acting performance of last year.

But there are a number of things working against it:

Dates have been pushed back numerous times
Cameron Diaz
A superhero not a lot of people are familiar or enamored with
Cameron Diaz
Seth Rogen, even with his admirable weight loss, isn't 100% believable in the superhero role

Did I mention Cameron Diaz?

@ velocityknown:

Make no mistake about what you said, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" was an incredible movie mostly because of two things, an amazing and surprising script (mostly due to Kaufman), and Jim Carrey's brilliant dramatic performance, which shocked most audiences that were used to seeing him doing physical comedy.
In a way, that movie was Gondry's baby, since he went to great lengths to put together the film, but he was fueled by Kaufman's brilliant work.
He surrounded himself with the right people and that paid off.
It's one of my favorite movies of all times.

From what I've seen so far, "Green Hornet" has nothing to do with what was done with "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".
It looks like a movie for kids, one that any director could have helmed.
Brett Ratner could have done this crap.

Gondry did this movie because of the fact that, apparently, he was a fan of the original show and pop culture in general and, more importantly, because he has a contract with Columbia Pictures to direct a certain number of movies within 10 years and this fitted his timeline just perfectly.

Don't count on seeing any of the elements that made "ESOTSM" the mesmerizing movie it was.
That was a work of art. This one... not so much.

I do understand where you're coming from, though. The guy was a good surprise before, maybe he still has a few tricks up his sleeve, right? That's understandable, just not in this case.

I highly doubt Gondry saw this as a passion project. More like a paycheck, probably.

On a different note:

Watching Jay Chou's consistent bullet time pansy fight scenes makes me miss Bruce Lee's hardcore action.
velocityknown writes:
on June 22nd, 2010 at 6:27:28 PM


Good points, lots of things contributed to it being an excellent film but some of those shots and the cuts were just amazing and changed the scenes in incredible ways.

Don't know how well you remember it but the scene when Carrey walks out of the bookstore after seeing Winslet with Elijah Wood and she doesn't remember him as the lights go out and he sits down on the stairs telling the story to his friends; That and the scene where they're trying to think of place to hide Clementine and it starts to rain in the living room, while it cuts back and forth between that and his childhood, both of those moments were made even more breathtaking by Gondry's ability to craft those scenes.

No doubt though that Gondry surrounded him with the best possible people to make a movie with.

Also he directed a pretty amazing music video/episode of Flight of the Conchords, if you have time, please watch it here:


You're probably right that this is more of paycheck than anything for Gondry and as you mentioned Brett Ratner could've easily directed this, but the fact that Gondry is at the helm moderately raises my already low expectations.

Yet another movie pushing the concept that any dumbass douchebag could be a hero, just if he could afford a lot of cool gadgets. Looking at the first part of the trailer it's pretty obvious that the first time Seth's character got punched in the face, his nose broken, and a couple of teeth knocked out he'd be saying "f*ck this sh*t, back to being a dumbass drunk guy."

And as for the last bit with the street light camera. Are the people that made this film actually dumb enough to think that any pictures taken by one of those cameras are stored in the actually camera?

Yeah sure they are, haven't you noticed the cops in your town going around from street light to street light collecting all the stored photos?

@Trig: Thanks for backing me up on the Cleopatra post my friend. Good to have you back. Don't let a few bad reviews from Putzman get to you. (Franco still licks balls :)

On topic: I didn't expect much from this, but it looks promising. Two really big problems though:

1. Fight sequences look very questionable. Following Bruce Lee is no easy task, but this Kato looks like he barely knows Kung Fu. Stephen Chow would have been much better in the role.

2. The 3D implications means no R rating which might spell disaster for a Seth Rogen film. Nobody wants to see a toned down Rogen performance. Funny People, Observe and Report, and Zach and Miri is about as serious as I ever want him to ever get. He's great at what he does, why change him? Losing the weed, the colorful language, and THE WEED is a bad move for his fanbase and his career. Going the 3D-PG superhero route (if that's how it turns out) amounts to completely selling out imo. I'm willing to give Rogen the benefit of the doubt but only for so long.

For the record my comments on the Jolie/Cleopatra article had little to do with one single solitary columnist having an opinion that was narrow minded. Columnist say stupid sh*t all the time, black or white. What I was commenting on were the hundreds and hundreds of comments made on the CNN coverage of that article by people that wholeheartedly agreed with the opinion that he had, even in the face of the fact that their assumption was completely historically incorrect. A person who is faced with the fact that they are wrong over a thousands times and still cannot comprehend it is a person that is too damned focused on their own blind ignorance.

Stupidity and ignorance are two things that annoy and irritate me.

I could really give a damned what color you are, but it certainly shouldn't be used as an excuse for either one.
