Explosive Set Footage in New Green Hornet Video, Plus Two New Still Images
06.28.10 by BJSprecher
Before the first trailer for director Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet, there was scant little to report about the movie beyond the casting setbacks, release delays and set troubles.
Since the trailer's release, Sony has been churning out promotional materials, and Gondry and title star, Seth Rogen, have come out in defense of the tone of the movie and the decision to go 3-D. Now, a new promo video from Splash has appeared online with behind-the-scenes footage.
Sony has released two new still images that reveal the heroes' secret weapon and their arch-enemy. In the first of two images, the Green Hornet (Rogen) and his partner in heroics, Kato (Jay Chou), test out the twin guns mounted to the engine of their crimefighting car, The Black Beauty. In the second still, we get our first glimpse at the movie's antagonist, Benjamin Chudnofsky, played by Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz, a role that originally went to Nicolas Cage.
The Green Hornet was written by Rogen and his frequent collaborator, Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express), and also stars Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, and Tom Wilkinson.
