Columbia Pictures has just released new teaser posters for three of its upcoming movies. For comic book movie fans, there's a new poster for director Michel Gondry's (Be Kind Rewind) The Green Hornet adaptation. Unlike the two previous teaser posters, which heavily featured the dynamic duo's pimped-out battle wagon, "Black Beauty," this poster brings the Green Hornet (Seth Rogen) and Kato (Jay Chou) to the fore. Based on the classic masked crimefighter from the golden age of radio serials, The Green Hornet was written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg and also stars Cameron Diaz, Edward Furlong, Edward James Olmos, Tom Wilkinson, and Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz. It opens January 14, 2011.
Sci-fi movie fans are treated to a new poster for director Jonathan Liebesman's (The Killing Room) highly anticipated new movie, Battle: Los Angeles. Inspired by the mysterious 1942 "attack" on Los Angeles that resulted in an hour-long anti-aircraft artillery bombardment over the city that came to be known as "The Battle of Los Angeles," the movie follows a platoon of U.S. Marines as they attempt to fend off an alien invasion of the City of Angels. The movie stars Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena, and Bridget Moynahan and is set to open March 11, 2011.
And, for the kid in all of us, a new poster for The Smurfs, the big-screen 3-D adaptation of the popular '80s cartoon that blends live-action and CG animation. The screenplay was written by J. David Stem, David N. Weiss, Jay Scherick, and David Ronn and follows the Smurfs as they inadvertently travel through time and space to end up in New York City after attempting to escape from an attack on their village by the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) and his Smurf-craving cat, Azrael.
The Smurfs are voiced by an all-star cast that includes Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf, Anthon Yelchin as Clumsy Smurf, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf, Alan Cumming as Gutsy Smurf, Fred Armisen as Brainy Smurf, Paul "Pee Wee" Reubens as Jokey Smurf, and Katy Perry as Smurfette, among others. Neal Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays also star as a human couple who discover the Smurfs in Central Park and try to help them get back home. Raja Gosnell directed the movie, which opens August 3, 2011.
