New Preview Clips and TV Spots from The Green Hornet
12.28.10 by BJSprecher
Less than a week after Columbia Pictures unleashed a ton of new promotional materials for director Michel Gondry's upcoming The Green Hornet adaptation, two new preview clips from the movie have been released online and three new TV spots have hit the airwaves.
Based on the classic masked crimefighter created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker that first appeared in a radio serial in the 1930s, The Green Hornet stars Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, a lackadaisical party boy who inherits his father's (Tom Wilkinson) publishing empire and decides to use his fortune to fight crime. With the help of skilled martial artist and weapons expert Kato (Jay Chou) and his resourceful assistant, Lenore (Cameron Diaz), the Green Hornet sets his sights on the city's top crime figure, Benjamin Chudnofsky (Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz), who aims to unite the city's criminal element into a supermafia.
In the first new clip, we see Reid and Kato deciding to team up to fight crime and putting together their badass fighting machine, the "Black Beauty."
In the second new clip, Reid and Kato reveal to Lenore they are the masked men the police are looking for, but explain they are actually fighting crime, not perpetrating it as they would have everyone believe.
And, here are the three new TV spots that have recently aired, each containing snippets of never-before-seen footage from the movie.
The Green Hornet was written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Pineapple Express). Edward Furlong, Edward James Olmos and David Harbour also star.
