A new International Trailer For Michael Gondry‘s THE GREEN HORNET has surfaced online. Looking at the information I can see it looks like the trailer is the Australian one and from what Ive seen from the video marketing Jay Chou is the real star here simply down to his martial arts ability. I’m not a massive fan of the slow motion style which Swordfish made popular over 10 years ago but when your asked to step into the shoes of the Martial arts legend that is Bruce Lee its a mighty task and it looks like Chou has done well. Im not a fan of Seth Rogen but I know from the net many see him as the stand out. Im not the biggest supporter of movies becoming more like comedies as this seems to be leaning against because of Rogen, its okay to have some thrown but going virtually all out makes it more a parody.
Britt Reid is the son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene — until his father mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato, they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. But in order to do this, they decide to become criminals themselves — protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.
