New International Green Hornet Trailer
Rogen kicks some butt… Internationally

07 July 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb  

submit to reddit

We’ve reported on the previous American version of the Green Hornet trailer before and our opinion on it was… mixed, to say the least.

Seth Rogen is a very watchable actor, and the new Kato, Taiwanese musician Jay Chou, seems to be pretty nifty on his feet (if not as charismatic as the original TV Kato, the legend that was, and is, Bruce Lee), but it didn’t quite seem to hold together that well.

We’re still keen to see how it develops however, as there’s a decent chance just it might work on the big screen, what with it still being in production and all, and Rogen’s previous good form.

To that end, here’s the latest look at the world of The Green Hornet in the form of the international trailer, which is very similar to the previous one, admittedly, but with a little bit more of Rogen high-kicking baddos rather than leaving Kato to do all the dirty work.

Exited? Not Excited? Want to get your own supercar with miniguns in it? Let us know. In the meantime, we're going to file this one under “Hmm…” before it comes out in January 14, 2011.

My main problem with this is that it doesn't look like a Michel Gondry film. He's such a visionary director and this seems to have taken all his individuality away. Still, it looks pretty entertaining...no masterpiece though, but really, who was expecting one. More

I think this movie has enough appeal I would go see it. More

Title confusion...
Why is this called the Green Hornet when so much of the action/charisma seems to fall on Kato's shoulders? Not that I'm complaining, because the less air time for Seth 'toilet humour' Rogen the better, but why the hell is the Green Hornet not at all bad ass? Why has Kato allowed himself to be saddled with this reasonably inept enthusiast? HOW WILL THIS BE A BLOCKBUSTER IF THE TITLE CHARACTER CAN NEITHER BLOCK A PUNCH NOR BUST A MOVE? More

I've Never Seen the Show...
...so I have no real knowledge of what its "supposed" to be like. I think it looks pretty damn cool. However, as an American, I'm more easily impressed by these things... More

What's all the moaning about? This looks great. You people. More

Um
At least Kato looks like fun... for the most part... Fingers crossed though- everyone involved is plenty cool enough! And the talent is there, it is just the sparkle that seems missing, and that could just be the fault of a lame trailer dude More

Meh
Looks OK. Buddy pairing seems fun. Kato seems to be the funnier. Not one I can't wait for. More
