Stills From The Green Hornet Film

Two new shots from the 2011 film.


Straight from Yahoo Movies comes a couple of stills from the upcoming Green Hornet film. Michel Gondry, who previously directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Be Kind Rewind, will be directing this film which stars Seth Rogan as the Green Hornet and Taiwanese actor Jay Chou as Kato. 
 
The movie is set to come out in January of 2011 in IMAX 3D, regular 3D, and normal 2D. From the looks of it on the right, it could be action packed. The outfits look dead on, especially when comparing it to Dynamite's current book, written by Kevin Smith, except in his story, Kato is a woman.  
== TEASER ==
It's nice to pulp heroes like the Green Hornet,  The Phantom, and the Spirit (even though the film may not have done it justice) get back into the limelight. These were all characters that really helped make comic books what they are today. And at least costume-wise, they look dead on. Whether or not this film will be any good is obviously still up in the air. The film was written by Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg who both did Pineapple Express and Superbad together, so are we supposed to expect a comedy, or can they pull this off as a serious film?
 
What do you guys think? Do the stills look good? Will this be a good film?

I really still have faith for this because it could be a potential good action flick. There is a preview for the film on a tonight show right? Anyway it looks good so far according to these clips I guess.

Kevin Smith wanted to make Kato into a chick? Nice, but... no comment. Seth Rogen as Green Hornet, I can totally get behind that.

It's been a while since there has been any news come out about this movie. Before, when in filming, they were giving constant updates. It all stopped after a while.
 
I almost kind of predict this movie is going to be a superhero version of Pineapple Express.

Seth Rogen actually looks pretty legit as Green Hornet. I may check this out when it comes out

Wow! Seth Rogan looks sooo rugged and hot here. (: he certainly has lost weight!

Not crazy about Rogen as The Hornet, but if it's not a campy, Batman-from-the-60s-like parody of the GH mythos, I'll be ok with it.  
 
Too bad Mr. Smith's script didn't get the chance... That Dynamite book he's writting is too many kinds of awesome! One fine piece of work. The Only Green Hornet book (of the dozen that are out there) worthy of reading. I'm loving every second of it!

I think this movie might be pretty good, but my question is what is the Green Hornet and Kato doing in the desert?

good to see Rogan lost some f'n weight for this role. 
 
Hope this doesn't turn out like Hex

this is one of the movies im looking forward to this year. But i was skeptical when i first heard Seth Rogans name attached to the film but we'll see what happens

Man why does everyone think this is going to suck. I mean it's not like seth rogen is fat in this movie, he looks pretty good and I think this movie could be awesome. All the stills I have seen I have been really surprised by and happy with.

Seth Rogan as The Green Hornet   is not that far of out there no more Michale Keaton  playing Batman so I'm kind of  looking forward to it .

I want to see it

Can't wait to see this movie!

Seth Rogen just doesnt have the chops to play this role. Sorry but it will be another useless action comedy that is very light on the comedy and dull on the action.  Really is there any need for this to be in 3D? The studio has already buried this film in January so that should tell you what they think of it.

Seth Rogen? So he is writing this movie, I know he is an actor but I didn't know he writes movies. I'm still going to see this movie.

Easy stomach, don't turn over.  Easy does it.  Still not getting on the Seth Rogen fail boat.
