With decidedly lukewarm responses to the trailer, and bad buzz building about the project, Sony have been playing things pretty quietly on “The Green Hornet” front. But with the film’s release now only three months away, it looks like the marketing campaign is gearing up again, with the debut of a teaser poster for the film.
It’s trying to use the iconic Black Beauty car and an updated version of the symbol, sidelining stars Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, but we’re just not sure that either mean anything to anyone these days. But at least Rogen looks like a more convincing action hero from above, we suppose. And is Cameron Diaz actually in this film? We’re not sure we’ve seen more than a couple of frames with her present.
Our man at the New York Comic Con was a little underwhelmed by the footage shown there, but despite that, and the generally lackluster trailers, we’re still holding out some hope: any project with a script by Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Superbad“), and directed by Michel Gondry can’t be counted out just yet. The film hits, in glorious Kato-vision (or as you might know it, 3D), on January 14th, 2011. [Empire]
