For those of you who were scratching your heads when Seth Rogen got cast as a superhero, now is your chance to see the actor in action in this just released trailer for The Green Hornet (not to be confused with The Green Lantern). Rogen plays Britt Reid, the spoiled son of a publishing tycoon, who decides to clean up his act after his father dies. His goal: to do something productive with his life by fighting bad guys with his sidekick, Kato (Jay Chou).
We saw sneak peek photos from the film already, but now that I've seen this preview it all makes sense — Rogen is still playing his usual, lovable schlub, instead this time he's wearing a mask! And he's trim! The trailer has its requisite explosions, fast cars, and fight scenes, but sometimes it just kind of feels like you dropped Ben Stone in the middle of an action movie. More so, I'm not seeing any sign of director Michel Gondry's style here (and blink and you'll miss Cameron Diaz). Give it a look, and tell me your take when you read more.
