The first official trailer for The Green Hornet, based on the radio and television character of the same name, has been released.
The movie, slated to open January 14, 2011, stars Seth Rogen as Brit Reid, a publisher by day and masked crime fighter by night. Along with his sidekick Kato, played by Jay Chou, the two drive around in their souped-up 1966 Chrysler Imperial dubbed the Black Beauty, which the stars unveiled at the 2009 Comic-Con.
In the preview, we learn why Reid goes from a partying son of a media mogul to a superhero who poses as a villain in order to get closer to the bad guys.
The film also stars Cameron Diaz as Reid's new secretary Lenore "Casey" Case and Christoph Waltz as the duo's nemesis, Benjamin Chudnofsky.
