The Green Hornet (Michele Gondry, Seth Rogen) TRAILER

Looks like it could be good. I have to wonder how much influence/vision Gondry got with everything with this. Also it appears Rogen co-wrote the screenplay..that raises a big question mark. Pineapple Express was okay, but became dumbed-down and "cartoony" as Richard Roeper would say.

Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz, BSG/Miami Vice's Edward James Olmos and T2's Edward Furlong are also in the cast among others. I'm hoping this will be more along the lines of Iron Man than The Dark Knight (or how many other high-budget, mediocre scripted Super Hero movies over the last decade).

But Gondry remains one of my favorite directors, I after the disappointing Be Kind Rewind, he'll bounce back with this.
