VIDEO: Green Hornet official trailer starring Seth Rogen

The first official trailer for Seth Rogen’s upcoming comic book turned movie The Green Hornet has been unleashed.  The movie isn’t set for release until 2011 but here is a first taste of the action:

There has been much grumbling among the devoted fan-base of the Green Hornet franchise in regards to the selection of Seth Rogen to play lead.  From trailer it does appear to be the same Seth Rogen audiences are familiar with: a dumbfounded “is this happening to me” delivery along with college-brand lines and reactions.  The action shots look great and Black Beauty (the car) looks really cool, but otherwise it’s hard to get a read whether or not The Green Hornet will be a kitschy charmer or laughable flop.

The Green Hornet is directed by Michael Gondry (Be Kind Rewind, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and stars (in addition to Rogen) Cameron Diaz, Edward Furlong, Edward James Olmos, and Tom Wilkinson.
