The Green Hornet

STARRING Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz
WRITTEN BY Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg
DIRECTED BY Michel Gondry

The year’s first big franchise flick features Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, a fun-loving playboy who devotes his life to crime-fighting after his media mogul father dies. By his side is Kato (Jay Chou), a martial arts expert who doubles as a valet. Don’t expect the film to be a pure comedy, even though its screenplay was penned by the minds behind Superbad and Pineapple Express: ”It’s not a spoof. We take the genre seriously,” quirky director Michel Gondry tells EW. ”We are not just superslick like some other superhero movies. We have our own style.”
