The Green Hornet Preview/Synopsis

January 14th

Directed by Michel Gondry ( Eternal Sunshine Of A Spotless Mind ) Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz, Cameron Diaz, Tom Wilkinson, Edward James Olmos, Edward Furlong. Written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, cinematography by Oscar nominee John Schwartzman ( Seabiscuit ) editing by Michael Tronick ( Scent Of A Woman ) original score by multiple Oscar nominee James Newton Howard ( Defiance, Michael Clayton )

Premise: Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), the son of wealthy newspaper publisher James Reid (Tom Wilkinson), is a ne'er do well playboy who inherits a media empire after his father dies. One day, he meets an employee named Kato (Jay Chou), who is more than he appears. After realizing how he and Kato waste their abilities, Britt decides that the two should become crimefighters, taking on the identity of the Green Hornet. With the help of his new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), Britt discovers that Russian criminal Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz) controls the city's criminal underworld. Meanwhile, Chudonfsky, paranoid that he is losing his edge as a crime boss, has united all of the gangs of the city and seeks the Green Hornet, believing him to be a direct threat to his elaborate grand plan.

Rated PG-13 for sequences of violent action, language, sensuality and drug content.

Oscar chances ? Not in any main categories, you can bet on that. But it may get visual effects and sound design attention.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
