Michel Gondry

The Green Hornet hasn’t been treated all too kindly on the interwebs for a while now. Ever since the announcement of Seth Rogen starring in the film, overly sensitive message board regulars have been crying foul. There’s been less-than-flattering rumors regarding the film, most of which were untrue, but what does writer Evan Goldberg think of this? Well, he doesn’t spend a whole lot of time online, but he recognizes and knows the unfair buzz. Goldberg even name dropped an IMDB message board regular who he spent a lot of time antagonizing. Now that the film is out, perhaps those skeptics will give the film a fair shake. The one thing about The Green Hornet that most will take notice to is how much Goldberg and Rogen did the opposite of standard superhero tropes. The lead, Britt Reid, isn’t your usual superhero and is a completely dislikable moron. The love interest isn’t even a love interest. The villain is more sympathetic than the idiotic hero. Britt Reid makes Tony Stark seem like a total boy scout in comparison. Rogen and Goldberg, without a doubt, have created one of the most unconventional and (lovably) unlikable superhero leads ever to grace the screen.

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr dresses up in a trench coat and hat, wears a mask and runs around the streets of his fair city with his strong and agile Asian manservant. The plan: When arrested, tell the police he is trying to emulate the crime-fighting career of the Green Hornet. If he can get away with that, he plans on tracking down two doughy but funny guys who are having sexual relations with super-hot Hollywood type ladies and try to steal their girlfriends away. Or, he just might sit on the couch and watch movies after telling you what he thinks of The Green Hornet and The Dilemma.

What is Movie News After Dark? This is a question that I am almost never asked, but I will answer it for you anyway. Movie News After Dark is FSR’s newest late-night secretion, a column dedicated to all of the news stories that slip past our daytime editorial staff and make it into my curiously chubby RSS ‘flagged’ box. It will (but is not guaranteed to) include relevant movie news, links to insightful commentary and other film-related shenanigans. I may also throw in a link to something TV-related here or there. It will also serve as my place of record for being both charming and sharp-witted, but most likely I will be neither of the two. I write this shit late at night, what do you expect?

Since Halloween is over, people are already decorating for Christmas because Thanksgiving never got around to choosing official colors. To get in that holiday spirit, we’ve got a look at two new movie posters that are painting the town green and red. The first is for Kevin Smith’s long-promised horror film about religious zealots, Red State. The other is for the Seth Rogen-starring adaptation of the classic television show, Green Hornet. Deck the halls. It’s November.

The Green Hornet isn’t getting the buzz it deserves. It’s a Michel Gondry superhero film – how does that not draw excitement? Or how about the fact it’s written by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen? They both share writing credits for Pineapple Express and Superbad which are, arguably, the best Apatow produced features. It’s an odd combination for sure, but at least it sounds and looks different than most superhero films currently in the pipeline. While the first trailer wasn’t the show stopper it should have been, it shouldn’t tamper one’s excitement. The one thing I really wanted to know, though: how much of a Michel Gondry film will this be? That’s one of the many things I asked Golberg when I sat down with him last week at Comic-Con.

Green Hornet

There’s a title I didn’t think I would ever write. But it’s true — the new trailer for The Green Hornet is upon us, and Seth Rogen actually appears to kick some ass. A resident stoner funnyman, Rogen was an interesting choice for the film’s hero, but once again he and writing partner Evan Goldberg appear to have delivered something fun. And unexpectedly, there also appears to be some wicked action in it.

The first images of Seth Rogen and Jay Chou in The Green Hornet have appeared online. And with them come the promise of a little bit of action and a lot less (literally) Seth Rogen. They also mean that a trailer will not be far behind, as the marketing machine is gearing up.

One of the things that I like most about this year’s overall South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival line-up is the diversity. And if there’s one thing you’ll see in this year’s panel and shorts lineups, it is just that. Diversity.

Sometime within the next fifteen years, it’s possible that Seth Rogen may or may not embark on a road trip with Barbara Streisand and someone will film it. Yes, this is the highest level of accuracy and detail we can give you, but admit that you’re intrigued.

Paris, je t’aime and the upcoming New York, I Love You are two examples of anthology films, but nestled in between them is the new film, Tokyo! Two French directors and one Korean take turns telling stories that attempt to explain if the city defines it’s people or if the people define the city.
