One of the most anticipated movies of the new year, The Green Hornet is set to kick off 2011 with a blend of adventure and director Michel Gondry’s habitual touch of eccentricity, if the various artworks are anything to go by.
Remember when Collider gave you an exclusive sneak peek of The Green Hornet’s character posters back in November? They have now officially debuted on Korean billboards, while the Spanish and French posters resemble the US ones. Hit the jump to take a look.
For fans, the international and character posters are sure to become a collector’s item. The saturated colors give them a comic feel and their poses are rather telling. While Seth Rogen’s Britt Reid and his sidekick Kato, played by Taiwanese star Jay Chou, portray the classic superhero dynamic, their arch-enemy Benjamin Chudnofsky, portrayed by the ever-eclectic Christoph Waltz, looks over his shoulder, his pointy beard reminding me of Satan’s tail; and Cameron Diaz as Britt’s secretary Lenore Case looks less uptight than Pepper Potts with just the right hint of sexiness.
I noticed the posters gracing the billboards along the corridors of the Parisian subway this morning. The movie will hit French theaters on January 12, two days before its US release (well, director Michel Gondry is French) and will premiere in Paris on January 4. The main French poster, featuring all four main characters, reads: “To break the law so as to better defend it.”
And if you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, here’s a full recap, including set visits, interviews and a featurette.
Clooney joins Bullock in 'Gravity'
George Clooney has joined Sandra Bullock in the cast of Alfonso Cuaron's science fiction drama Gravity, reports Deadline.
The project revolves around a female astronaut (Sandra Bullock) trying to make it to Earth after a disaster in space. Clooney will play her colleague.
Clooney will replace Robert Downey Jr. as the leader of a space station that gets decimated by debris from an exploded asteroid. Clooney and Bullock's characters are the sole survivors of the mission and must find a way to return home.
The initial pairing for the Alfonso Cuaron-directed project was to have been Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr. Then came a protracted series of reversals that saw Jolie leave and come back, while actresses Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman were involved with the movie to varying degrees, all within the last eight months.
Downey stuck with the project throughout the various casting changes but in mid-November, just as things looked set with Bullock, he bailed.
Gravity will begin production next April or May after Bullock has completed Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close and Clooney finds time away from his next directorial effort The Ides Of March.
