And the auteurs keep trying

OUT NOW! THE GREEN HORNET promises masks, witty banter and super-toys. Not sure about insects.

The latest in a long line of superhero films made by respected, creative directors (think Christopher Nolan’s Batman series or Ang Lee’s underappreciated Hulk), The Green Hornet promises to combine Michel Gondry’s signature playfulness with the latest in superhero gadgetry and banter (here loaded with the kind of double entendre we’ve come to love from Iron Man) between a slimmed-down Rogen’s superhero and his assistant Kato.

THE GREEN HORNET | Directed by Michel Gondry (USA 2011) with Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz. Opens January 13.
