The Green Hornet is one of those movies that one moment looks really bad then the next moment something reassuring comes along. For me, the first official trailer for the film was a case of the latter and for the last few weeks I've been confident that director Michael Gondry has delivered a fun version of The Green Hornet worth seeing.
Now we have a new international trailer for The Green Hornet for you to check out and while it is quite similar to the first trailer, it does showcase some new footage. Before we get to the trailer, here's a reminder of the general plot of the film:
By day, Britt Reid is a millionaire publisher and popular media figure, but by night, Reid assumes the identity of fearless crime fighter The Green Hornet and teams with his trusted sidekick, Kato, to keep the streets safe for average citizens.

Despite all it has going against it - the horrible January release date; the skepticism over Seth Rogen playing the Hornet; Stephen Chow dropping out; the 3D conversion enhancement - I still think The Green Hornet looks pretty good.
A couple of things I'm particularly excited about is Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) playing the villain (after Nicolas Cage passed on the role) and Michael Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) directing it. Perhaps the bad will outweigh the good in the end but fingers crossed that won't happen here.
What do you think of the latest trailer for The Green Hornet? Will this one be a winner or a disaster?
The Green Hornet stars Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz and Cameron Diaz. It hits theaters on January 14th, 2011.
