Michel Gondry has announced plans that he is adapting Philip K. Dick’s Ubik. I’m assuming the announcement was made via a yarn megaphone while Gondry wore plaster beehives as shoes.
The Green Hornet is the number 1 movie this weekend, but that doesn’t mean that everyone is satisfied.
Here’s a Masters course in the aesthetics of film. And why Stephen Chow asks “Why?” so much.
The Green Hornet is as good as any Green Hornet movie could probably be, which is to say he’s not a very interesting superhero.
DIRECTOR: Michel Gondry CAST: Seth Rogen; Jay Chou; Cameron Diaz; Christoph Waltz; Edward Furlong; Tom Wilkinson SYNOPSIS: By night, debonair newspaper publisher Britt Reid fights crime as a masked superhero…
The new theatrical trailer for The Green Hornet has a lot going for it. It’s got lots of guns, cool cars, some hot chicks, and even a few jokes thrown in for good measure. But what most impressed me about the trailer was the “Kato Vision.”
Though the trailer isn't set to premiere until tonight, we've got a duo of official photos from Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet. The photos show a slimmed-down Seth Rogen as the Hornet and Jay Chou's Kato in action. In the first, we see the boys running away from a massive explosion in full action hero mode. In the second, we see Kato with his gun trained at someone in what looks like a Benihana restaurant. A word to the wise, you throw broccoli at Jay Chou's face, you risk losing your face.What's missing is Gondry's trademark loopy art direction. I don't see yarn or cardboard in either of these. There's not even any macaroni art. Somebody had better swede this movie immediately.SEE SETH ROGEN: ACTION STAR AFTER THE JUMP…
