Seth Rogen in “Green Hornet,” Matthew McConaughey in a “Lincoln” – Trailer Park
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Welcome back to the Trailer Park, where we regularly update links to the latest teasers making their way online.
I’m having a tough time figuring out why Michel Gondry’s “The Green Hornet” is a January release. Anyone who plays even the slightest bit of attention to movie-release schedules knows January’s a dumping ground. Yet by the looks of this new “Green Hornet” trailer, the film could be quite a lot of fun. Seth Rogen plays a spoiled rich kid who inherits his father’s media empire – and his superhero-worthy gadgets – so he decides to wage war on crime. Jay Chou is on board a Cato, Oscar winner Christoph Waltz plays the bad guy, and Cameron Diaz adds eye candy as the love interest. “Green Hornet” hits theaters on Jan. 14.
And then there’s Matthew McConaughey, showing up in something that isn’t a watered-down romantic comedy (so bonus points for that, right off the bat). “The Lincoln Lawyer” finds a smooth-talking attorney agreeing to defend a man (Ryan Phillippe) who claims he’s innocent of a serious crime. It’s based on a Michael Connelly novel, and has a great supporting cast, from Marisa Tomei to William H. Macy. View the trailer below. It’s out on March 18.
Finally, there’s the British crime thriller “Brighton Rock,” based on the classic Graeme Green novel. It looks like a Guy Ritchie mystery, set in the 1960s. But it has a ton of style, and attitude to match. Watch it below.
