‘The Green Hornet’s’ Black Beauty to take over Petersen Automotive Museum

HollywoodNews.com: In anticipation of the January 14, 2011 release of the 3D action comedy “The Green Hornet,” starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, and Cameron Diaz, the vigilante hero’s automotive co-star Black Beauty is now taking on Los Angeles in a unique way, perched atop the world-famous Petersen Automotive Museum’s elevated outdoor display. The 58,000 daily commuters travelling through L.A.’s third-busiest intersection at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue will be greeted by the souped-up and armed-to-the-grill Chrysler Imperial.

The highly customized Black Beauty – complete with machine guns, rocket launchers, and every other weapon the Green Hornet needs to take on the bad guys – is only the third vehicle to grace the 30-foot-high platform in the Museum’s 16-year history. Its predecessors were the AM/PM Boss monster truck and followed by a 2000 NASCAR Dodge Intrepid which became the calling cards on the west side of the Petersen during their respective tenures.

Black Beauty will be displayed outdoors through the end of February and will tease the new The Green Hornet exhibit, which will fill the Hollywood Gallery at the Petersen Automotive Museum. Visitors to the new exhibit can learn what it really takes for a car to be the star as it features six Black Beauties created to appear in the movie, from a beautifully polished stock Imperial to process bodies, stunt cars, a “hero car,” movie props, and more. The rest of the exhibit will be dressed as Britt Reid’s (AKA The Green Hornet’s) garage, featuring classic and exotic automobiles as seen in the movie. Also on display will be one of the two Black Beauties from the 1960s television series. The Green Hornet exhibit will also be open through the end of February.

In the 3D action-comedy The Green Hornet, Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene – until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. To get close to the criminals, they come up with the perfect cover: they’ll pose as criminals themselves. Protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets. Using all his ingenuity and skill, Kato builds the ultimate in advanced retro weaponry, Black Beauty, an indestructible car equal parts firepower and horsepower. Rolling in a mobile fortress on wheels and striking the bad guys with Kato’s clever gadgets, The Green Hornet and Kato quickly start making a name for themselves, and with the help of Britt’s new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they begin hunting down the man who controls LA’s gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to swat down The Green Hornet once and for all. The film is directed by Michel Gondry. The screenplay is by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, based upon “The Green Hornet” radio series created by George W. Trendle. The producer is Neal H. Moritz.
