The Green Hornet

(2011)

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son and heir to Los Angeles' largest newspaper fortune, is a rich, spoiled playboy who has been happy to maintain a direction-less existence. When his father James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, Britt meets an impressive and resourceful company employee, Kato (Jay Chou). They realize that they have the resources to do something worthwhile with their lives and finally step out of James Reid's shadow. Kato builds the ultimate weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with every weapon and gadget imaginable and Britt decides that in order to be heroes, they will pose as villains. With the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). He has united all the gangs under his power, and he quickly sees that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to the prosperous criminal underworld he controls. Directed by Michel Gondry.

To be released in 2D, 3D, and 3D IMAX.

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: Audiences Fall in Love with ‘No Strings Attached’

Two new films, The Green Hornet, and The Dilemma, entered the box office race last week at number one and number two, respectively. Unfortunately, with the new romantic comedy, No Strings Attached starring Natalie Portman, and Ashton Kutcher, opening this weekend, their reign over the box office has been cut short.

Debuting at number one this week is the new romantic comedy from director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters), called No Strings Attached. The film features an all-star cast that includes Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Ashton Kutcher (Killers), Lake Bell (What Happens in Vegas), Cary Elwes (Saw 3D), and Oscar winner Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda). The film made $6,726 on each of its 3,018 screens for an opening weekend total of $20.3 million. Considering that the movie only cost $25 million to make, it came very close to earning back its entire production budget in its opening weekend.
