First Look: The Green Hornet's Black Beauty


On Tuesday, folks milling around Atlantic Station spied a shiny black monster of a car sporting kelly green headlights and a cache of weapons on his hood and between the front grill. A closer examination of the vehicle reveals the signature logo of the everyman hero of the '60s - The Green Hornet.

Unless you've been living in a (bat) cave, The Green Hornet, is the next hero film to hit the theaters. Based off the original series, The Green Hornet chronicles the crime-fighting adventures of a dashing newspaper publisher Britt Reit (Seth Rogen) as he dons his alter ego, the Green Hornet alongside his martial arts expert sidekick, Kato (Jay Chou). The dynamic duo uses wit, a wealth of resources and Kato's kick-butt fighting skills along with their custom muscle car: The Black Beauty to bring the bad guys to justice

The Black Beauty, a customized 1965 Chrysler Imperial sports an impressive arsenal of weapons including two 30-caliber machines guns mounted on the hood, a flame thrower and two shotguns with bean bags rounds in its grill and eight sidewinder missiles mounted within the front fender and four additional missiles mounted in the rear fender. In the production of the film the studio created 29 versions of the vehicle, to handle all high speed chases featured in the film.

The car visit is part of a nation-wide promotional tour from Columbia Pictures and Hardee's restaurants. The Green Hornet arrives in theaters on January 14, 2011.
