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.
Disney brought a little taste of Christmas to Atlanta this morning as Disney's A Christmas Carol Train Tour rolled into town. The seven car train features a museum, gallery and interactive, multimedia experiences.
Passengers on the tour saw personal belongings from Charles Dickens on loan from the Dicken's Museum in London, original props and models used in the film, featurettes explaining the technology behind the CGI feature film and an interactive photo booth where passengers' images were morphed into characters from the movie. Outside the train, Disney set up a 25-foot 3D movie theater including snow to watch 10 minutes of scenes from the film.
The Christmas Carol train has been traveling across the country since Memorial Day weekend. The tour started in Los Angeles, CA and will end in a few weeks in New York City, NY. You can find out more about the train tour and its upcoming scheduled stops on the tour's website.
