The DVD is coming out May 3.
I would love for the film to make the crawl to $100m US domestic before that happens. 2011 is still without a $100m film, be nice for TGH to be the first. If for no other reason it continues to solidify comic films as viable and help encourage a possible sequel.
I did like it. I didn't outright love it but it was fun. The current main comic is better but the movie was still fun. I hope any potential sequel has the humor toned down a bit. No reason for Brit to be that silly, Rogan or not.
I'm hoping for a sequel anyway. It's made over $225m worldwide and that isn't shabby even if it didn't hit breakeven domestic.
It does not solidify comic films. The Green Hornet is a radio program turned television program. It's the same idea as Star Trek. There are Star Trek comic books but it is a television program first and foremost. Some people erroneously refer to the Green Hornet as a pulp hero.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment stung the competition with The Green Hornet, as the action-comedy film based on the classic TV show, with $98.8 million in theatrical earnings, debuted at No. 1 on all three home video charts for the week ending May 8.
Green Hornet also buzzed its way to the top of Home Media Magazine ís weekly disc rental chart, thanks to its immediate availability at Redbox and Blockbuster Express kiosks. Sony Pictures only holds back its new releases from Netflix.
For those of you who have watched the tv show at length: In the DVD extras, Rogen comments that you could tell someone that the TV show takes place five years after this movie and it (the TV show) wouldn't seem out of place. Agree or disagree?

Always remember, Murphy was an optimist
I wasn't very impressed with it.
Yes, it had it's moments, but all I could see was Seth Rogen playing the Green Hornet, not the Green Hornet.
He's too loud of a personality to be able to write into a convincing superhero role in my opinion.
Did I enjoy the movie for what it was? Yes.
But, it could have been much, much better if like half of Rogen's dialogue was played down a bit. Yeah, that's alot to ask, but I honestly don't see superhero material when I think of Seth Rogen.
