Seth Rogen, best known for slacker comedies, was always an unusual choice to play Britt Reid, tough-guy masked hero the Green Hornet, but it’s just that casting that makes me interested in seeing the movie now that it’s coming to home video on May 3. Heck, Heidi liked it, calling it “charming, very funny, and worthy of repeated viewings.”
In addition to the Blu-ray (shown right, list $35), there’s a DVD version ($29) and a three-disc Combo Pack ($50) that adds a Blu-ray 3D disc.
The basic extras on the DVD include a filmmaker commentary, gag reel, and two featurettes: “Writing the Green Hornet” and “The Black Beauty: Rebirth of Cool”.

The Blu-ray adds these additional items: (I don’t have details, so no idea what some are.)
- Jay Chou (Kato) Audition
- “Trust Me” -Director Michel Gondry
- The Art of Destruction
- Double Barrel
- Finding Kato
- The Green Hornet Cutting Room
- The Stunt Family Armstrong
