When you think about the quirky hero The Green Hornet there’s no doubt that visions of Bruce Lee as “Kato” come to mind. The re-make of the classic, featuring Seth Rogan and Jay Chou, will be released on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on May 3rd. A DVC combo pack will also be available on the release date, ensuring that everybody that wants a crack at this movie will get one.
Though the film wasn’t shot in 3D, a post-production conversion brought the latest craze in filmmaking to the feature. With 1080p video, an HD 5.1 Master Audio, and tons of features, this Blu-ray package offers much more than just the movie itself. Director commentary, a great gag reel, and even footage of Jay Chou’s audition for the role of Kato highlight the extras.
Those looking to snag the 3D rendition will also enjoy taking a look at storyboards that show how the film got from concept to the big screen. When it comes to classic movies, I’ve always loved seeing the storyboards, as it’s interesting to learn how close they came to their desired finished product. Expect to fork out around $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $49.95 for the combo pack.
