A new poster for Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet, prominently showcasing the masked vigilante’s gun-toting ride “The Black Beauty” (much like this one), has found its way online . While Christopher Nolan’s Bruce Wayne might have fewer qualms leaving his seatbelt unbuckled in his tank-Hummer hybrid “Tumbler,” it looks like Britt Reid has a better shot at picking up a date for the night. (For a closer peek at the Green Hornet’s wheels, check out the official spec video and pictures from Comic-Con here.)
The superhero action-comedy stars Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express), Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) and Jay Chou (Curse of the Golden Flower). The Green Hornet arrives in theaters on January 14th, 2011 in three dimensions. Hit the jump to check out the poster and official synopsis.

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son and heir to Los Angeles’ largest newspaper fortune, is a rich, spoiled playboy who has been happy to maintain a direction-less existence. When his father James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) dies, Britt meets an impressive and resourceful company employee, Kato (Jay Chou). They realize that they have the resources to do something worthwhile with their lives and finally step out of James Reid’s shadow. Kato builds the ultimate weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with every weapon imaginable and Britt decides that in order to be heroes, they will pose as villains. With the help of Britt’s new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). He has united all the gangs under his power, and he quickly sees that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to the prosperous criminal underworld he controls.
