black-beauty

During a special press event that took place after the show floor had been closed this evening, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Michel Gondry, and Neal Moritz unveiled the Black Beauty, the main vehicle in The Green Hornet. As you can see, the final product is classy and old-school, while still possessing the ability to kick every other car’s ass. We had the opportunity to chat with Evan, Seth, and Michel and learn some tantalizing new tidbits about their new film. Hit the jump to see the interviews. Be sure not to miss the Gondry interview where exhibit hall security forcibly tries to remove all of us, Gondry included, from the show floor.
