All right, Green Lantern ... you've got a month to go before release. You've had a rough time of it—shoddy special effects and two super flicks from that other comic book company making you look bad. You kept at it, though, and things have been looking up.
Every year, we see another round of movie posters for sci-fi's summer blockbusters, and every year they try to make the advertised flicks sound better than they have any right to sound. Luckily, someone just decided to tell the truth about what you'll see after you plunk down your money. (And as you'd expect, it's not the studios.)
Not every superhero is born with great power. Some need a little outside help. If you're fighting the baddest villains in the world and can't shoot plasma beams from your eyes (and sometimes even if you can), then you're going to need a serious weapon.
Green Lantern thinks the new Thor movie looks like "every independent film from 1996." And Thor thinks that if he said anything nice about the upcoming Green Lantern movie, his "sincerity would look even faker than your CGI mask, if that is even possible." It's getting ugly, folks!
With June fast approaching, Warner Bros. has released a new theatrical trailer for its latest comic book film, Green Lantern, and we're finally getting more of the supporting characters such as Kilowog, Sinestro, Tomar-Re, Amanda Waller, Senator Hammond and the Guardians.
If you're a comic book store owner, you could spend $150 for a special "Green Lantern Animated Light-Up display," based on a variant cover of Green Lantern #50, with art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams. But you really, really shouldn't.
Warner Bros. felt it had to apologize for that first Green Lantern trailer, but the studio is doing everything it can to make sure it doesn't have to apologize for the movie itself—it just bumped the special effects budget by $9 million in the hope that we won't be disappointed when the film opens June 17.
All along, the creators of Green Lantern have been promising us that their picture wouldn't be like any other superhero movie we'd ever seen, but would have a cosmic Star Wars feel added to the mix ... and the newest trailer proves they were telling us the truth.
Warner Bros. has released three new images from the upcoming Green Lantern, specifically of Hal Jordan on Oa, the home planet of the Green Lantern Corps. And while we'd like to be able to say that all three are awesome, unfortunately .. we can't.
Usually, the only way you get to see the headquarters of the Green Lantern Corps is if you're wearing one of those spiffy power rings, but DC Comics just dropped a sneak preview into Green Lantern #65, now on sale, so us mere mortals can have a look, too.
