Sorry for the delays, but for some reason the post I had posted a week ago on its release didn’t want to work — and that brings me to the very first Green Lantern, which you can view embedded below. Thanks to Entertainment Tonight we have the trailer to the DC comics Green Lantern trailer, which aired online a couple of weeks ago. Which was short, being 30 seconds long, caused a bit of worry in the comic-geek community as it featured Reynolds pulling a few one-liners…as the comic Hal Jordan/Green lantern was very straight faced indeed.
It wasn’t great, but just a couple days ahead Apple posted the first official HD trailer for the film here — which wasn’t much of an improvement. It was light on the jokes, appalling CGI for the suit and just over-all crap. That wasn’t the reaction from a few other well known sites but for me that was exactly how I felt about our first official look into the movie — it just lacks everything I expected from a high-rolling Hollywood superhero flick.
For those less familiar with The Green Lantern mythos, Hal Jordan played by Ryan Reynolds is a test pilot who is given a ring of extreme power which gives him powers beyond his imagination but also makes him a member of an intergalactic police force known as The Green Lanterns. Directed by Martin Campbell, cast includes Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, and Peter Sarsgaard. Check out the trailer below, and tell me what you think — because you know how much I liked it. Enjoy!
