Huge news here. The very highly anticipated trailer for the new Ryan Reynolds film, Green Lantern, has now been released. Based on the comic book of the same name, Reynolds takes the lead role as Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern. Blake Lively and Mark Strong will also star.
To be honest, I’m not too familiar with the comics or backstory on the Green Lantern but I gotta say, the movie looks like it’s shaping up nicely. I’m a big fan of Reynolds and this looks like a solid superhero movie. As /Film points out, not all the effects look great but it’s not a big deal since they still have time to polish it all. The trailer definitely has me excited though, it met my expectations and I’m really looking forward to seeing more footage from the film.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Here’s the official plot summary:
‘Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.’
