A glimpse of Green Lantern!

Nov. 13, 2010by: Dave Davis

Excited for GREEN LANTERN? If you weren't, this too-damn-short sneak peek might get you there. (Or not.)

ET premiered a preview of their preview for the DC superhero space epic, and while they're yapping over the footage as usual, at least you get a good (but quick) sense of the tone and visuals, plus a look at the costume in action.

The trailer itself arrives with the new HARRY POTTER, and the movie lands next June.

People are talking about the comedy about it... if I had to bet I'd say it is going to be like the newest Star Trek...

Comedy heavy (but not completely) during the origin pieces, but the entire second half is dramatic and gripping...

I think it'll be great... from top to bottom this is a talented crew

Hey it's all workin' for me! I'm still amazed they actually did it! I been a GL fan since the late 1960's! so...I'm hip to any effort.

This movie looks cool, when the CG is finished in six months, everything will look great.

I'VE BEEN SAYING FROM THE BEGINING...

that Reynolds was miscast and this clip proved my doubts. Nothing against Reynolds personally but his style and approach is completely wrong for Hal Jordan. Hal is cocky yes, but he's not a showboat thrill seeker. He's much more like the Captain Kirk that Chris Pine played in Star Trek. I really had high hopes for this but in 30 seconds all my fears were confirmed about the tone their taking with this movie. I know it's just a small clip, but it's a small clip that says a lot to me like the way

Kneejerk Fans

Ohhh boy is the kneejerk, ill informed reaction to this simply woeful. A few arguments to comments I've seen here and elsewhere:

1. "Bad CGI". First off, the movie does not come out until JUNE, and just like MOST MOVIES they will be working on the CG until the very last minute. "They bettar clean dis up before da movie comes ou!" Yes, thank you for telling the filmmakers to do something that's an industry norm, Captain Obvious. I've also heard people say the CG is like something from 1997.

I've also heard people say the CG is like something from 1997. Clearly these children were not alive in 1997.

2. "Campy tone". Wow, so from two lines you can discern the tone of an entire 2+ hour movie? Yeah, gonna call bullshit on that. I think a lot of people here don't actually know what campy actually means, because this does not have a hint of it. It more or less seems like it has the same exact tone as IRON MAN, as it should. This is not Batman folks, this is Green Lantern, there is an allowance for a certain amount of humor and lightheartedness, and that does not equate to being campy.

Kneejerk, whiney fans are why we get crap like X-Men Origins Wolverine. Shut up and wait for a real trailer, idiots.

This is HAL JORDAN, not BRUCE WAYNE.

Not every character in the DCU is moody and stoic, Hal Jordan is a douchey ladies man and Ryan's characterization fits him EXACTLY.

Hell in a recent story, he spent an entire fight trying to remember the name of one of the Muppets (it was Gonzo).

You can tell just by looking at it that it's clearly not finished... No studio would release that. Movie's take time. Let's just give it that time.

I am pretty sure when the real trailer arrives, a lot of people will think different!
And they are still pretty early in post-production and for 7 month away from release, the CGI isn't that bad.
Specially if you look at the caps here:

The scene with Sinestro, Kilowog and Hal flying are already looking really cool...

Two things I can say

1. The CGI is 1997 standards. At best. Think Flubber with Robin Williams.

2. Comedy seems to dominate, when it should be in the background. Green Lantern is not a comedy first hand.

Still excited.

Can easily see why there are alot of negative posts towards the CG, but to be honest, as far as tone, I think alot of that can be blamed on the fact that ET cut up the trailer a bit for advertisement, focusing on the light hearted comedy instead of the things that GL fans want to see.

All negative things aside, its a great time to be amongst the Green Lantern fans! Really looking forward to what else they have to offer.

Can't judge the CGI from that pixelly teaser. I hope the goofy tone is not predominant in the whole film, and that it's more dramatic space opera like (early) Star Wars than Iron Man. And I think the big green fist would look better connected to the ring with a beam of energy. But wow, they are actually making the movie...

The first impression isn't that great, but I'll wait for the real trailer and I woun't judge this movie on this ET footage...
Also the cgi woun't be finished until the movie comes out, so I think it will improve the closer we get to the release.

The movie looks good considerin that it wrapped principle photography in late September. The post production process won't be finished until June, so please stop hating on the CG until the movie is finished.

For people ripping the movie already

This literally only showed 31 seconds of a probable 2 hour movie. I don't think there is much to go on right now, yet we have tons of people going off on it already. Wait til we get a trailer, actual full clips.

Campy tone? It's TWO LINES, you can't judge from two lines.

Meh, I wasn't impressed. I like Reynolds, and I don't know enough about the character to judge his performance, but what they showed failed to impress. I didn't care for the action I saw and the comedy didn't really capture me. Maybe the trailer will be better, but that 30 seconds didn't work too well.

For all of you complaining about some leaving negative comments about this teaser...

The whole "wait until you see more footage" thing is ridiculous. This is all we have to go by right now, it was posted for us to comment on. Get it?

More than half the people in here are crying over nothing. 20 seconds of actual footage and ya'll KNOW this will suck? Give me a break. I swear, most superhero/comic book nerds are nothing more than fussy little babies that think they're owed instant perfection on a diamond encrusted platter.

No really, these pictures and clips should not be treated as more than glimpses of movies not completed, I reserve judgement until a real trailer is out, same goes for Captain America and Thor.

This movie looks awesome. A friend of mine is working in the post production department of Green Lantern, and he said that they're only about 25% finished the special effects on the movie. So for those of you who don't like the CG, it isn't finished yet. In fact, Warner Brothers isn't even close to being finished with the CG, so calm down people. Green Lantern will look amazing when it is finished. They rushed out the trailer so that it can premiere before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

The CGI looks bad. Is it fair to judge by such a small amount of footage? Sure, why not? Now, before anyone says something like "The effects are probably preliminary and not fully polished yet," just remember people said that about Spider-Man 3. Whatever. As long as Ryan Reynolds is shirtless for the majority of the time and my date gets horny I'll be coming out of this movie a winner. It's called the Wolverine principle.

I like what Ryan Reynolds does as an actor and I enjoy comic book movies, I was keeping an open mind about this movie but after watching this clip ... ssshhhhhhhh, it just looks terrible - I'll still keep an open mind until the official trailer is released.

Ofcourse the EW version is choopy and uses only the comedic dialogue bits. Also, the costume looks great, but obviously, all the FX still need work (its a full 7 months away).

Plus, c'mon...fuckin' Kilowag!

I don't see the justification for the cgi costumer just yet. Hopefully we get a true sense on why they went with a cgi suit in future clips.

I'm holding out to see the trailer. I'm guessing they went more light hearted for the ET spot. Hopefully that's not the tone of the movie. Certain CG shots of the costume looked bad . Other's looked really nice. Hopefully it's just an issue of needing polishing.

Anybody notice that ET credited "Gossip Girl's Blake Lively" first?

Then they made sure to include clips of Ryan without his pants, and then referring to removing his pants. I don't think the ET preview was meant for guys on the internet.

They rushed the FX shots out so they could have a teaser of their next big movie to go with their upcoming big movie.

Also, the first trailer of King Kong had unfinished FX. But they rushed out a teaser. Then when the movie came out they had a completely different design of Kong. Studios DO put out unfinished things.

To the people ripping the rippers...

People are ripping the flick already because of these clips, and these are clips Warner have sent out. In that sense, everyone has a right to judge it based on exactly what they see, and right now almost everyone's either hating it or on the fence. What does that tell you, really? That the movie's gonna' stay that way OR Warner should have been more careful about what they send out. And no, not every superhero needs to be dark and gritty, just not silly like the effin' Fantastic Four.

Well, it didn't wow me but I still think this movie will be better than the 30 second clip we saw. I'm sure Reynolds will act more like his usual self early in the film (where it looks like this footage fits), and mature as the film progresses. Give the man a chance.

Looks like Ryan Reynolds is once again playing...himself. I feel like he does this character in every film he plays. and dont even mention that costume, worst idea ever it looks like the worst cgi ever. and yes they may make it look better for the actual movie but if they're willing to release this footage to the public it means it's not that far off from what its gonna look like.

Oh boy . . . I've defended the Reynolds' casting and ripped people that STILL call him Van Wilder. So now I get some clips where I see him doing Green Lantern as Van Wilder. My hopes dropped a lot, but I will wait and see. If there's no more goofiness than in Iron-Man (FIRST one) I could end up enjoying it.

I have a good friend who is working on the VFX for the film. I know it will be better then what we just saw, he told me it's basically the same team that did Watchmen. I would reserve jusdgement untli we see a full trailer in HD. This compressed ET crap can't do anything justice.

I was holding out hope for this, but wow, this looks like pure shit. The campy cheese is giving me Catwoman/Batman & Robin flashbacks.

Ehhh

How do any of you know it's unfinished? Why would they release footage with unfinished special effects? they know everyone is going to see it and judge it.

Besides the FX...I'm just upset with the tone of the footage. I know it's based on 30 seconds but still. Those 30 seconds say a lot. A movie can have a serious mood while still containing some humor. I wanted this to be epic. I had a lot of hope with Martin Campbell behind the camera; Casino Royale is one of my favorite movies. But this

They do it all the God damned time. Everyone thought Iron Man had horrible CGI when they released the first trailer a good half year before the movie came out.Same with Hulk, same with King Kong, same with more or less every big budget CGI movie.

And no, those 30 seconds don't say anything, at all. This is an ET fluff piece.

This movie is gonna be good when it's released in June. The CG isn't finished yet, that's why it looks "unfinished".

What a bunch of crazy talk! Too joke-y? What jokes? There was one line done in flirtation from a hotshot pilot. Honestly, except for Nathan Fillion, all the other fan suggestions were boring as hell, so I for one am happy they cast Ryan.

I'm tentatively excited. Between this and that concept art, I think I might be excited most about seeing Oa.

Still, it does like Ryan would have been a better Kyle Rayner.

You don't know what GL is, don't puke out your opinion

The negative ratings & comments from the people below, if you don't know anything about the character, why spout your opinion based on 30 seconds of rerez Entertainment Tinight footage? Are you the same clowns that said last year that Avatar was going to bomb because of blue Thundercats?

Can Ryan Reynolds EVER play anyone other then Ryan Reynolds.

Warner Bros. is killing DC. The only thing they have going for it is the Batman films. They need to get their head out of their asses and follow Marvel's lead. Build these films up, connect them and then lets see a Justice League movie.

Oh well, there goes another one. I'm not judging from a silly EW teaser but I think it's safe to say three things: the film is cheesy, Ryan Reynolds is playing himself, and the CGI is really bad at this point. They could improve, but hey, these clips are sent to the media BY Warner, so if they send out cheesy clips, it means that's the message they're sending about the flick.

I WAS really looking forward to this, but yikes...not good. I'm getting a Fantastic Four vibe from that clip, and that ain't a good thing. Hopefully I'm wrong and the movie still delivers.

WTF?

I'm sorry but that's just awful. Studios like first impressions to hit with a bang. If this is their best impression, this movie is going to be ignored in mass next year. Hope the real trailer somehow can turn this momentum around.

There's laughing with and then there's laughing at... people may be mocking this film for years to come.

You are comparing a scene this long to 97' seriously way more advanced then that. and it looks like a good try at GL especially with Kilowog!! why do you all hate i dont get it, their making a movie based on what we inviosioned!!!! they just have more resources and you complain because its not perfect!! you need to re check what you look for in a comic book movie, and realize they make these things based on how things are interpreted now!!! so deal with it and appreciate it, you cannot expect

How many super hero movies have we seen teasers for and been impressed by them?! NONE! Get your panties out of a bunch and relax! I'm still excited by this movie because it hasn't been in post production very long and the talent in the film speaks for itself. the CGI will be great when it's all said and done.

Figuring it still has about 7 months of CGI work to be done, I won't judge that right now. However, while I can live with the suit, the mask looks ridiculous, just like it did on that cover photo and Ryan Reynolds is coming off like is normal smart ass, wise cracking self which is what we were all afraid of. We were hoping for the Reynolds from Amityville Horror and we're getting the Reynolds from Waiting. This leaves me little hope for Chris's Captain America performance.

Well in all fairness his character in Amittyville Horror WAS a lady killer...just a slightly more literal one. But I do agree, he seems miscast. And now that he's done this he'll have no shot at the DC character he was born to play, The Flash.

Green Lantern looks amazing so far. And if you're not stoked about the CGI, then calm your mind, because the movie isn't coming out until June. The CGI will be completely finished and perfected by that date. These clips are very early and unfinished.

I'm a huge DC fan and Hal Jordan this is not. Not only does he seem to be playing this as a comedy, the entire vibe of the film feels very reminiscent of the Fantastic Four movies.

And before people start talking shit about ET only showing 30seconds, remember ET's 30seconds of Nolan's Batman films. Everyone loved it, and it gave us an accurate taste of the movie's entire vibe.

1st impression

Just from the teaser the movie may be a little different than i first thought...but hey, summer 2011 is gonna be fuckin' PACKED w/ a hell of a lot of good movies. So even if this is more comedy/action than straight action i'll still see Green Lantern opening day.

Huge dissappointment

This was the film I was looking forward to the most and now I'm greatly disappointed by what I am seeing. I know it is really early still but it seems that the movie is going to be way too campy. And Reynolds doesnt seem to be pulling it off.

Wow that looks bad.

Hopefully they clean up the CGI A LOT before they release this thing. Not that the CGI is going to help with the campy comedy tone. There's a reason why Marvel Studios movies are beating the collective pants off of anything DC related (except Nolan's Batman movies); quality. WB execs don't know what quality looks like.

wait a minute... I thought this would be Ryan Reynolds playing a serious superhero role, not every other comedic role he's played in his previous flms; even though cg makes the film look pretty nice I have a feeling the film as a whole won't do so good, I need to see more.

This makes me feel all the more terrible about Bradley Cooper not getting the role. I'm a huge fan of Reynolds, especially when he does serious roles. But I don't believe that Hal Jordan is the humorous type. They should have gone with the John Stewart route.

Plus the CGI is crappy. It look like a cheap disney flick.

For a second I thought both the actor and director were taking this seriously - like TDK. It's obvious now, they went campy, cheesy and dropped serious altogether.

Reynolds is sub-par.

I'll definitely see it but I think it'll make Blade money than Spidey or X-Men money. GL is more of a secondary character with not too much appeal to the general public.
