New Green Lantern trailer emerges from blackest night

May. 4, 2011by: Paul Tassi

With THOR getting rave reviews and everyone liking every second they see of CAPTAIN AMERICA, DC's GREEN LANTERN hasn't been getting quite the same amount of love. Its joke heavy original trailer was light on plot and featured some questionable CGI that raised a few eyebrows.

But it's nice to see a studio actually LISTEN to criticism for a change. Warner Bros. sunk a lot more cash into cleaning up the computer effects, hired a few notable voices for the additional Lanterns and bam, things seem to be shaping up.

This new spot is less about Reynolds being hilarious and more about the epic space war that the film centers on. I was a critic before, but I have to say this is a marked improvement over what we've seen so far. Check it out for yourself below or watch in HD at Yahoo.

Extra Tidbit: Too bad it's too late to go back and give him a non-CGI mask, but it does look better.

I'm still confused on why Paralax(who looks like absolute shit btw) is in this..couldn't they have just followed the Emerald Dawn storyline.

I do not understand the love for this movie at all. I could understand if it was Superman, Batman, Spidey or the X-Men (because fans of those will just about buy anything even if it actually looks bad), but Green Lantern really has that many retardotron fans??? That will blindly swallow anything about this character and his movie, even when it looks THIS bad???

Thumb me down. Call me a Troll. I don't care. This movie really doesn't look good and I can't even tell if this trailer has the

Thumb me down. Call me a Troll. I don't care. This movie really doesn't look good and I can't even tell if this trailer has the improved cgi or the old crappy looking cgi.

I'm sure this will make tons of money, but it looks like the worst superhero movie in a long time.

not sure

I think Green Lantern is a tough movie to film. There will be a time that a sci fi/ fantasy film will be made entirely CGI, ie the great looking but poorly written Final Fantasy. Maybe they should have waited for that tech to be perfected to attempt Green Lantern.

I'm torn by Phyonikx. On one hand it bothers me that someone took the time to correct me, on the other hand I took the time to follow his link and I learned something. From now on I'll just take the time to write out for example.

Still looks the same to me. And I still can't shake all the one-liners I saw in the footage at Wondercon. If I wasn't seeing this one for free already, I wouldn't pay to see it.

How is DC stepping up their movie game? They have one movie coming out this year, and one next year. And only Batman has been proven to be worth watching under Nolan's direction. Compared to Marvel who are weaving a story arc through multiple movies and with different directors at the helm.

Goofy Guardians.

Not as good as the WonderCon footage, but its still nice to see some new shots and reveals. Seeing the Guardians though, kind of wish they would have just done actors with prosthetic faces/heads and shrunk the bodies with CG, ala Lord of the Rings. They look like prequel trilogy Yoda with jelly-fish heads.

Nitpicks aside, I'm still excited!
