The ring chooses Hal Jordan in the trailer for Green Lantern!

Nov. 16, 2010by:

When the early footage of GREEN LANTERN slipped online the other day, many fans were distressed about the apparent slapstick tone and seemingly dodgy CG work.

The new trailer appears to have a more serious and respectful approach to the character and his comic origins, and offers a better sense of the galactic scope of the considerable challenges Hal Jordan faces.

The official synopsis: 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.

Check it out below or in HD at Apple!

(NOTE: There's a confirmed Green Lantern/DC Universe "easter egg" in there for eagle-eyed fans.)

Extra Tidbit: Does this seem like it fits the same DC movie "universe" as Nolan's Batman series? Or would we need a whole new relaunch of Dark Knight movies if we're ever going to have a live-action JUSTICE LEAGUE?

As i've guessed...

This leaves a much better impression than the ET footage!
The CGI already looks very good and will improve the closer we get to the release. Sadly that can't be said about Livelys acting which is pretty stiff in the first scene...But overall, nice trailer!

It doesn't need to fit into Nolan's Batman universe, and I don't want it to. Let Marvel do their thing with Avengers, DC doesn't have to copy that formula right now. Overall, the trailer looks good. But it doesn't have Natalie Portman in a thong, so it's only the second best trailer I've seen today.

I think the effects look fine.

Don't understand why half the folks online are knocking them.

This trailer was badass. GL is going to be the first film in years that I wait in line for to see first day.

Batman

First, this looks awesome. Now with that said, why is everyone comparing this to Batman? Don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE Batman fan. He is my favorite super hero of all time. I also LOVED the Nolan flicks, but Green Lantern is NOT Batman. It is not fair to give it that comparison. GL/Jordan is a completely different character/person than Batman/Bruce Wayne. He is not dark and gritty like the B-Man. So, GL looks awesome and fun, no it isn't like the Nolan flick but it is not SUPPOSED to be.

I must reiterate, I LOVE Batman and he will always be my #1 hero but this isn't a dark tale. Jordan wasn't burdened with a traumatic past. Light hearted heroes do exist as well they should, it gives a good balance to the community. If all of them were brooding all of the time, then Batman would lose alot of his appeal. I'm down for the GL and have no real problem with Reynolds as GL, though I would have liked him as The Flash.

Dig it!

I'm liking what I'm seeing; sure, you can tell that the effects need a little work, but I'm certain it will be improved come its release date.

Mark Strong looks pretty awesome as Sinestro as well (Blake Lively seemed a little wooden, but she showed she has the acting chops in The Town, so I'm not too worried).

Looking forward to it!

Still my #1 for next year

Starts off a little rocky, but the tone of the trailer finds its footing once Abin Sur shows up. I'm loving the looks of the aliens. Not sure if this will WOW people, but I'm impressed.

I like that Martin Campbell is directing this. He's made a string of enjoyable films and I think that he's a great choice. Anything with Mark Strong gets my money. Reynolds will more than likely be great because the guy can act. I'm even pleased with the costume approach. The costume WAS a construct of the ring and making it completely CG is an interesting approach. The only thing I'm not completely liking so far is Blake Lively as Carol. A list of many more suitable candidates like Keri

A list of many more suitable candidates like Keri Russell, Eva Green and Diane Kruger, and they go with the Gossip Girl. And don't get me wrong; I like Blake. Hopefully she turns in a good performance

This actually looks pretty good! Reynold's proved his acting chops with Buried, so he should be great in this. The effects are pretty damn good as well, especially for a trailer. Should be a good time!

Is it weird

that I feel emotionally interested but not really enthused by the set pieces or, like, "awe factor"? Also, I can't make up my mind about those suit effects.

Looks much better.. but I feel like a douche bitching about the CGI.. there's just.. too much. The mask just seems so ridiculous... but Reynolds looks like he can carry this no matter what.

I don't know what to say. The cgi looks better this time around but still isn't quite good enough. Hopefully they'll keep working on it. The story also seems less slapstick and I'm loving all the shots of space and him flying. Ryan Reynolds is a likable guy and although he may not be a perfect Hal Jordan, I think I'll still like his version.

Martin Campbell is completely hit and miss. Casino Royale, The Mask of Zorro, and No Escape are all amazing, fun, exciting and wonderful films.

Martin Campbell is completely hit and miss. Casino Royale, The Mask of Zorro, and No Escape are all amazing, fun, exciting and wonderful films. Vertical Limit and The Legend of Zorro are very near crap. I hope this is one of the better ones.
The biggest problem however is Blake Lively. Begin tirade. I don't think it's "Oh, she seems ok." or "At least she's nice to look at." I'm not going to sugarcoat this. She looks dreadful. Absolutely awful. Quite possibly the worst performance in a superhero movie since Catwoman. Watch from seconds 20 to about 26. The line delivery is atrocious. Not only that but watch her when RR starts talking. She's just standing there, leaning in slightly and looking like she's waiting for him to finish his line so she can say hers otherwise she'll forget or something. Terrible. She was easily the worst actor in The Town but I just shrugged that off because I figured that when you're acting opposite a great cast like that, you're bound to look a bit bad but it's pretty clear that she just isn't very talented. End Tirade.
Overall, I'm still gonna see this in theaters and hopefully all the stuff I'm worried about will either be fixed (CGI) or not as bad as I'm gathering from this trailer(Lively). Btw, Sarsgaard and Strong are awesome.

I agree dude. I'm just saying that I didn't like her very much in The Town (the only thing of hers that I've seen) and this trailer isn't exactly helping. I should also clarify that I want to be wrong. I want a good Green Lantern movie with a great performance from Blake. This trailer isn't giving me that impression. As they say, hope for the best, expect the worst. :)

I still say Reynolds was and is all kinds of wrong as Hal Jordan. The trailer did nothing to alleviate that feeling. I'm not sold on this one at all.
Hell, when the first Iron Man came out and people were bagging on Downey as a horrible pick for Stark, that all changed after the first trailer. Not so with Reynolds and GL. I may just skip this one in the theater since there seems to be plenty of other comic book-related movies (that actually look good) coming out at the same time.

The suits are very cool now, there's even a Giger vibe to that sinewy design. Sinestro looks perfect and they sure got the perfect actor for him. Looks pretty epic to me. Reynolds could have done it a bit dryer maybe, but they probably wanted some Downey like goofiness.

Trailer was amazing and the movie looks fantastic. I loved everything in this and I really love the tone that it set. Reynolds was the perfect choice for Hal and will no doubt kick ass.

In my opinion, this is going to be the movie of the year in 2011.

I think the only reason why this movie and any Superman movie wouldn't work with Nolan's Batman is just because the level of threats wouldn't jive.

Seeing the real world Batman argue with this Green Lantern isn't my issue... it's just that the stakes of Dark Knight would be really low if they existed in the same world as Sinestro.

I'd say the only disappointing thing is that the suit is CG and the fucking movie is in 3D.....other than that I'll check it out....it's Martin Campbell for fuck's sake! He gave us the only decent Bond Film with Pierce Brosnan....Golden Eye baby! But if it sucks I'll gladly eat my words while challenging all non believers to a Uwe Boll - like boxing match

I was cringing at the ET footage, but after watching this trailer Im willing to give this a chance. It has the potential to be a good time. Sinestro looks great... the CGI looks pretty nice. I dont think we will ever get a true Justice League movie, that is one like Marvels Avengers. We would never see Bale show up in a Justice movie as Batman and we dont even know who Superman is going to be, they would have to introduce Wonder Woman to us as well as Flash and J'onn J'onnz i.e. Martian

JLA is just too many characters that frankly wouldnt do well on the big screen due to there lack of public fame.

I dunno, Warner's is trying really hard to get that Iron Man tone. They almost hit the mark in that trailer, but I'm just not sold on Reynold's delivery. The Suit is also pretty bad compared to the rest of the effects.

The CGI is hit or miss. His suit and mask are pretty bad.

Looked good, and fun. I liked how the suit looked, and the action looks spiffy.

"Not great" is still a far cry from "OMG, this CGI looks like its from the 90's! Ryan Reynolds is gonna make this movie a disaster! How could they fuck this up so bad????!!!! Wahhhh!"

Extra Tidbit

From what evidence we do have, no. Feels more like the Raimi's Marvel Spiderman "universe".

Why are people saying "to all the haters get a life" and mention how we need to stop bitching about how it's not exactly like the comic book. I simply think the movie so far looks awful.

I think any one of us could have cranked out a better trailer than that. I'm not feeling this yet. I'm also not giving up though.

neg my comment if you want

but this doesn't look very good from the trailer. I watch it and I see a lot of other bad superhero movies (Fantastic Four and Wolverine and Ghost Rider).

here's hoping i'm wrong.

Can certainly see drawing similarites in tone to FF and Wolvie, but Ghost Rider? Really? That might be reaching for a comparison, at least until clips are released showing a shirtless Reynolds with muscles that look like the rubber used for Vinnie Jones in X-Men clanking his teeth in the mirror while eating some jelly beans. Hope you are wrong on that count at least.

"for centuries"? JUST centuries?

The universe is 13 billion years old...entire solar systems likely containing life and entire civilizations have arisen and died out.

So this super mysterious, universe-wide group of Lanterns has been around a few hundred years? How UNDERwhelming!

The Lanterns weren't created right away. Before the Lanterns policed the universe, the Manhunters did this job in the beginning. You probably don't care, but there is a brief explanation. May not explain everything away, but there ya go for a start.

The ET footage had me well underwhelmed, and this doesn't help, i think in a summer filled with superhero movies, this will be the one that does the worse.

oh and the costume looked retarded

Meh. Sorry, I'm not really that impressed. This reminds me of Spider-Man...when they did the first one. With so many high concept comic book films and so many of them being grounded without the use of such obvious CG (and I'm sorry, but the CG here is very obvious), I just don't care all that much. I guess you would have to be a fan. That and this is another origin story, and I'm really kind of tired of origin stories. I realize that they have to start somewhere, but how many superhero

I realize that they have to start somewhere, but how many superhero introductions are we going to have? At least with Marvel, we know it's all leading up to The Avengers, and I can live with the Thor and Captain America films, but this is just a standalone with the same kind of story we've seen again and again. Sorry guys, I'm just not that interested.

This looks like a SyFy original movie. I was looking forward to this until the footage came out. Now I can save $10 next summer.

This has got to be the laziest insult for anyone to throw around.

"Special effects = video game! You know, because they both use CGI. Hahahaha! I'm so clever it hurts sometimes"

No, homeslice. Good CGI exists i.e. X2, Dark Knight, even Hellboy 1. Bad CGI typically looks like a video game, which no matter how advanced the CGI still always looks like a video game. Not lazy, just true.

Power Rangers Anyone?

Man, I've been saying for too long now and this trailer just prooved me right. This movie will suck so much Dyson will sue it. I really thought Reynolds could turn it around but that was foolish thinking. Him mixed with the lame CGI makes for a craptastic movie. Anyone thinking otherwise is a blind fanboy.
