Tomar-Re teaches us Green Lantern 101 in the new trailer

May. 20, 2011by:

If you're not that familiar with GREEN LANTERN, this will be the perfect introduction, since the new trailer essentially provides a brief history of the Lantern Corps, the movie's villain, the selection of Hal Jordan, and a reiteration of the space-traveling superhero's rhyming motto.

The 3D movie is directed by Martin Campbell (CASINO ROYALE, THE MASK OF ZORRO) and opens on June 17th. Not much else I can tell you that Tomar-Re (voiced by Geoffrey Rush) doesn't let you know in the trailer below.

Check out the new trailer below or in HD at Yahoo.

yup but you know what? it looks more epic than that climax from Rise of The Silver Surfer and 2. i will watch it because its a change of pace from the typical Superman (Reboot after Reboot) and Batman...and this looks (finally) worthy watching it in 3-D

This definitely should have been the first trailer they released. I haven't felt this excited about a trailer since TDK. Intense.

Jacked!!

Loving the Lantern more and more!! and yes another great trailer.. however i'm a bit sceptical about them releasing too much footage in these trailers. i understand its to get more on board. Just hope that they have many more climatic scenes in this movie, and didn't use it, just to make the sale i.e less is more

I'm a huge Green Lantern fan

and have been waiting for a movie based on it for a long time but...
I think they may have gone overboard with the CGI.

CGI is was the only way to make it happened. Could you imagine an animatronics version of "PARALLAX", i know "Killowog" would have been cool animatronics, but CGI was the cost effective way to go...

Looks awesome. I am very much looking forward to it though I still wish they had saved Parallax for a third film and had it be Hal going evil. Maybe they could do that for a JLA movie if they ever do one.

can't wait

most people had a problem with the first trailer and since have come around. i however have been looking forward to this since the concept was first announced. every trailer has been nothing but awesome showing us more and more of the epicness, and though the first trailer was as some people called silly, i enjoyed that its not gonna be the dark knight, it should be different, funny, heartfelt, serious it should be a well rounded movie, i love nolans work on batman but i times i think man he

Best trailer yet

Unlike many, I didn't find the 4 minute trailer to be all that different from the first trailer that we saw. But for some reason, (maybe Geoffrey Rush's voice), I really liked this trailer. I still don't have very high expectations (maybe that's a good thing), but I'll for sure see it in theatres.

Light This Up!

Though I thought it looked a little silly at first, as a big DC comics fan this is really growing on me, and seems to be DC's answer to Thor - the look, tone and themes are similar, and so far, I think it works! Looking forward to seeing this in 3D.

Running Time?

Anyone know if this is going to be rushed and packed within a 90 minute film or will they actually give it time to evolve into the "space epic" (lol) that RR is saying it is... I mean 2 hours is minimum here...

Still looks like shit

I know you are all on this train but this really looks cheesy as hell. they tried to trim out all the stuff we know is in this movie from the first trailer (the turnip headed villain, the lame roommate, etc) but this isnt much better. the mythos was pretty cool but GL still looks like neon poo, Parallax looks like it was rendered with a 10 year old computer and really who cares? i could be wrong. but i doubt it.

Looks good.

Something to watch in the theatre for sure. This film will be extra successful for having Reynolds in it. He brings in a bigger percentage of woman than the average superhero flick would.

try to refrain comparing this with Batman and Robin...that movie..shouldnt even said or for that matter being in a sentence..trying to say this is on par with Batman and Robin is like trying to compare Michael Bay TRANSFORMERS to Uwe Bolls video game movies!

I'd love to see the people editing these trailers/TV spots switch it up and not have Reynolds shouting "GREEN LANTERN'S LOIGHT!" at the end of each and every one of them.

I've honestly tried to bite my tongue concerning this movie because I know some are looking forward to it and I don't like to rain on anyone's parade but "The emerald energy of will power"?!?!? "The yellow power of fear"?!?!? I nearly did a spit take on my screen. Just when you thought they couldn't get any cheesier. Do fans still think this stuff is going to fly with general audiences? Honestly?

How the fuck is that any cheesier than any other comic book film you've seen?

Seriously, you keep saying you're a comic fan, but I honestly don't believe you.

i think that's what its actually called in the comics tho. i did some wikipedia research on green lantern and once cool thing iread was that parallax'es "yellow poer of fear" doesnt work that well on Batman b/c he too also is in control of his own fears.

i'm excited for this film, but i as well don't like the way parallax looks. i preferred the parasite look he has in the comics.
