Wanna check out Green Lantern's Sinestro?

Jan. 13, 2011by:

Of course you do! Just look at him!

I was on the fence originally regarding the design of the GREEN LANTERN's costumes and designs. But the more I see from the film, the more all of that grows on me. This shot of Mark Strong's Sinestro (courtesy of French site CineHeroes)? I mean, he just looks f*cking GREAT.

Also, below the synopsis is a newer, higher-res shot of Tomar-Re than the one we saw a couple of weeks ago. Click either pic for BIG, and be sure to less us know what you think in our Strike Backs!

Synopsis: In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for millenniums. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors formed by the different races from entire universe 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 for the Corps: 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.


Extra Tidbit: I do, however, hope the next GREEN LANTERN trailer hits some better notes and actually begins to sell the "space opera" element.

Er.. wasn't that the shot of him from the trailer?

Either way, I'm pretty amped for this movie... and unlike most folk I'm digging the CGI suits. It works for Green Lantern methinks. This movie looks like fun (despite Ryan Reynolds being slightly miscast, just not destructively so)

Mark Strong? I'm there

he's been my favourite go-to villain ever since he stole Body of Lies out from under Leonardo DiCaprio.

The only problem I have with the Jordan costume is the face mask. Even with a glow on it, it still looks like it was painted on with Halloween make-up. Other than that, I think this thing looks brilliant.

Still skeptical. Trailer brought my hopes down big time. Hopefully it's a crappy trailer and not a crappy movie.

I'm sure GL is gonna rock! However the world of Green Lantern isn't for every Superhero fan. It is IMO an acquired taste...not a simple Universe of characters,races and structure, that is readily understood. BUT this film will generalize it and all will be cool! So go see it come June!

Parallax??

Why are they going there in the very 1st film??? That is something for like a 3rd film in the franchise. Why didn't they just go with Sinestro as the bad guy? This is now the 1st time I am on the fence about this film because to start there just doesn't make sense to me. 1st film, Sinestro, (if it does well) 2nd film Star Sapphire, 3rd film I could see Parallax.

that is a ballsy move for a 1st installment film.

It only makes sense to me if they are going with Kyle in the next film. I guess if you don't know who Parallax is, ignorance is bliss for this film.

Looks awesome

Hope they set him up with the Sinestro Corps in the sequel - that's the costume I really want to see.

I know its part of the Origin story, but I'd rather wait to see Sinestro in his traditional yellow suit

Looks amazing

They really did a good job of making him look like he should. I hope this continues with the rest of the film.

Looks great. Everything from this movie has looked terrific and has quickly become my number one movie to see in 2011.

Reynolds is one of my favorite actors and think he'll do a great job, but I still think he was slightly miscast. I still think Nathan Fillion or David Boreanaz would have made a better Hal Jordan.

The first trailer was weak but

I'm still excited to see the film. I started reading Green Lantern for the first time ever because I kept hearing how cool it was and also because I knew this film was in development. Sinestro looks awesome.

On the fence

I'll have to wait to see it of course. I'm not digging all the CG at first glance, but it may turn out to be a good style for this particular...let's call it "franchise" for now.

so far from whatve seen, this movie looks like a mess, the environments are horrible, they look fake as hell, and the characters cgi is also looking a bit bad themselves :(

i hope im wrong, because if im not, ryan reynolds is in for a big fail in the box office :S

The more I see the more I'm convinced this movie will be an ugly mess. That's sad, because in the beginning I thought it would be great...

The synopsis reminds me why I'll hate this....

...basically you've got an organization thousands of years old and as wide as the known universe. They feel a universe-wide threat. And the only one who can save them is a cocky, newbie human. FFS, how about an origin story that doesn't involve SAVING THE ENTIRE FUCKING UNIVERSE?

God damnit.
