New GREEN LANTERN Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

by     Posted 3 years, 80 days ago


With the film slated to hit 3D theaters on June 17th, Warner Bros. has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for director Martin Campbell’s (Casino RoyaleGreen Lantern. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins, the film tells the story of Hal Jordan (Reynolds), the first human ever to join the intergalactic peacekeeping Green Lantern Corps. Even though I typically find Reynolds’ charm and sense of humor to be on point, I am still having trouble getting past what I’ve seen of Green Lantern‘s special effects thus far. I’m hoping that within the context of the full movie I’ll be able to adjust to the CGI suits. Only time will tell.

To check out the new behind-the-scenes featurette featuring commentary from Campbell, Reynolds, set designer Joseph Hiura, Geoff Johns, and producer Donald De Line (who goes all in by referring to Green Lantern as the “ultimate movie”), hit the jump.

Here’s the new featurette from Subway’s Facebook page:

Here’s the official synopsis for Green Lantern:

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.

    I really want this film to be great and succeed at the box office but part of me thinks this is gonna end up being a huge failure. I really hope it isn’t though

    Dean, I think you’re right. I think Reynolds was the right choice for the character even though I’d of loved to have seen him as The Flash. That being said, I just don’t see this taking on the box office magic that Thor had (for what Thor was), X-Men: First Class (seems like it will have thanks to some stellar reviews), Transformers will have (because it’s Transformers and even the terrible second one raked in $800 mil.+) and Captain America should have. I hope it’s good, I’m going to see it, but I just don’t know at this point.

    you guys have been drinking the inter/posterdork kool aid. Green Lantern will do really well. I’ve had friends who aren’t comic people ask me about it, and then today my little cousin texted me a picture of green lantern cause he was pumped.

      Every person i’ve spoken to about Green Lantern (and that includes non-internet/comic geeks) just turn their nose up about it. They think it looks silly.


    They did their best with this but it is going to be a big bomb. They should have cast Reynolds in Flash (the project he wanted) – the mythology around GL is just too strange and specific. Maybe if they had held it off until Christmas – that might have saved it.

    I’m crossing my fingers this does big business at the box office-
    want to see Mark Strong’s Sinestro go badass yellow lantern in GL2.
