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 Royale) Green 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 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.
