A new trailer for the superhero flick Green Lantern has been released. If you want to check it out in 3D, a 3D version will be attached to screenings of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides this weekend. Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, the first human ever selected for the Green Lantern Corps. The movie also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins. Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) directed the comic book adaptation, which hits theaters in 3D on June 17th.

Much like the recent footage/trailers that have been released for the film, this one focuses a lot on the space stuff. It’s also filled with a lot of exposition, which I think is a smart move. The general public most likely has little to no idea what Green Lantern is about, other than the fact that Ryan Reynolds is in it. This trailer basically lays the foundation for the story and the universe of the film. The more I see from this movie, the more excited I get. Watch the trailer for yourself after 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. The movie also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Jon Tenney, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins.
