A new UK poster for Green Lantern has gone online. Unlike the previous character posters that focused on humans Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) and Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), this new character poster features Xudarian Green Lantern Corps member Tomar-Re (voiced by Geoffrey Rush). While it’s a bit of a risk to highlight a weird fish-bird looking alien, it’s a necessary risk because there are four superhero movies coming this summer. Green Lantern‘s greatest weapon is how different it is not only from this summer’s competition, but also from any modern superhero movie. Presumably, we’ll also be seeing posters for non-humans Kilowog (voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan) and Sinestro (Mark Strong).
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Green Lantern opens in 3D on June 17th. [Update: We’ve updated this article with a larger version of the poster.]

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.
