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.
Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the superhero tentpole Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, the first human ever selected for the Green Lantern Corps: “A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers.” The movie also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins. Martin Campbell (Edge of Darkness) directed the comic book adaptation.
This trailer offers everything you’ve been waiting to see: character moments for Hector Hammond (Sarsgaard), Carol Ferris (Lively), Kilowog (voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan), and first looks at Amanda Walker (Bassett) and the Guardians of the Universe. I’ll admit that the CG on the Guardians looks kind of crappy, but there’s so much potentially great stuff in this trailer that I’m willing to suspend by disbelief a little further. I have no idea if this film is going to work, but I admire its ambition. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Green Lantern opens in 3D on June 17. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Warner Bros. has released four minutes of the Green Lantern footage they recently debuted at CinemaCon and WonderCon. The clip provides a long look at the on-screen Oa, and I really like what I see. It’s a geometrically crazy world that human Ryan Reynolds has to believably interact with, and it looks like the visual effects department nailed it.
Directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Jon Tenney, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins. The DC Comics superhero adaptation is scheduled for release on June 17. Watch the footage after the jump.
We have a couple casting stories to report to you this morning. First up, Angela Bassett has joined the cast of McG’s action-romantic-comedy This Means War. The film centers on a couple of best friends/international spies (played by Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who wage black-ops warfare on each other when they both fall in love with the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). According to Variety, “Bassett will play the boss to Pine and Hardy’s characters who has dedicated her entire life to the spy business and has no life outside the CIA.” Bassett will next be seen in the wedding comedy Jumping the Broom on May 6th and as Amanda Waller in Green Lantern on June 17th.

As most of you are aware, the first trailer for director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern hit the net yesterday. You can watch it here and we also posted over 40 high resolution screen grabs from the trailer. The other thing we posted was a new poster that was taken from a background image on Apple. Warner Bros. just sent over a high resolution version (seen above) and if you click on the poster, you’ll get it in a new window. I think it’s pretty cool and could be a nice screensaver.
Finally, if you’re a fan of Green Lantern, I’d check back tomorrow morning. That’s all I can say for now.
The new Green Lantern trailer is loaded with goodies that are sure to please comic book devotees. In case your eyes couldn’t move fast enough to catch them all, we’ve grabbed 40 high-res images for your still-framed pleasure!
Included in the eye-candy are shots of Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) as well as fellow Green Lanterns Abin Sur (Temuera Morrison), Kilowog, Tomar-Re and everyone’s favorite, Sinestro (Mark Strong). We’ve also got glimpses of Hal Jordan’s nemesis, Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard) and his on-again, off-again romantic interest, Carol Ferris (Blake Lively). Sharp-eyed fans will see that Ferris’s helmet emblem resembles a certain image that’s pretty instrumental to her character. Sequel anyone?
And since the Green Lantern costume is almost entirely CG, we’ve slowed down the transformation sequence so you can watch it bit by virtual bit. Check out the power battery as well! Hit the jump for the images:

Angela Bassett has joined the cast of Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern to play Dr. Amanda Waller. The character isn’t known too well outside of comic geeks. I never heard of her until I started watching Justice League Unlimited (where she was voiced by CCH Pounder). She also appeared on Smallville where she was played by Pam Grier. Here’s how Heat Vision describes her:
Bassett is playing Dr. Amanda Waller, a government agent who in comics lore became charged with overseeing the Suicide Squad, a government-run group of captured supervillains performing tasks in exchange for eventual freedom. It is unclear if that group will pop up in “Lantern” or if that mythology is being set up.
Hit the jump for more on Bassett, Dr. Waller, and what the Suicide Squad could mean for potential future movies. The actress will co-star alongside Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, and Peter Sarsgaard. Green Lantern is slated to hit theaters on June 17, 2011.
