A new Green Lantern poster has been released, this time focusing on villain Hector Hammond, played by Peter Sarsgaard. It’s a pretty spot-on poster, with Hammond making the obligatory “evil plan” face. It also serves as a reminder of just how grotesque Hammond becomes later on in the film, as witnessed in the trailer. I’ve been impressed by the footage we’ve seen so far, and I’m really hoping the finished product delivers.
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and Peter Sarsgaard. The film opens in 3D on June 17th.
Here’s the poster (via the film’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, 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.
