Green Lantern – Trailer and Synopsis

Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).

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.

All I can say after watching this trailer a few times is that it blows the first trailer out of the water (which wasn’t hard to be honest). I’m not really an expert on Green Lantern so I have no real idea how faithful what has been shown is to the comics but the film is looking like a lot of fun. I’m not sure about Mark strong as Sinestro but that may be because every time I this guy in a film these days he’s a baddie.

The trailer music along with the use of the Green Latern oath and the look of oa and all the other Green Laterns from across the universe gave the trailer a much more epic vibe than the first trailer did for me.

This is shaping up to be one hell of a summer for Comic Book films.

What did you guys think of the trailer? How does it stack up to the Thor,Xmen and Captain America trailers? You can  comment on this latest trailer in our discussion topic on Facebook here

    Yeah I will say the trailer looks better but still so much CGI and some of it looks ropey. The music was great but a good trailer music can make any trailer sound great.

    I hope to be proven wrong about this movie. I like GL but if you compare this Vs Thor’s CGI, Thor will win every time.
