Green Lantern 3D Trailer Breaks It Down

Posted May 25, 2011 - By Joseph Baxter

The latest trailer for Green Lantern may very well be the best argument against the shrinking number of naysayers for this film. While it's (apparently) in 3D, the selling point is the presentation, which is absolutely epic.

By now, you've certainly seen more than your fair share of Green Lantern, with trailers airing on television and the merchandise and toys are starting to flow on the pegs of retail stores everywhere. (Movie Masters Hal Jordan action figure ftw.) However, I think it's pretty safe to say that we've never seen the storyline, which on paper is too complex and unworkable for a movie, explained so eloquently as by Geoffrey Rush's Tomar-Re, aided by the powerful (apparently 3D) visual effects.

From explaining the origin of the Emerald Energy of Willpower to the looming threat of Parallax, powered by the Yellow Power of Fear (which also foreshadows the future plans of Mark Strong's Sinestro,) this trailer pretty much cements the film as a must-see when it hits theaters on June 17.

    It looks fake? Wow, a magic ring that can do whatever you think about using magic green energy looks fake? Wonder what the real magic ring and emerald energy look like...lol. Anyway, it's a movie based on comics, I'm not sure what people mean by "fake". I think the CGI is sick, and I will be seeing this one in the theater. Not sure about 3D or 2D yet though.

    It is, (assuming Ryan Reynolds doesn't screw it up with a Christian Bale growl in his throat or some retarded joke that Hal would never say), going to be the start of a great series for DC. If some people (^above) would stop looking at the CG as a bad thing and realize a movie like this could not be done in any feasible time frame without it, then it would garner the respect it deserves. I would prefer a "cartoony" looking movie that captured the story line that I've been following since I was 5 versus the opposite. (Side note, Parallax doesn't just feed off fear, he's the embodiment of it).

    It looks so darn fake. With all that cg work I don't think its gonna look good at all. Im sure ill watch it but maybe tone back on the movie make up. Good way to ruin a good movie... change the story or make a real movie look like a cartoon.
