The Green Lantern is coming, and will hit theatres in August (oh, still 3 months… 😦 )
Directed by Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness), and starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Strong and Blake Lively (<3 🙂 ) , this DC Comic-Book adaptation (NOT to be mistaken for “movielization”!) is about pilot Hal Jordan, who gets a “magic” ring from dying alien Abin Sur, member of the Green Lantern Corps. Hal also becomes one of them, a protector of peace and justice in the Universe.
By now, there are 3 trailers for the movie, all of them great:
The first Trailer begins like a typical Ryan Reynolds movie would begin: Him waking up beside a random hot chick, who he treats not very well (“there´s water in the tap”) , before he realises he is late for a testflight with his partner and love interest Carol (Blake Lively). Until the point when he meets Abin Sur everything looks like a typical Ryan Reynolds comedy (“Just friends – no sex”). We are roughly a minute into the trailer when a huge turn occurs (as the more serious music promisses), and we know: We are in a Superhero movie!
Let´s hope the film keeps, what the great trailers promiss…
