For those that have seen it, what did you think of the movie?

In brightest day, in darkest night…Vote on our poll!


Another awesome (hopefully) movie I’m looking forward too. Just sharing this new and rather cool banner showing off Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan.

The film is set to come out on June 17th 2011.

Here’s the synopsis for the film:

“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.”


the grass is greener on the welded side

Finally, some new promotional material, in the form of pics for the upcoming Martin Campbell-directed Green Lantern movie. 

I have to be honest, I  don’t know much about this comic book character hailing from the DC Universe, but I’m interested to see if they can pull it off. 

I think Ryan Reynolds is a good choice for the character, I mean he certainly looks the part, however I hope it’s not going to be a case of him approaching the part through Van Wilder’s eyes, if you know what I mean.

If anything, I have faith in the director, Martin Campbell who has been at the helm of movies such as Goldeneye (1995), The Mask of Zorro (1998), The Legend of Zorro (2005), Casino Royale (2006) and most recently Edge of Darkness (2010).

The Green Lantern ensemble cast includes Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett.
