Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
On the heels of the latest extended TV spot for Green Lantern, Warner Bros. has released a new image and banner for its big-budget, effects-heavy summer tentpole.
The first, which comes courtesy of the movie’s official Facebook page, is a still of the Great Hall of the planet Oa, a location we’ve seen in the trailers and television ads. The second, debuting this morning at MTV’s Splash Page, is a lineup of the Green Lantern Corps, including Hal Jordan, Abin Sur, Tomar-Re, Sinestro and Kilowog. Hopefully the studio will send out a larger version of the banner, without the big MTV News logo, shortly.
Directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, Temuera Morrison, Jay O. Sanders, Taika Waititi and Jon Tenney. It opens in 3D and 2D on June 17.
Update: We’ve added a larger version of the banner.
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.
