Eight New Green Lantern Clips

With the opening of Green Lantern a little more than a week away, Warner Bros. has unleashed eight — count ‘em, eight! — new clips from the Martin Campbell-directed film. Spreading them out over a week or so, a la X-Men: First Class, might’ve gotten a little more promotional mileage, but hey …

Green Lantern, who opens in 2D and 3D on June 17, stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Temuera Morrison, Tim Robbins, Taika Waititi and Angela Bassett.

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.

    Refusing to watch these. Waiting for the movie! Defo wearing my Green Lantern ring on the day!

  • Ryan

    Yeah, this was pretty much the plot of the entire movie. I guess I don’t have to go see it now?

  • Loose Nucleus

    Looks fucking silly.  What a waste of money.  I predict a bomb.

  • Panko

    Only idiots and worthless wastes of life judge a product before it’s released 

    we shall wait for the final result, and only then pass our judgement 

  • Ste1bro

    Looks fantastic. Gets my money. I predict a hit.

    See how this works?

  • Ste1bro

    Yeah, you’re right. I mean, those 8 minutes of footage are definitely, definitely all you need to see out of the 2 hours running time… *rolls eyes*

    (Oh sweet jesus, save us from people like Ryan and Loose Nucleus. Any wonder film-makers utterly ignore comments like theirs?)

    The eight clips I just watched have been released. Here is my judgment: they are fucking silly.  They will only appeal to people who regularly read “Green Lantern”.  That’s what, about eighty thousand?  Eighty thousand asses in seats for a big-budget summer movie is an abject failure; a “bomb”.  I predict a bomb.  Those spots were fucking silly.  The actor lacks charisma, the CGI looks like it was done on someone’s iPhone and I really don’t think people will respond as positively to a super-hero who can make tiny catapults out of laser beams that come from his jewelery as proven comic-book-to-movie shit like “X-Men”.  

    Funny you call it a “product”, which I guess it is, ’cause it sure ain’t art.

    Ass.

    Only idiots and fools pay money to see movies after watching terrible trailers promoting it. Because the awful coming attractions wasn’t enough for the dummy to make an educated guess that it wouldn’t be any good.

    Person A: “Gee, the coming attractions to that movie Ishtar looked bloody awful.”
    Panko: “You must first watch the WHOLE movie (after paying for it first) before you may judge.”
    Person A: “YOU pay, Panko. I’ll sit this one out and spend money on something I DO like.”
    Panko: “You’re an idiot! How do you know you won’t like it unless you try it?”
    Person A: The promotional sample was enough.
    Panko: “No, it wasn’t. You are a worthless, waste of life for judging a movie by its trailer, beforeb it’s released.”
    Person A: So that means you see every single movie you’ve ever seen a trailer for, even ones you didn’t like. That’s why your @ss is broke all the time. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    Fanboys are hilarious! Lol!

  • Toneloak

    That looks……well boring very boring. I can’t say anything else about this because everything was so low-res. 

    I couldn’t even sit through most of those clips it all seems safe and no fun.

  • Anonymous

    I’l remember this post when the movie opens #1 that weekend. Unless trolls go back underground when they’re proven wrong.

  • Matthew Lane

    Me too on both accounts. I want to watch the movie with as little for knowledge as possible & i too will be wearing my GL ring & answering all questions with “In Brightest Day, in Blackest Night.”

  • Matthew Lane

    “The actor lacks charisma, the CGI looks like it was done on someone’s iPhone and I really don’t think people will respond as positively to a super-hero who can make tiny catapults out of laser beams that come from his jewelery as proven comic-book-to-movie shit like “X-Men”

    I’d agree but everyone raved about Thor & as far as i could see, that didn’t only fail as a comic book movie, it also failed as a MOVIE. So this will probably be the greatest comic book movie of all time.

    Fact is that GL movie is not afraid to be what a comic book movie should be… fun. Round about time we got a comic book movie that wasn’t afraid to be a comic book movie. Fuck realism & give me a comic book movie where theres a good guy with awesome powers & a huge bad guy to beat on, add in some awesome dialogue, some sub plot & you’ve got your self a big proud comic book movie. I’m sick as shit of these cookie cutter, better add in more realism comic book movies. Stop hiding your geekyness comic book movies, the “serious” movies are never going to respect you, so you might as well be zanny.

  • Matthew Lane

    Theres a difference between not seeing a movie because you don’t think it will appeal to you & bad mouthing a movie before its even come out mate. For one no one can know if this movie is good or not, it hasn’t come out yet. It may well be shit, but one cannot judge it as shit before it has come out. At best one can judge it as a film one does not have any interest in watching.

  • Loose Nucleus

    Fair enough.  Zany comic book movies would be welcome.  But I fail to see what exactly makes this movie “fun” from the footage the studio has released.  Is it Hal’s “cookie-cutter” rule-breaking military wunderkind character?  The hilarity as he tries to discover the lantern’s secret oath/code?  The amazingly tense scene on Oa where he figures out he can fly? Perhaps the computer-effects obfuscating scene where he combats a huge cloud while people run around yelling? Doesn’t sound like a shit B-movie at all. Doesn’t remind me at all of the Fantastic Four “films”.

    Fun.

  • Loose Nucleus

    Good God, you’re the sanest one responding.

  • Matthew Lane

    Dude, he has a ring that makes mini catapults out of solid green light, & he takes orders from tiny little blue men from a far away planet, inhabited by space policemen who also possess these magic rings that make things aout of thoughts. How is that not Zanny & fun?

    As for judging the cloud monster (which i’m betting is not the main villain of the story, but the reveal at the end) as being similiar to the F4 version, isn’t that kind of like saying that you wouldn’t go to see a martian manhunter movie, because he’s green like the hulk & every hulk movie has sucked balls?

  • Eldridge

    the clips have cemented my desire to go and see this film. I am really looking forward to it.

  • Panko

    Thanks 

  • Panko

    The Thor and First class trailers weren’t any better, and I’m sure you bashed them as well 

    I’ll wait for the first reactions to the finished movie 
    If the reactions are universally bad – screw it 
    If it’s universally applauded – seeing it 
    If it’s mixed – still seeing it to make my own opinion instead of just parroting  someone else’s rant 

  • Panko

    Admit it
    you were saying these things about Thor and First Class as well 

  • Matthew Lane

    Nope, i actually though Thor was complete and utter tripe that tried to be realistic of all things. Thor suffered from “plot absense,” in which a movie exists only as a sequel to a movie or a series of movies that will be good, but needed stuff to be explained in another film to make the better film suck less.

    As for First Class i haven’t seen it yet, but it doesn’t look dreadful.

  • The Doctor

    FANTASTIC!!!!!
