If you have a Nintendo 3DS, a 3D trailer for Green Lantern is available on the eShop.
Check out over 25 brand new images of the Green Lantern Corps members, many of which are the first official look at how they'll appear in the movie rather than the promo art we've seen in the past:
An interesting look at box-office predictions for Green Lantern:
Let's keep the movie bashing to a minimum please. This is actually pretty interesting stuff.
WB's dreaming big... a little too big. I expect Green Lantern to be a hit, but there's no humanly possible way that it's going to live up to the studio's expectations.
I'm looking forward to this movie. I think Green Lantern deserves more exposure.
My dad and I were just talking over the weekend about how much is riding on Green Lantern, in regards to opening the door (or shutting it further) for eventual big screen appearances by other DC characters. We're especially hopeful GL's success will light a fire under someone to finally get The Flash on the big screen.
I also want this to do good. If it succeeds, WB/DC will finally start work other heroes like the Flash and prove that a comic book movie doesn't need to be like the Dark Knight. If it doesn't, expect David S. Goyer to get more work from DC.
Here an new Green Lantern "Critics Review" TV Spot!:
I was wondering why there were no "Rotten Tomatoes" reviews, and I guess this is the reason. According to this Green Lantern was not screened in advance for critics, in fact it's being held so it will be just late enough that most print outlets will miss the deadline for their weekend movie review sections. I'm sorry but that does not scream "confidence in our product" to me.
Shawn, for the last time, if they had confidence in their product, it wouldn't have taken so long to get any DC superhero movie that wasn't Batman made. They didn't have confidence from the beginning.
Did we talk about this before? I was referring to this film only, I think DC and Warner Bros. certainly do have confidence in their product in general, they have the most iconic superheroes and they know it. It's just that most filmmakers are very clumsy about bringing that to the screen.
I'm still going to see it, though, even if it is bad. I see almost every superhero movie in the theater. Yeah, I'm that kind of sucker.
Also, those "reviews" in that Youtube spot are just blurbs from industry insiders. I couldn't find any of those reviews online anywhere.
I did find this one, though. It's a very negative 2 of 5 stars review from Time Out.
Maybe it's another SFX issue. That has been something that happened to the movie. I hope it's that. I want this movie to be good, I've waited years for this moment and I don't want this to be in the same bin as Daredevil & Catwoman.
I don't think so, because they screened it for industry insiders and distributors, that's where all those tweets about it come from. Review embargoes and late screenings are pretty common tactics for bad movies. I'm not saying Green Lantern will be a bad movie, I don't know. Just that the studio has chosen tactics that are often used for bad movies.
I have a couple of free tickets from a blunder that happened when I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 4. I have a feeling this movie will be good, but at least either way I'll be covered.
Please do not compare Daredevil to Catwoman. It's NOTHING like that movie, and the Director's Cut is better.
I thought Daredevil, yes the director's cut, was really bad. Like, super bad. Especially if you're a fan of the Frank Miller comics, they get just about everything you could get wrong wrong. Put me down with Don as hoping Green Lantern is at least better than that.
Yea the DD Director's Cut makes a horrendous movie into just a regular bad movie. As for GL..yea that doesn't inspire confidence. Hopefully WB is worrying over nothing and that the reviews end up pretty good.
Mark Strong talks about a hint of a after credit scene in Green Lantern:
Here one of the first review of Green Lantern to hit the net:
Village Voice review:
Yikes! Total Film is usually a little picky, but I was surely expecting 3 stars at least.
Village Voice is a little more positive, but where's the photo from? It's an entirely different costume.
LOL! That's the fake photo some fan created last year. So much for researching the subject of your review.
It was still really negative, though. When you get the words "soullessly cycles," "nonsensical," "boilerplate," and "ADD" in a review, it's usually not a good thing. About the only things they liked were Sarsgaard's campy performance, the Parallax FX, and Reynold's abs.
It's funny that both reviews used the same "light up your life" line, though. I think that'll probably end up on about 30 percent of reviews.
