No matter how much you want to see some movies, they still wind up being awful. The cast and crew don’t set out to make them awful, but somehow, between commissioning the script and the final edit, something goes horribly wrong – and we pay our hard-earned money to end up disappointed. In 2011, the following ten films were my biggest disappointments.
Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern hits the key moments of the character’s origin, mixes in a couple of classic villains, the right girlfriend and sets up at least two potential sequels – but fails as the promised ‘cosmic adventure.’
Every Hollywood Summer flick needs to have a game attached to it. Green Lantern is no different. Featuring the voice and likeness of Ryan Reynolds (in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions), Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters allows players to assume the role of Hal Jordan to battle the Manhunters—a once noble android police force who are now bent on destroying the Green Lantern Corps. More screenshots after break!
Attendees of WonderCon got a look at fourteen minutes of Green Lantern footage. Here’s a look at the four minutes that have been posted to the movie’s official website – and made available online. It looks pretty amazing. Check it out.
Warner Premiere and DC Comics brings Green Lantern fans the antincipated trailer to Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. According to IMDB, the story “explores the origins of the Green Lantern Corps, including the first ring wielders” and it’s supposed to include not one but six interlocking stories about six individual green lanterns. Sounds epic doesn’t it? Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is co-directed by Chris Berkeley, Lauren Montgomery, and Jay Oliva. This time instead of Christopher Meloni doing the voice over for Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, the actor doing the voice over for Hal Jordan/Green Lantern is Nathan Fillion who’s most reccent work is playing Richard Castle on the tv sereis Castle. I personally enjoyed Green Lantern: First Flight when it was released in 2009 and I’m looking forward to Emerald Knights. Check out the trailer below and enjoy:
I’ve always been a big fan of Green Lantern so I’m really curious to see what an eventual big screen version will look like. I like the casting of Ryan Reynolds, I’m not being biased because I’ve met him at several times throughout the last 6 years, but I think he’ll be good in the role, although I see him more as Kyle Raynor and not Hal Jordan. Anyway, these days if you are going to be a major Hollywood tent pole you have to also have a big game attached. The folks behind this summer’s upcoming G.I. Joe game and Silent Hill: Homecoming, Double Helix has been tapped by Warner Brothers to create the Green Lantern Game. I’ll hold judgment until I play the G.I. Joe game in August.
This is one of the greatest fan trailers ever. I found it at the Ifanboy.com website, someone put a lot of thought and effort into this, Warner Brothers should hire whoever did this to be involved in their rumored Green Lantern movie. You would think Green Lantern would be one of the easiest characters to bring to the big screen. But whoever created this trailer, bravo!
