I tried to not watch this until I saw Harry Potter tonight. I wanted to see it first at midnight on the big screen. I have failed. Share in my failure, will you?
Though, to be fair, it is a somewhat glorious failure. This trailer is pretty good, showing off Oa and the Green Lantern Corps. in all their glory. We see such fan favorite characters as Kilowog and Tomar-Re. Also seen is the Green Lantern Corps. most powerful member, Sinestro, before his fall from grace. Yeah, spoilers, a guy named Sinestro turns out to be a bad guy. Speaking of bad guys, we get to see Hector Hammond in all his big headed glory. He looks ridiculous. This is unavoidable. We also get the first glimpse of Hal’s power ring in action, making fists and stuff. Its all pretty neat. Unfortunately there seems to be some unfinished effects work shown in the trailer as well. At least, I hope that its unfinished. The suit could definitely use some more work. Maybe making it entirely CGI wasn’t the brightest of ideas? I dunno. But check out the trailer, as well as some new promo art, below to see for yourself.
Green Lantern comes out June 17, 2011.
