Green Lantern trailer arrives

Official promo leaks online

Green Lantern trailer

At the weekend we brought you some promo footage of Green Lantern from the US show Entertainment Tonight - now the trailer that those clips came from is available online.

The ET footage did not impress, and unfortunately neither does this; the tone seems off, as do the effects, the acting, dialogue and editing.

You can see the trailer below;

In a word; clunky.

The trailer seems rushed, and in a rush, insecure and uncertain. Blake Lively, who scored rave reviews in The Town and is being considered Batman 3, is all over the place. Reynolds doesn't seem sure whether he's doing a comedy or not...

...and let's not even talk about the suit.

The film is still months away from release, but based on this evidence there is a lot of work yet to be done on both the film and our now low, low expectations.

Green Lantern is released June 17 2011

Green Lantern? Or red faces for all involved? Let us know!

      It looks awful, really, really awful! No end of reshots or editing is going to save that one.

      Looks horrible & it's their own fault, they hired Serena Van Der Woodsen.

      It does look a little poorer than I'd hoped, it seems to have used the same special effects we saw in the fake trailers

      I stopped the trailer half way. Doesn't look to have much going for it. Pass.

      To be honest I think what we see of these cheesy special effects really captures the spirit of the Green Lantern comics pretty well. I don't know what everyone expects from this film but please try and remember the source material. It's about a guy who gains powers from a green alien ring! Because it's based on a comic a lot of people seem to be expecting another Dark Knight. It's Green Lantern. And I'm actually interested to see it. I don't mean that I have low expectations but I'm not expecting a cinematic masterpiece. Turn off brain. Watch bright colours and explosions.

      I'm sorry, but what on earth were you all expecting??? It's GREEN LANTERN! It's starring RYAN REYNOLDS! Looks to be exactly on par with most superhero movies out there. Looks like a laugh, I'd watch it.
