I should have known that Green Lantern would make enough money to get a sequel. The movie was raw ass. Not offensive, maddening, sickening bullshit like Transformers 3. Rather it was unforgettable. A flaccid romp through a CGI nightmare. Fuck that movie, and fuck that it is getting a sequel.
Who am I to get all high and mighty about a comic book movie being fucking dumb! I disagree sir. When Caff-Pow! isn’t excited for a flick, you know it’s bad news. Fuck Green Lantern, man. I’m going to see it because I’m part of the problem, but I ain’t excited. The Onion in this video perfectly captures the ‘uh sure, I’m seeing it. ‘Cause uh stuff.’ vibe surrounding the flick. It’s awesome.
The Green Lantern hype train is beginning to kick into overdrive. A new extended TV spot that premiered during American Idol and 30 Rock on Thursday evening had itself some new footage.
Hit the jump to check it out.
My excitement for the Green Lantern went up a good deal after witnessing the footage from Wondercon. I ain’t dumb enough to deny that it may be simply the product of a well-cut trailer, corralling the dopest contents of the movie into four minutes.
But let me be excited!
Today, two character posters for the movie were released on the movie’s Facebook page.
Apparently the reaction at Wondercon to ten mintues of Green Lantern footage was so hot that WB decided to drop some of it on our collective asses. They’ve released four minutes of the footage, and you can check it out after the jump.
Jeff Robinov came out this week and said that WB is working like motherfuckers on a Justice League of America movie. Okay. I’m already skeptical. The assumed idea would be that like Marvel is doing, WB would collate all of their singular big name stars like Van Wilder and Henry Cackle or whatever into one juggernaut flick with insane marketability.
Zack Snyder says motherfucking NAY!, to this occuring.
The Green Lantern Trailer is finally upon us, after last week’s cockteasing from Entertainment Tonight. I’ll divide the trailer into two distinct halves.
The first is Ryan Reynolds playing Ryan Reynolds. Not only is Hal Jordan apparently written like another Reynolds douchebag cast-off, which he isn’t in the comic books, but Reynolds himself is just doing his same old thing. He isn’t inhabiting a character, he’s draping his schtick over a mythos. Let me be clear, the parts where he’s acting fucking suck, and my dick shrinks a little bit.
Also, Blake Lively, I’m glad to see you dispell any sort of notion that you could act that you may have given us in The Town.
The second is that the epic bullshit that goes down in the trailer really snagged my geek balls. Like, I dug on it a lot. The whole flying through space thing? Sweet. Seeing Oa? Sweet.
Unfortunately, Reynolds Being Reynolds As Jordan has smashed apart any sort of expectations I may have had for the movie. I’m hoping I’m wrong, and that as he matures through the movie he’ll become something resembling anything other than Hey Guys I’m Ryan Reynolds.

Entertainment Tonight is going to drop the first Green Lantern trailer on our asses next Tuesday. This is ahead of it premiering with part one of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. Well!, being in the time we live in, there’s a teaser trailer for the trailer that is going to air on Entertainment Weekly. A box inside a box inside a box inside a box, or something?
Off the cuff impressions? I didn’t like Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern when he was cast. And I dig the dude in the right role. This teaser? It’s miniscule, and far from enough to judge with, but since I’m going to anyways? Not digging his delivery. It isn’t Hal Jordan, it’s Ryan Reynolds playing Ryan Reynolds, as he is almost always wont to do.
