He'll Leave the Light On For You...

So, we just got back from Harry Potter and the  Deathly Hallows, Part 1, and I was more excited by the trailer we saw before the film rolled. No, no. Not the Cowboys & Aliens one (although I’m getting more interested after repeated viewings(my money is on him actually being an alien who is lost, like ET, and they want him back)).  I was referring to Green Lantern, which I think is going to be awesome. Damn the rest of comic geekdom, which seems to be offering the news of a Green Lantern film with what could optimistically be called a lukewarm reception.

It feels like it has more Iron Man in it, then Daredevil.

Here is the trailer:


What do you think?

I'm still having trouble taking ryan reynolds serious in any role. However since he is now the "sexiest man alive" I should get used to it ...this movie does look like a great time though

I know what you mean. I enjoyed him in Van Wilder, which gives me hope that he will easily be able to pull of the arrogance of Hal Jordan.

I keep hearing from the women in my proximity how sexy he is as well. It is starting feel a little Johnny Depp-ish creepy.

I still think Ryan Reynolds' best performance was in Smokin' Aces. I too am excited to see him in Green Lantern. I loved the cartoon when I was a kid. Come to think of it, that might be why green is my favorite color.

I think that from what I know of Hal Jordan's character (admitedly, not much) and what I know about the Lanterns in general (a bit more, but still not much) that this might be a good adaptation.

It's kind of gutsy to pick a Silver-Age character and not go for one of the more "modern" Lanterns--especially since they seem to be sticking with the "fuck-up test-pilot" origin for H.J. They're going to update it, sure, but hopefully it'll be more gritty, and as Wa said, "more Iron Man than Daredevil."
