Last week Internet users were given the opportunity to watch the first six minutes of Zack Snyder’s new film Sucker Punch. Cynical critics might argue that this move was to counteract all the negative and rather poor reviews the movie received on opening weekend.
In a similar move, but one well before it’s release date, Warner Brother’s have posted up four minutes of exclusive footage from their new superhero movie The Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds. Apparently its an abridged version of ten minutes of footage which was recently screened at Wonder Con.
We still think it looks like a live-action episode of Ben 10.
Here’s a first look at director Martin Campbell’s take on the super hero Green Lantern. It stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, a fighter pilot, who encounters an alien who passes Hal a special ring which grants him superpowers and a cheesy CGI super hero costume, with bulges in all the right places.
Look at the size of that boy's heed! It's like an orange on a toothpick.
Now watch the video below. A trailer edited together by an avid fan of The Green Lantern over a year ago with Nathan Fillion in the lead role with spliced together sequences from a host of films. Is it just us or is the tone of this trailer a hundred times better than that of Martin Campbell’s film? Don’t pretend you couldn’t really care because the day this world stops caring about men in tight fitting spandex is the day the world will stop spinning.
