In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy calledParallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
I’ve never been a massive fan of the Green Lantern or any DC characters for that matter (excluding batman of course). And from the looks of the first trailer it didn’t get me any more interested in the story. But as time has gone on and seeing more and more stills and then ultimately the new trailer (as seen below) I am actually getting quite excited. Though the CGI has improved since the first trailer It still seems a bit ropey to me, and a film relying strongly on its effects they need to polish it a bit more before I can be swept into this epic story.
