As we get closer and closer to the premiere of one of this summer’s biggest superhero movies, a new trailer has been released for “Green Lantern” and it is 150 seconds of total awesomeness.
Now where should I start? The previous trailer showed us the first good look of Parallax but it was shown here much clearer — and it’s very impressive. Then, there were a couple of seconds where Hal was training against Sinestro and we also got to hear the amazing Michael Clarke Duncan as Kilowog — the fanboy within me went crazy (in a good way of course) when I heard him.
I notice how much they have improved the effects and everything — since Warner Bros. had thrown in an extra $9 million for the visual effects and I’m satisfied that they did that. I was a bit worried, but with the WonderCon footage and now this trailer, I feel as though I have nothing to worry about.
This was also the first time we heard a dialogue from Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller and the second I heard her – I heard a combination of Pam Grier’s Waller from “Smallville” and the unforgettable CCH Pounder’s Waller from the DC Animated Series and movies.
Last, but not least, check out the 16-second mark? I always thought Sinestro would become evil in the sequel (if this movie does well in box office, which it will) but it looks like that the yellow is coming sooner than I thought.
Martin Campbell’s “Green Lantern” — starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Clarke Duncan, Geoffrey Rush and Temuera Morrison — premieres on June 17 in 3D and 2D theaters.

Yes this trailer certainly shows us new footage and sound, parallax is shown in much more detail (Does his design remind anyone else of the way “Galactus” was shown in “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”?) and also we get a first look at the “Guardians” without whom there would be no Green Lantern Corps! Very excited to see how this movie turns out!
Pretty good new trailer.
Why are the effects so ugly?
