Synopsis: 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 called Parallax 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.
While the new trailer certainly shares some footage from the Wondercon reel that showed up online last month, the new effects shots look polished and the overall story of Green Lantern is better defined here. Let’s face it, this is a movie about a bunch of aliens dressed in green who police the universe. It was never going to look gritty and realistic like a Christopher Nolan superhero film.
With that in mind, the stuff between Sinestro, Kilowog, Tomar-Re and Hal not only looks solid, but is totally engaging because of the voices, performances and interaction. Plus, the brief glimpses we get of the assumed third act where Hal and the Lanterns come to Earth look beyond epic.
Also, it was smart to make this trailer a complete 180 from the first teaser we got which focused more on the relationship between Hal and Carol. In fact the only real goofiness we get is the scene we’ve already seen of Hal trying to figure out the Lantern Oath.
