Check This Out: Epic Theater Standee for Warner Bros 'Green Lantern'
by Alex Billington
June 7, 2011
With a few weeks left until Green Lantern hits theaters, Warner Bros is going all out with TV spots galore, marketing promos everywhere, and insane amounts of posters/banners. We've got another, but fans listen up, I've got a mission for you! There's a cool theater standee (those giant cardboard promo displays at your cinema) for Green Lantern that's been seen online (via SlashFilm) but hasn't been photographed in person yet as far as we know. So, we want you to go out and find this in a theater, and send a photo back to us! We've seen lots of posters like this, but I still think it's great to find Green Lantern promo stuff out there.
I'm still excited to see this! Let us know if you find this and send any photos to movies[at]firstshowing.net.
A test pilot (Ryan Reynolds) is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping the peace within the universe.
Green Lantern is directed by veteran New Zealand filmmaker Martin Campbell, of Defenseless, GoldenEye, The Mask of Zorro, Vertical Limit, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness previously. The script was written by Greg Berlanti ("Everwood", "Eli Stone"), Michael Goldenberg (Peter Pan, Order of the Phoenix), Michael Green ("Everwood", "Kings") & comic book writer Marc Guggenheim ("FlashForward") and is based on the DC Comics superhero. Warner Bros is bringing Green Lantern to theaters in 3D everywhere on June 17th!

It IS epic. But the movie itself looks like crap.

no, your choice in words is good. but the movie still is an epic FAIL. Reynolds is Deadpool incarnate.

i'm not actually a comic Book fan but i'm a geek for the movies and have been for a long while. but there is something about the Story of green lantern that just isn't appealing to me. the other world Ryan Reynolds travels to (excuse my ignorance for not knowing the name) looks amazing don't get me wrong, the graphics etc. but quite simply it doesn't interest me in the same way that X-Men First Class and things seem to. That being said i wasn't a Thor fan until i saw the film and they had a nice balance between worlds (as referenced in your Branagh interview spendidly). I'll save final judgement obviously until i've seen this but i don't think the story is hugely strong as a film not as an adaption. I may be proved wrong.

Am I the only one that thinks this movie looks terrible?

No, you are not alone. Many of us think the film looks horrid.

I saw this at my local AMC when I went to watch X-men First Class last Saturday. It was a huge-ass standout poster! Hopefully the movie will be 'epic' as well! LOL! Damn! If you had made it known earlier I could have snagged a picture.... I will try get one this weekend when I head over to watch Super 8.

Wow, does this movie ever look awful. Like "Moms Need Mars" vs "The Green Lantern". And watch, it's suckness will do more at the box-office than "X-Men: First Class". !! Thank you very much U.S. audiences. You make me sick!

The movie is going to kick ass.
Dhiram on Jun 8, 2011
I'm kinda fed-up with all the GL-hype-CGI looks terrible-Deadpool-Ryan's mask-DC vs Marvel vs Comic books Fanboys vs Cinema fanboys... bring the f****** movie and make all the complains stop once and for all.
Manuel on Jun 8, 2011
This movie is gonna flop, sadly.
Davide Coppola on Jun 8, 2011
Well, at last, we can only say, the trailers and the first look was a sadly way to fuel the hype for this film.
Manuel on Jun 8, 2011
Well it looks like they finally got one thing right at least. From this poster, it looks like they finally fixed the mask around his eyes. +1 on this movie looks horrible.

I made one of these at work today. Took me 4 hours, was a right pain in the backside. It's huge though and very impressive!
