Sinestro - Green Lantern

"United, we are still invincible." Warner Bros has released another set of character posters on Yahoo for DC Comics' Green Lantern movie, this time featuring two aliens from the Green Lantern Corps. On the first poster below is Kilowog, the big alien creature who happens to be Hal Jordan's trainer on Oa. We recently learned he'll be voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan. Below that you'll see Mark Strong with a pink face as Sinestro, another one of the key Corps members on Oa. In related news, Green Lantern got an extra $9 million boost in their budget to finish more VFX the last few months. It's definitely looking better every day.

Check out both new posters below and click on either for the full-size on Yahoo. Can't wait for the summer!

Green Lantern Poster - Kilowog

Green Lantern Poster - Sinestro

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!

I know nothing about the Green Lantern story/lore/universe. So basically I admit my ignorance. However, with that said, I feel like everything about this movie looks cartoony, and campy. These posters look like they are advertising a 3D animated movie.

I agree feels like a animated film.

I don't know how you see that... I mean, the characters aren't dark and gritty like in Batman, but they're glossy comic book characters who are part of a Corps in the universe that uses green light energy to fight evil. To me this seems exactly like it should look!

Alex Billington on Apr 26, 2011


Jace is right on about this. This posters are tired and dull -- we've seen this all before.

I'm still gonna see it, its just I had the same feeling with felt like an animated movie.

Xerxexx on Apr 26, 2011


Yeah, like I said above I'm definitely not a Green Lantern expert by any means. This is just the vibe I have been getting from all the footage and artwork i've seen for this movie so far. But in the end, nobody can make judgment until the credits roll.

I'm not a GL fan or expert, by the way, but this movie has a lot of 3D CGI animation and for sure the looks of the posters are for a 3D (most of it) animated movie. But, I must desagree when you say it looks campy or cartoony. I think they look great. It's a science-fiction-fantasy movie with tons of CGI-epicness to kick-our-butts-off-the-theater. If you want to see something more deep and philosofical drama, Fast Five is your movie, man... (Just kidding). It's just my opinion. Cheers.

A comic book movie that feels too cartoony and like.. a comic book..? You're fucking hilarious. Gee, I wonder how else would they make the Green Lantern movie if it not were for animation tech. Boggles the fucking mind I tell you. Cardboard boxes maybe? Tinfoil hats perhaps?

Now, now, need for that much vitriol. 😎 But I agree with you--honestly, the only way to really pull off a proper GL film would be to use CGI--a lot of it. It's just that animatronic puppetry and prosthetic makeup and detailed models--the whole "practical effects" shebang--can only go so far. With something like GL, one needs a lot more tools. Then again, ask many of the people complaining about the "cartoony" look of the film really understand what goes into the creation of CGI? And how many of them have even cracked open an issue of CINEFEX? It seems that not many of them have. Cheers.

Lmao, Jesus...But you know we are in America so freedom of speech (in this case) opinion is permissible. It's a space setting comic book story yada yada yada. What do people expect it to look? How if they were in control of this film make the posters look differently? This film carries a heavy dose of CGI it's just mandatory. There hasn't been a comic book movie made that requires such so on what grounds are people basing their opinions (expertise) on?

Sorry that you feel that way my friend. I will not pretend to know a lot about CGI as I have never done any extensive work, and I know nothing about Green Lantern. My comments are based solely on gut reaction. Also, no matter how much CGI a movie requires, you should never start production unless the technology/talent is there to due the property justice. These posters, to me, look as if they are ads for a Saturday morning cartoon on Fox.

Jace on Apr 26, 2011


Jace, I understand what you're saying, but I also gotta disagree with you. You did say that you know nothing about GL--don't feel bad, because I'm quite sure that a lot of folks have no clue who he is. But: "Also, no matter how much CGI a movie requires, you should never start production unless the technology/talent is there to due the property justice." be frank, the tech is there to make this film--which is why it would have been impossible to do it years ago. Also, a little note about CGI--it's usually tweaked up to the film's release. If you want to know more about CGI in films, I'd suggest grabbing a copy of CINEFEX magazine or checking their online site (note: this isn't snark on my part. CINEFEX is _the_ magazine to read about visual effects, and while my own experience with CGI is limited as well, you can learn a helluva lot from reading it.) "But in the end, nobody can make judgment until the credits roll." I'm in complete agreement with you on this. We'll have to wait until June 17th to find out....

As a fan of the Green Lantern Mythos, I suggest you give it a chance. It might be a little much at first but the characters and scale of story are trullt worthwhile.

Guest on Apr 26, 2011


Agreed. I mean, it's a full-fledged GL film!! How incredible is that? Plus, I'd say that the look of the film fits the galaxy-spanning space opera flavor of the GREEN LANTERN comics (at least, from the Silver Age onward).

I don't understand why are you saying this is campy. This looks just epic to me. Bring it on.

Manuel on Apr 26, 2011


Manuel, it's just someone else's POV--not much you can do about, I guess. I just wish it wasn't tainted with the standard dollop of cynicism that seems to be the only thing the Internet can muster these days.

Sinestro...Frame it, I Want It!

PyroDark on Apr 26, 2011


I can't wait to see Sinestro all decked out in his yellow uniform......

Thanos on Apr 27, 2011


damn Sinestro suit looks awesome!

A5J4DX on Apr 26, 2011


These posters look incredibly bad.

Rp1n on Apr 27, 2011


Yeah the suits still look fake, but seriously they do look bad, WB knows this to that's why they just threw more money to the CGI dept.

Anonymous on Apr 27, 2011


Er, Jimmy? Sorry, but I'm afraid you're in error. Check this article from VARIETY for the real story. And nowhere in this article do they mention ANYTHING about the costumes. Granted, it's easy to assume that it's for the costumes. However, it isn't the truth. The VARIETY article is here: Cheers.

Anonymous on Apr 27, 2011


Oh so the suits are not part of the CGI that needs fixed because that wasn't mentioned either, it just says they got more money to fix the CGI and the suits are CGI, so nice try but again. Suits still look fake, and WB knows this that's why they are pushing money to fix the poor quality CGI.

Anonymous on Apr 27, 2011


Hmmm....and I suppose you were there checking it out. Jeez....there is a helluva lot more CGI in the film than just the suits. And again--did you read the article? Judging from your reply--you didn't.

Anonymous on Apr 27, 2011


Yep I read and understood it THE CGI SUCKS AND NEEDS FIXED EVEN THE STUDIO AGREES! herp derp! But anyway the suits are so fake looking that even Lee press on nails are impressed, LOL

Well at least it doesn't look like another Daredevil. Although I hope they threw enough money at the scriptwriter as well to make all the CG worthwhile.
