It’s only a couple of weeks now until Green Lantern debuts on the big screen. Thor impressed and entertained for the most part and now X-Men:First Class is attracting sterling reviews as well. Can Green Lantern overcome the relatively low brand recognition and inherent silliness factor and make a strong showing?
In what looks like an effort to reassure us that it is a proper film, this featurette gives us a bunch of footage with which we are mostly pretty familiar and mixes it with contributions from Ryan Reynolds and the production crew, as well as a bit of on-set footage. There is a bit more of Parallax on show than before, with a couple of nice shots of people being absorbed/disintegrated, but it remains to be seen whether a malevolent cloud can be more effectively presented than the slightly lacklustre effort for Galactus from 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
No doubt someone out there can explain to me the myriad ways in which the two are nothing alike, information for which I would be genuinely grateful. In the meantime, enjoy the featurette here or check it out below, which, in all honesty, is beginning to make something of a believer out of an erstwhile cynic.
