Green Lantern new trailer

GreenLantern.jpgA new trailer has arrived for Green Lantern, the latest superhero film, and the trailer really has moved forward in leaps and bounds. While some of the CG still looks very CG in comparison to the CG-real world mix, this trailer is much more epic and drives forward with a strong pace.

I was expecting a much more light hearted film from the Green Lantern, this trailer is telling me I could be wrong.

The story is something we've covered before and isn't too hard to understand, as you watch the trailer you can see the key beats of most superhero films being ticked off, however there's a lot that the Green Lantern has to offer that is different.

Martin Cambell is directing Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Temuera Morrison, Geoffrey Rush, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett, and the awesome Michael Clarke Duncan.

Here's the plot for Green Lantern:

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 (Ryan Reynolds).

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.

Sounds rather epic, and the trailer for the Green Lantern is delivering something very similar too. You can see that trailer over at Yahoo Movies in Quicktime high definition, just roll over the HD button, or right here:

Well, what do you think? It does look better than the last, and we get to see more of the world and the lead character being put in peril, but how will the film turn out? Is it going to be this dramatic?
