A new GREEN LANTERN trailer has been released that should be titled “Green Lantern Lore 101”, for it explains Oa, Guardians, rings, and …. yellow powers and all that stuff.
As someone who has never been that into Green Lantern, I learned something.
Is this trailer really being shown in MOVIE THEATERS? In front of movies? It gives me a dire feeling. It’s like…a LORD OF THE RINGS trailer that explains how in the Beginning Eru created the music of the Ainur, as is told in the Ainulindalë.
What it does not say is “this is an entertaining yarn about a cocky test pilot who gets in over his head.”
And they say Wonder Woman is too complicated!!!
That said, the CGI looks quite impressive.
What do you think? Does this trailer make you want to go see GREEN LANTERN if you weren’t already?
