Ryan Reynolds looks good in tights as he flexes his muscles in a new “Green Lantern” trailer that provides an overview of the latest comic book superhero movie. Get ready for another new galactic order of good guys and an evil parasite.
The movie is about a vast, mysterious, elite force under the guardianship of protectors of peace and justice, known as the Green Lantern Corps.
When a new evil parasite called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, Hal Jordan, the first human ever selected for the elite group, is called on to battle evil Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard).
Hal hardly seems up to the job, but he trains with the Corps and gets mentored by Tomar-Re (Rush), who tells him the secret to the ring.
“The ring turns thoughts into reality. Its limits are only what you can imagine,” he says.
Before long, Hal has polished his skills and he’s ready for a galactic confrontation with the evil force.
The film also stars Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Jon Tenney, Academy Award nominees Angela Bassett and Michael Clarke Duncan and Academy Award winners Tim Robbins and Geoffrey Rush, according to Warner Bros.
Martin Campbell directs from a screenplay based on the DC Comics series.
The film will be released in 3D and widescreen on June 17.
