The 4 minutes long Wonder-Con trailer for Green Lantern is now online on Apple.
Super-hero movies usually aim for males between 11-25 years old. As we can see, the main female character is only shown in a glimpse, which means that her role is quite superficial to the story.
Bad acting face
The first trailer was terribly campy (and in a bad way). The second one tries to show how serious and epic this movie can be. It’s nice to see that it’s not exactly like Batman & Robin, but you can still pick up a few cheesy moments like Reynolds talking to the lantern (how painfully unfunny is that?).
Call me cynic, but everything is so fake looking. How far can our suspension of disbelief go if even his freaking suit is made of CGI!? It looks like Ryan Reynolds is inside a video game. I also hate how he seems to be playing the same guy in every single movie lately (Buried is one of the rare exceptions). How many superheroes can one actor portray in his career?
Overall, everyone seems to be pleased with this trailer, because it shows that behind all the “studio humor”, it’s potentially still a somewhat enjoyable action flick by the director of Casino Royale.
Personally, I’m still not impressed.
