New, Boring Green Lantern Photo of Ryan Reynolds and Peter Sarsgaard
Posted 01.19.11 by Ryan
Outside of the first-look pics of Warner Bros.' upcoming adaptation of Green Lantern, based on the DC Comics character, the promotional images released for the movie have left a lot to be desired. The three still images released in December were nothing more than stills grabbed from the trailer released a month earlier. They were followed by two characters images of the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps, fan favorite Tomar-Re and mentor-turned-nemesis Sinestro (also taken from the trailer).
The latest image comes from Cinemateaser and, while it was refreshingly not taken from the trailer, only depicts a plainclothes Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds). He's brandishing a glass at some kind of evening function and standing next to a pre-transformation Dr. Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard), before he is exposed to a meteor and has his brain expand in size. A blurry Tim Robbins also appears in the background as Senator Hammond, Hector's father.
Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) directed Green Lantern, which opens June 17. Mark Strong, Blake Lively and Angela Bassett also star.
