We’ve got news for you on several sequels today, some more realistic than others. On the “coming soon to a theater near you” end, there’s a new synopsis for G.I. Joe: Retaliation; meanwhile, projects like Gremlins 3 and Pineapple Express 2 have been rumored for ages but as far as we can tell they’re still just a twinkle in some studio exec’s eye. After the jump:

  • Warner Bros. registers domains for Green Lantern 2 and Gremlins 3
  • Seth Rogen discusses the possibility of a Pineapple Express sequel
  • G.I. Joe: Retaliation gets an official synopsis
  • Paramount moves forward on a Mission: Impossible sequel and Top Gun 2

‘Green Lantern’ – What Did You Think?

I’m a huge fan of Martin Campbell. This is the guy who successfully rebooted the Bond franchise (twice), and brought a kickass version of Zorro to the big screen. A superhero film based on Green Lantern seemed like a bit of a stretch, but with Campbell’s action sensibilities and his ability to portray characters broadly yet compellingly, I was more than willing to give it a chance.

Green Lantern finally hits theaters today. Is it an action adventure on par with Casino Royale? Can Ryan Reynolds hold together an entire superhero film? Hit the jump and share your thoughts. Assume SPOILERS lie after the jump.

In yet another sign that audiences are tiring of shelling out a few extra bucks at the theater for the latest crappy studio-enforced 3D upconversion, early sales data show that 2D ticket sales are outpacing those of 3D tickets for Green Lantern and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

A slew of new clips were released over the weekend, offering better looks at possible future summer blockbusters Green Lantern, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and 30 Minutes or Less. Whether you want to see the gorgeous world of Oa, an evil alien robot copy machine, or Aziz Ansari molding the future leaders of tomorrow, we’ve got something for you. (If you want none of those things, though, you’re out of luck.) See the clips after the jump.

Greg Berlanti is the co-writer/producer on The Green Lantern and The Flash, the latter of which he’s also a potential director. He recently directed his second film, Life as We Know It, and has been making the press rounds to promote it. Naturally, everyone is more interested to learn about his work on Green Lantern and Flash than Hollywood’s latest Katherine Heigl romantic comedy, so he’s being pressed for as much as info as he’s willing to divulge.

Some of what he had to say might surprise you. Read More »

This past summer, Warner Bros. hired on the screenwriters of The Green Lantern (Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim) to pen drafts for The Flash and a Green Lantern sequel. This says a lot about how satisfied the studio must be with their work, since Green Lantern hasn’t even hit theaters yet.

So where do these screenplays stand right now? One of the writers, Marc Guggenheim (who has also worked on many Marvel comics, in addition to The Flash), has weighed in on the situation, sharing some interesting details about additional sequels in the process. Read More »


One of the other notable things Warner Bros head Alan Horn said at the ShoWest presentation today involved how the studio hopes to fill the void that will be left by the studio’s most successful franchise. After Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II hits theaters in July 2011, that will conclude the biggest box office franchise in cinema history. How does Warner Bros hope to fill the hole left by this profitable series?

Casting news on Martin Campbell’s The Green Lantern continues to crystallize. While we had heard a rumor awhile back that Jackie Earle Haley might be in talks to play Green Lantern’s arch-nemesis, Sinestro, it now looks as though that isn’t, nor was it ever, the case.

MTV recently caught up with Campbell while during a junket for his upcoming thriller, Edge of Darkness, and popped the question to Campbell about Sinestro. According to Campbell:

No, that’s completely wrong…In fact, we’re in negotiations with Mark Strong to play Sinestro…He’s not only a wonderful actor, but he looks like Sinestro. If you look up old pictures of Sinestro, he’s very like him. The Jackie Earle Haley thing, somebody told me about it this morning; I had never heard it before in my life.

Another Green Lantern Fan Made Movie Trailer


Earlier this year, we featured an awesome fan made Green Lantern movie trailer, which was sort of a mash-up, combining scenes and sequences from a bunch of different movies with composited special effects. /Film reader movieboy has sent us another fan made Green Lantern movie trailer, this time a teaser trailer. This one isn’t nearly as good, buts more of a traditional fan film — shot and edited independently. I thought it was good enough to pass along. Check it out after the jump.

Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC: Deadpool and Green Lantern

Ever since Apple began airing those Mac vs. PC ads, YouTube has been full of parodies. One of the Mac vs. PC parodies we’ve been tracking over the last 2 years (has it really been that long? Yes, it has) is the Marvel vs. DC spots that someone created using action figures. The first set featured Spider-Man and Superman (Spider-Man 3 vs. Superman Returns), the second featured Batman and Iron Man (The Dark Knight vs Iron Man), the third set featured Hellboy vs. Batman, Iron Man and The Hulk, and the fourth featured Wolverine vs. Rorschach (X-Men Origins: Wolverine vs. Watchmen).

The latest edition features Green Lantern and Deadpool discussing the issue of Ryan Reynolds playing both characters on the big screen, and how that might effect the future of both superhero franchises. Watch the video after the jump.
