Green Lantern Extended TV Trailer Green Lanterns 2 Minute Extended TV Trailer

If you were one of the many moviegoers impressed by the revamped Green Lantern footage shown at WonderCon, you have a lot to be excited about. Not only has Warner Bros. and their overworked visual effect houses leaped light years ahead in improving the heavily CGI visuals of Green Lantern since the film’s first trailer released, but they’ve just been given a $9 million boost in budget to make sure they’re done right in time for theatrical release.

Now that’s dedication and confidence on the part of Warner Bros. for director Martin Campbell’s summer blockbuster and something we can all be happy about. To celebrate, we have an extended version of the Green Lantern TV trailer released last week.

If you’ve been keeping up with the TV spots and trailers this far for our first introduction to the Green Lantern Corps, you won’t find anything here entirely new. Instead, the extended TV trailer takes the 90 seconds from before and fills in a few of the gaps with extended scenes we’ve seen before. Regardless, it’s a cool trailer which holds back on the comedy and focuses on the epic scale and dark tones of the film.

The sounds that kick in with the subtitles at the 10-second mark are straight from the Transformers trailers, no?

DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. needs to hit a home run with Green Lantern with it representing the starting point for their tentpole franchise for years to come. Harry Potter is done as of this summer so it’s time for DC superhero movies going forward. Green Lantern is the most special effects intensive film of the year and if they are not able to perfect that element of it, they’d be in rough shape in a highly competitive summer of genre films and it wouldn’t be a good way to go into San Diego Comic-Con where they’ll begin hyping up the next DC film installments (The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel and Justice League).

Green Lantern is directed by Martin Campbell and stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Temuera Morrison, Geoffrey Rush, Tim Robbins, Michael Clarke Duncan and Angela Bassett. The film’s tie-in video game, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, releases June 7th.

Green Lantern hits 2D and 3D theaters on June 17, 2011.
