The first trailer for DC and Warner Bros.’ live-action Green Lantern film has hit the web. Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, test pilot and man without fear – or rather man who is able to overcome fear as it was later retconned. The film is being directed by Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, Casino Royale) and also stars Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard and Tim Robbins.

You can see the trailer in 1080p over at Apple.
I have to say that I’m a little worried about Blake Lively’s performance; every line she delivers in the trailer is wooden and stilted. Mark Strong looks great as Sinestro though, in fact all of the stuff on Oa and out in space looks great. While Ryan Reynolds looks to have captured the essence of Hal Jordan, though I’m still not sold on the computer generated Lantern suit, it may be too early to pass judgement.
What do you think?
You’ll be able to see the trailer on the big screen this week attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.
Green Lantern is due in theatres June 17th, 2011.
