After a disastrous early trailer that played up the humorous aspects of the film in an attempt to sell it as another Iron Man, Warner Brothers today released this greatly improved final trailer for Green Lantern that shows off all the characters, and covers the major plot points. This production is looking better and better each time a new trailer or TV spot hits, yet it’s still extremely difficult to tell if mainstream audiences are going to flock to a movie about Ryan Reynolds teaming up with a menagerie of bizarre aliens with magical green rings to battle a cosmic entity composed of pure fear and Peter Sarsgaard with an enlarged cranium. We’ll find out on June 17th!
Joss Whedon is one of the most awesome people on the planet Earth. Why? Check out what he had to say when he was told of the Warner Bros. planned reboot of Buffy The Vampire Slayer:
Warner Brothers and Atlas Entertainment announced plans today to remake the original 1992 Buffy The Vampire Slayer film. The producers of the reboot say they have come up with “An exciting idea on how to update Buffy” (translation: we’re gonna make it like Twilight!), and will not feature the character in her high-school cheerleading days.
You know, Some creations are intrinsically tied to their creators, and Buffy is certainly one of them. In fact, I can’t really think of another character, or group of characters, that owe so much of what makes them special to one writer. Joss Whedon embodies the voice, tone, and spirit of the Buffy-verse. Without him, it’s just some girl running around stabbing vampires.
