PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Reckless test pilot Hal Jordan is granted an alien ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers that inducts him into an intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps.
Around June 2006, Robert Smigel had completed a script of the film, which was a comedy-adventure and was to star Jack Black as Jud Plato, an original Lantern whose bravery was defined by eating brains on a TV show. However, the studio dropped the script idea due to extremely negative feedback from fans.
Billions of years ago, a race of immortals harnessed the most powerful force in existence: the emerald energy of willpower. These immortals, the Guardians of the Universe, built a world from where they could watch over all of existence: the planet ...
The Milky Way galaxy is depicted as a spiral galaxy, however it is actually a barred spiral galaxy.
The opening title is an energy construct formed from many Green Lantern rings.
An Extended Cut is available on the Blu-ray release, which runs about 10 minutes longer than the theatrical cut. It restores back the 1993 prologue, especially detailing events leading to Martin Jordan's fatal crash. One more additional scene is restored where Hal and Jason talk longer about the perfect game and asking the boy to remember the feeling of that day.
