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.
Ryan Reynolds and Martin Campbell clashed repeatedly on set. Campbell has stated in interviews that his first and only choice for the lead was Bradley Cooper. However, the studio was not willing to make an offer to him and ultimately cast Reynolds behind Campbell's back. This lead to an uncomfortable experience on set for Reynolds whose performance was constantly critiqued by Campbell who made him do many takes. Reynolds has stated in an interview with Variety that the film's failure was a huge relief as he had such an unpleasant experience and "dreaded doing it again."

There is no minimum ejection altitude for the F-35: it's equipped with a Zero-Zero ejection seat. Zero-Zero means zero altitude and stationary (on the ground).

Part of the closing credits takes place in a montage of seven quasars, each quasar a specific color of the rainbow. This is based on the emotional electromagnetic spectrum, a Green Lantern theorem that states each color is based on a specific emotion.
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.
