The new Green Lantern trailer is loaded with goodies that are sure to please comic book devotees. In case your eyes couldn’t move fast enough to catch them all, we’ve grabbed 40 high-res images for your still-framed pleasure!
Included in the eye-candy are shots of Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) as well as fellow Green Lanterns Abin Sur (Temuera Morrison), Kilowog, Tomar-Re and everyone’s favorite, Sinestro (Mark Strong). We’ve also got glimpses of Hal Jordan’s nemesis, Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard) and his on-again, off-again romantic interest, Carol Ferris (Blake Lively). Sharp-eyed fans will see that Ferris’s helmet emblem resembles a certain image that’s pretty instrumental to her character. Sequel anyone?
And since the Green Lantern costume is almost entirely CG, we’ve slowed down the transformation sequence so you can watch it bit by virtual bit. Check out the power battery as well! Hit the jump for the images:

If there’s one thing Steven Soderbergh can never be accused of, it’s passivity. Soderbergh just wrapped production on his first foray into the action realm, Knockout. He’s currently filming the star-stuffed thriller Contagion. He’s set to film a Liberace biopic with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon next summer. And now, just to add to the workload, Soderbergh is in early talks to direct The Man from U.N.C.L.E., an adaptation of the 1960s spy series.

OLDBOY Director Park Chan-Wook in Talks for STOKER; Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster Confirmed to Star

South Korean writer/director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy) is in talks to make his English-language debut with Stoker. Based on a script from actor Wentworth Miller (Resident Evil: Afterlife), Stoker centers on “the story of an eccentric teen whose enigmatic and estranged uncle who returns to the family after the death of the girl’s father.”
Last we checked, Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go) and Jodie Foster were in negotiations to star. Their involvement has been confirmed, and it is suggested that Fox Searchlight seeks a similarly high profile name to fill the male lead, the “estranged uncle.” More after the jump.
According to 24 Frames, there is no major “genre element” in Miller’s script that immediately declares its allure to Park. But Stoker reportedly sports a dark tone worthy of the filmmaker.Lazy bones that I am, I’ve only seen Oldboy, with the other members of The Vengeance Trilogy (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) and last year’s Thirst on my list. But all it takes is one to know that Park is a disturbed individual. I’m alternately excited and horrified for Park to put the “strange” back into “estranged uncle.” In English! Buoyed by the angelic presence of Carey Mulligan, no less.
Hopefully Stoker gets to theaters before the threatened Will Smith/Steven Spielberg remake of Oldboy.
