ThirtyMinutesOfGreenLanternWatch: From someone who has seen just that;

The photos and trailers that have been released are probably the worst marketing effort that Warner Bros have done in recent history after seeing the preview footage. The scope, scale, comedy and action elements are lost in what they've shown us and therefore have given us geeks reason to hate.We saw today extended sequences of Abin Sur, the Green Lantern that will pass his ring to Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) fighting Parallax in space, an amazing plane sequence that really helps the audience relate and identify with Hal Jordan on his road to becoming an intergalactic policeman, scenes with Tomar Re, Killowog and Sinestro all look great. The CG is as great as can be done with, everything except Ryan Reynolds' head, being the only real thing in any given scene.

Most impressive is the Green Lantern suit that Reynolds wears.
