GREEN LANTERN Movie Promotion Will Illuminate 11 Major Cities for Fans to Join the Corps
Published: June 8, 2011 - 1:34pm
Warner Bros' next live-action superhero film, Green Lantern, is taking over New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver and eight other cities and fans are asked to participate in the celebration.
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
In celebration of the June 17th theatrical release and big-screen debut of the popular superhero Green Lantern, Warner Bros. Pictures will electrify 11 North American cities on Monday, June 13, encouraging people to Join the Corps. Markets include:
* Los Angeles
* New York City
* San Diego
* Kansas City
* St. Louis
* New Orleans (where the film was shot)
To Join the Corps, fans will be invited to decipher local clues leading them to a secret location where the Green Lantern symbol will be projected from dusk until midnight. Those attending the events, sponsored by Kodak, will have the chance to win fantastic prizes, including an opportunity to be among the first to see the film at local preview screenings, limited edition T-shirts, light-up Green Lantern rings, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights Blu-ray combo packs and more. And some people who are photographed with the projected symbol behind them will have their photos posted on the movie Facebook page. Select markets will also give people the chance to record the Green Lantern oath which will be added to the Infinite Oath app on the movie website.
Directed by Martin Campbell and starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins and Angela Bassett, Green Lantern is scheduled to hit 2D and 3D theaters June 17th, 2011.
