A few days ago, we posted Entertainment Tonight’s Green Lantern teaser as part of their special about director Martin Campbell’s much-anticipated take on the popular DC Comics classic. Well, fans rejoice: the full trailer has just been released.  Starring a pumped up Ryan Reynolds and a brunette Blake Lively, as well as Peter Sarsgaard and Mark Strong, the movie will hit theaters on June 17, 2011. Until then, expect with more photos and footage.

The tone seems light and the humor punctuated with Ryan Reynolds’ on-the-beat delivery, while the costumes look pretty darn cool. As far as adaptations go, this feels exciting and will surely garner new Green Lantern fans along the way.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer and leave your thoughts in the comments:

The full trailer will debut in theaters this Friday prior to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part. It’s going to look even better on a big screen!

Watch it in HD on Apple.  And for more on Green Lantern, you can check out 40 high resolution images from the trailer here.

Here’s the synopsis:

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.  The movie also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Jay O. Sanders, Temuera Morrison, Taika Waititi, Jon Tenney, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins.
