DC Comics' magic-ring-bearing superhero Green Lantern flies off the page and onto the big screen this summer. For centuries, an intergalactic brotherhood of alien warriors, called the Green Lantern Corps, have sworn to uphold peace in the universe. Each Green Lantern wears a mystical green ring that gives him superpowers. But when a powerful villain named Parallax arrives on the scene, it'll be up to the Corps' newest and first human recruit, test pilot Hal Jordan (Reynolds), to save the day.
