green-lantern-header

There has been all kinds of talk about Green Lantern lately as the film production itself rolls out of the station and toward reality. And with it, just as with any major comic book franchise, comes quite a bit of fan expectation — expectations that sometime manifest in odd and exciting ways.

In this instance we have this very cool fan-made trailer for a Green Lantern movie that was posted up to YouTube by a user named JaronPitts. According to the description, this is his vision of a live-action Green Lantern with fanboy hero Nathan Fillion in the lead role. And the trailer works, mostly because it is so outside the box for a fan trailer — very rarely does someone go so far as to cut in an actor’s face, etc. To be completely honest, even though it isn’t perfect, I am very impressed. Even more impressive is the choice of music — which you may remember from the final Star Trek trailer — and the sheer amount of movies from which clips were taken. See if you can pick them out in the trailer below, then compare them to the list that the author published (found below).

Here’s the list of films from which Jaron Pitts took footage:

  • Planet of the Apes
  • Serenity Trailer
  • Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
  • Stardust Trailer
  • The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring
  • Firefly
  • Dragonball Evolution Trailer
  • Galaxy Quest
  • The Fountain Trailer
  • Superman Returns Trailer
  • The Day the Earth Stood Still
  • Smallville
  • Justice League TAS
  • GI Joe Trailer
  • Contact
  • Star Trek Enterprise
  • Star Wars Episode III
  • The Mutant Chronicles Trailer
  • Iron Man
  • Star Trek Trailer
  • Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Cutscene
  • The Chronicles of Riddick
  • Kamen Rider
  • Bedtime Stories
  • MIB 2
  • Escape from Witch Mountain Trailer
  • The Matrix Revolutions
  • The Chronicles of Narnia – Prince Caspian
  • White Noise 2

I’m impressed.
