Clip Analysis: “Green Lantern” Takes Flight in Movie Tie-In Game

Clip Analysis: “Green Lantern” Takes Flight in Movie Tie-In Game (photo)

Posted by on

Right now, Ryan Reynolds looks like a alpha dog in this summer’s crop of big-budget superhero flicks. The hunky actor’s playing Green Lantern in the adaptation of DC Comics’ long-running sci-fi series about an intergalactic police corps. Reynolds’ Hal Jordan is a test pilot who gets recruited into the Lanterns and quickly must learn all about the abilities of a ring that turns his willpower into energy constructs to help face down a massive cosmic threat.

So, of course, there’s a video game attached to such an action-heavy premise. “Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters” looks to be a side story, adjacent to the movie’s origin narrative. The two aliens next to Hal Jordan are Sinestro, the red-skinned mentor who teaches Hal about the ring, and Lantern Corps drill sergeant Kilowog. The Manhunters showing up to wreak havoc have long been a part of Lantern lore and make for great cannon fodder for a video game.

DC Comics–wholly owned by Warner Bros–recently re-branded as DC Entertainment and the “Green Lantern” game marks the first time that the studio’s film and interactive units have worked in sync around an upcoming project. Other recent video games based off of DC properties, like “DC Universe Online” and “Batman: Arkham Asylum,” have developed by outside studio, with the MMO coming from Sony Online Entertainment and the Bat-game delivered by Rocksteady Studios. The potential rewards here for WB, then, are great: complete oversight of a adjunct tie-in and no money leaving the larger corporate behemoth.

We’ll get to see if the new system works when both the “Green Lantern” game and movie come out in June.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
