Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal, X-Men Origins, Definitely, Maybe) will attend the Australian premiere of his superhero action flick GREEN LANTERN in Melbourne on Tuesday August 9, 2011 before he walks the red carpet at the Sydney premiere the following night (Wednesday August 10).
Protectors of peace and justice, the Green Lantern Corps is a brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, but when a new enemy threatens to destroy the balance of power, their fate and that of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds).
A gifted and cocky test pilot, 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. But the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring that grants each with superpowers. Encouraged by fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart, Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), Hal must quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears in order to defeat their enemy and become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
Based on the DC comic book series, the film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong and Academy Award winners Angela Bassett and Tim Robbins.
GREEN LANTERN releases in cinemas nationally on August 11, 2011 and is rated M.
