Flying for Dummies in a New 'Green Lantern' Clip

General audiences don't really need an explanation that Bruce Wayne's parents were murdered, or that Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive/genetically-engineered spider, but the mythology behind Green Lantern is not quite so well known.  Recent marketing for the 3D adventure have balanced between backstory and cosmic action.  This new clip is no exception.  Tomar Re, the alien Lantern voiced by Geoffrey Rush, lays a few things out for Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds, then the two go scooting around the planet Oa.  Take a look at some cool flying effects right here.

If the definition of this clip just isn't high enough, you can check out "Welcome to Oa" in HD at Yahoo! Movies.

For a director with no prior experience in either comic book films or spacefaring science fiction, Martin Campbell has embraced the intergalactic elements of Green Lantern to an extent that remains surprising, and distinguishes his film from its cinematic contemporaries.

Among the flesh-and-blood stars of Green Lantern are Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins, and Mark Strong, with Rush and Michael Clarke Duncan providing vocal support.  The film hits theaters in no time at all, on June 17th.
