Green Lantern Finally Tops The $200 Million Mark
Warner Brothers' Green Lantern has finally turned a profit! Sort of...

So Green Lantern currently sits at $205M at the worldwide box office. While many will say that marketing costs will still negate declaring that the movie has turned a profit, remember that the marketing number is largely unknown and is often just a number thrown out there by the media. Likewise, the profit from DVD's, video games, and other licensing initiatives are also unknown so I like to think that they cancel out the marketing costs.
Green Lantern will be released on DVD Oct. 14, 2011.
Green Lantern is a 2011 superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The film stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, with Martin Campbell directing a script by Greg Berlanti and comic book writers Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, which was subsequently rewritten by Michael Goldenberg.
Green Lantern was released on June 17, 2011, in 3D.
Justin Chang of Variety gave Green Lantern a negative review, stating, "Martin Campbell's visually lavish sci-fi adventure is a highly unstable alloy of the serious, the goofy and the downright derivative." Manohla Dargis of The New York Times said, "Green Lantern is bad. This despite Mr. Reynolds's dazzling dentistry, hard-body physique and earnest efforts, and the support of fine performers like Peter Sarsgaard ... Mark Strong ... and Angela Bassett". Christy Lemire of the Associated Press called it a "joyless amalgamation of expository dialogue and special effects that aren't especially special." Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times had mixed feelings, stating, "Green Lantern does not intend to be plausible. It intends to be a sound-and-light show, assaulting the audience with sensational special effects. If that's what you want, that's what you get."
