Green Lantern gets good reviews by comic book fans – Martin Campbell’s 3-D movie a hit so far

Green Lantern grossed $21.6 million at the box office opening night (Friday): According to early figures online, the comic book-superhero was less than anticipated, but had a lot of competition. By comparison, Thor, the last comic superhero movie hit near $26 million on its opening night in May.

The media, especially the LA Times reviews (three articles on Friday) were brutal. Those reviews and a few others will not help the weekend gross receipts expected to be around $55 million.

It is a fun movie, not dark like some DC Comic Book films have been in the past. In fact you can take your children to this one. It has more going on than Spiderman, at least in what I experienced.

I predict when it goes global and plays in Europe and Japan, it will prove the media was wrong,  again about this movie that cost around $200 million to make with Martin Campbell at the helm. I think the PG-13 film will do well, and I give it two thumbs up.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins was not even a close second with around $6.4 million. That’s about what Jim Carrey’s comedy movie made three years ago with Yes Man. And it also tells you about the economy and how people are waiting for it to come to DVD, or just can’t afford to go to the movies all of the time. If you missed the premiere in Hollywood, enjoy these images below. You will not find them anywhere else.
