Green Latern shines at the box office opening night -Martin Campbells most anticipated comic book hero movie of the year gets thumbs up

Green Lantern Dir. Martin Campbell and Actress Sol Romero
Green Lantern grosed $21.6 million at the box office last night: 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 the first debut I saw. My predicting is when it goes global and plays in Europe and Japan, it will proove the media was wrong, again about this flick 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 arouhd $6.4 million. That’s about what Jim Carrey’s comedy movie made three years ago with Yes Man.
