Last chance for the universe

Catch ‘Green Lantern’ on HBO at 9.30 pm on October 19. In this movie, a cocky test pilot, Hal Jordan (played by Ryan Reynolds), acquires superhuman powers when he is chosen by the Ring — the willpower-fed source of power of the Green Lantern Intergalactic Corps. He, reluctantly at first, takes on the challenges these superheroes face.

Putting his self-doubts aside and spurred on by his sense of duty and love for his beautiful, intellectually-equal, colleague Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), he is soon called to defend mankind from Parallax, a super-powerful being who feeds on fear. He is the universe’s last chance, as many Lanterns have been killed and the Corps is weakened. And he might just be the right Lantern for the job of keeping the world safe from harm.
The movie is based on the characters of comics series ‘Green Lantern’.
