In the last decade, few genres have grown bigger than superhero films. Introducing wide audiences to characters that some have known about for decades, there's a very specific challenge in making sure that everyone can follow along with the story and not get too lost in the details. In the case of Green Lantern, Warner Bros. has designed a brand new trailer just for that specific purpose.

Hosted by Yahoo!, the new video features a voice-over from Geoffrey Rush - who provides the vocals for Tomar-Re in the film - who outlines the entire history of the Green Lantern Corps from the Emerald Energy to the Immortals. The trailer is a must-see for anyone still confused about the whole Green Lantern universe, and also contains plenty of new footage for those who already know what's going on.

Check out the trailer below or in HD over on Yahoo!.



I've never seen a trailer quite like this before and I am absolutely blown away by it. Providing plenty of information without giving anything away, it almost feels like a prequel that establishes the universe before it's filled with stories. Dramatic, fun and incredibly cool looking, this is the perfect way to sell a film and with any luck it's a style that others will try to replicate going forward.
