‘Green Lantern’ lights up the Box Office

One of the most anticipated films to arrive this year, “Green Lantern”, has easily blasted its way to the top of the weekend’s box office, with $52.7 million. However, this makes it the lowest opening for a superhero movie, in comparison with “X-Men: First Class” ($55.1 million) and Thor” ($65.7 million).

The film has not been warmly embraced by critics, as the movie has scored a disappointing 26% on Rotten Tomatoes, while scoring 41% on Metacritic. The audience ratings, however, are higher with 61% of the people giving it a positive review on Rotten Tomatoes and 67% of them giving it a positive review on Metacritic.

The film cost $200 million to produce with an additional $100 million for promotional costs. I’m hoping that the film remains a success in the long run. You can watch the trailer after the jump.
