I thought they did. Oh well. Point is that someone does not want the Punisher film franchise to die. Perhaps there is someone that won't let the Green Lantern franchise die.

I liked the Tom Jane Punisher movie and really wish they would have followed up from there, War Zone was just a clusterfuck and went all "comic book" with its look. It was like a batman forever version of the Punisher.

The first punisher was made on a fairly low budget and made money, thats why it got another one.

But that one sucked.

I agree, the Thomas Jane Punisher was the best out of the 3 and fairly decent, except y'know John Travolta

i didnt even mind travolta, given the way the story plays out its reasonable to suggest someone would act that way.

There is nothing intimidating about the man, even as Vincent Vega I just can't see him as any kind of tough guy

I think WB could make another Green Lantern for about $150 million.
GL was orginally slated as having $150 million dollar budget. Sequels are cheaper to make since the art design, character models etc are already created and there can typically be less marketing. I think its very doable to do GL for around that.

The franchise can be a money maker as long as they fix the story. The market is there and the character is still popular judging by comic sales and may get more popular with the animated series. If they put a good story in place then they could have a real blockbuster. They need to remember that flashy cgi and star power names aren't enough to make money. I just hope WB still sees the potential to continue.

The character models for existing characters are there, but whatever new elements they introduce have to be designed and such, so it can still get pricey.

I think that would be the case, especially if they do not go with a reboot. I mean, a Green Lantern sequel would have to feature the GL Corp, which means all kinds of CGI characters, scenery and special effects.

Was any one here lucky enough to snatch up a steelbook blu ray? I got jipped by Best Buy. Since I live 90 miles away, I ordered online and when I got there they said it was out of stock. aaarghh!! If anyone has an extra steelbook, and would be nice enough to part with it, I would reimburse you what you paid + shipping...and if you wanted some cool GL merch from Six Flags I could facilitate that too.

I already have 2 capes, 2 beanies, some tshirts, just to name a few things.

Do you have a Samsung 65D8000 65"LED or one of the HUGE Mitsubishi DLPs? Just wondering because those are two of the finalists to replace my 11 yo monster projection.

Regardless, glad you enjoyed watching GL as it should be. Definitely a great way to break in a new set!

The way to watch GL as it should be is in a theater.

Normally I'd agree but watching it at home.was a way better experience for me, I thought the 3D was more pronounced at home than what I got the theatre.

Yeah, but going to the theatre can be a pain in the ass somtimes. Not even with money, but it seems more and more people don't know how to shut the fuck up when watching a movie. I constantly see the light of their phones, and it's pretty distracting.

You are a asshole if you talk or do something else during the movie.

I was disappointed in the merchandising for Green Lantern. There wasn't enough apparel. I was expecting more T-shirts, sweaters, hoodies and a bunch of jerseys to be made, but that never happened. Plus, a Green Lantern motorcycle jacket with the logo on the back would have been awesome.

I agree with you 110% I can't stand when a couple brings a baby in with them..then the lil brat starts crying and the parents wait forever to take the kid out. I understand you want to go see a movie but if you can't find a sitter then suck it up and stay home. I'm paying to see a movie not hear your kid cry!!

I thought the merchandising for the film was fine itself, it's how they choose to approach that had me up in flames.
