Warner Bros. Ignores Critics; Pursues "Green Lantern" Sequel

Warner Bros. Ignores Critics; Pursues "Green Lantern" Sequel

The suits at Warner Bros. apparently didn't get the hints about their underwhelming  Green Lantern flick. Despite the DC Comics adaptation's subpar rating on Rotten Tomatoes (26% on the Tomatometer), the studio is ignoring all naysayers, with plans for the next GL adventure already underway.

How does one spend $300 million to make a CGI spectacle and only bring $53 million back in its opening weekend? That screams "sequel," right? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. will follow-through with their tentative plans to shoot a second and third installment back-to-back.

Over the weekend, Green Lantern fell a steep 66% at the domestic box office, bringing in $18.4 million for a grand total of...$89.3 million. Yet, Dan Fellman, the president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros., still believes in Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds). At least someone does.
