ABOUT “GREEN LANTERN”
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, an elite, powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. Warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him the ability to create anything his mind can imagine. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell. Campbell directed the film from a screenplay by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg, story by Greg Berlanti & Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim, based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. The film also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett and Tim Robbins. “Green Lantern” was produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti. Herbert W. Gains and Andrew Haas served as executive producers, with Lucienne Papon and Geoff Johns co-producing.

Thanks to everyone that came out for #geekview9 to see Thor. I know it was a long drive and was thrilled that @ryantxr was able to make it. Plus, since it was in his neck of the woods, we were joined by @AGuyOnClematis who had never been to one of our #geekviewpreview before.
As you can see, it was quite a large turnout and the line just kept getting longer and longer as time went on. Regretfully, due to circumstances beyond our control, the film did not start until 11am, but it was definitely worth the wait. This was, without a doubt, a pure Marvel Comic Book film. This reminded me of just how well Sony did with the first Spider-Man. It’s such a pleasure when you see the movies done right.
@aguyonclematis: I’m on my way… looking forward to #geekview9 THOR is going to ROCK
@sflsocialgeeks: Even in this South Florida heat, at 9am, people are waiting in line outside for #geekview9.
@ryantxr: line is getting long at thor movie #geekview
@aguyonclematis: The line for Thor screening at #geekview9 http://t.co/Cb9xbgV
RT @aguyonclematis: RT @sflsocialgeeks: Can you believe this is the first IRL meeting of @aGuyonClematis & @ryantxr ? #geekview9 http://twitpic.com/4rfww8
@aguyonclematis: The crowd is getting rowdy ouside the Thor screening… if the doors don’t open soon there will be a riot of god-like proportions #geekview9
@aguyonclematis: We’re in!!! #geekview9 preview of Thor is starting
@aguyonclematis: photo: VIP seating at #geekview9 – Thor is about to get started http://bit.ly/kGOR8X
Please remember that, as with all #geekviewpreview events, seating is only available on a first come, first serve basis so we recommend arriving early- usually at least an hour in advance. I will do what I can to save seats, but it’s going to be tough.
Yea, I know that’s going to be early. Those of you, like myself, coming from Broward, are looking, at least, at an hour drive. That means leaving around 8am at the latest; more-so for those of you in Dade.
However, since we are in the Earth Day window, and it’s Green Month, there has been some serious discussion about carpooling if there are enough people interested.
Those who have been to any of my #geekviewpreview events before can tell you that we have a fantastic time and you can just look at our previous events to see for yourself. Don’t you want to be the first of your friends to say that “I just saw THOR !”

Inspired by true events that are too over-the-top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, CASINO JACK lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of lobbyist Jack Abramoff (portrayed in the film by Two-time Academy Award® Winner Kevin Spacey). Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob-connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.
Casino Jack will open South Florida Theaters January 7, 2011.
The advance screening will be held on January 4, 2011 @ 7:30pm
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this preview, so I will need someone to take attendance and pictures in my absence. To get passes, please leave a comment below. I will try to get as many as I can out. Each pass gets 2 people in.
