Here’s the official synopsis for Green Lantern:

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. 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.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

In the movie, Charlie (Yelchin) is a teen who is convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, though no one believes him. Farrell will play the vampire, named Jerry, who on the surface appears to be a cool guy but is really preying on the neighborhood.

Mintz-Plasse is playing Evil Ed, Charlie’s friend who feels slighted that Charlie has left his nerdy past behind and thus joins the vampire’s coven.

The new film is directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) and is set to hit theaters on August 19th.

Logans Run


The project is based on the 1967 novel by William F. Nolan that was adapted into the 1976 film starring Michael York. The base of the story for those of you that have no clue is a future society where people are executed upon reaching a certain age and those that seek to avoid their fate are deemed “Runners.” There was also a short lived TV series also named Logan’s Run (1977-1978) which picks up where the original movie left off.

The character of Logan is one of those executioners, known as the Sandmen, who ends up on the run after he becomes sympathetic with members of an underground railroad of Runners.

Beall will be picking up writing duties after Alex Garland (Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later), who was previously attached to the project.

 

The Smurfs


Plot: In the film, the evil wizard Gargamel (Azaria) chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village. They tumble from their magical world and into ours – in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

The live-action/CG animated film is directed by Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Scooby-Doo) and is scheduled to hit conventional and 3D theaters on August 3rd.
